Phuket in pictures: beaches
If there’s one thing that keeps people coming back to Phuket, year after year, it’s the beaches. There are just so many to choose from – each unique. You’ve got the popular beach at Patong that attracts throngs of tourists, and then there’s the near-deserted beaches in places like Mai Khao. Holidaymakers often head to places like Kata and Karon, while locals find solace in the beautiful scenery at beaches like Surin and Bang Tao. There are also a number of peaceful islands just off the coast of Phuket that can be reached by boat, such as Rang Yai Island. No matter where you are in Phuket – be it north or south, east or west – you are guaranteed to be able to find golden sands, clear waters and perfect weather. The beaches are what make Phuket such a magical island.
