Patong Beach, Phuket

Patong Beach is a 3.5 km stretch of sand, in just 3 min away from Bangla Road. Bars there are known for their world famous nightlife.

It is the busiest place on the island of Phuket, and because of its size and variety, everyone can find something they like here. The beach has a lot of water sports activities to try, while the beachside eateries offer many options for dining.

Activities and things to do

The place usually comes alive in the late afternoon as people stroll along the many bars, restaurants, and shops that line up the entire stretch of the beach.

The downside is that Patong beach lacks a high tide for swimming and fishing. However, it is big, wide, and long, and has some stunning sunset views at various points.

The upside is that the Patong Beach has just about all the amenities tourists would expect in a public beach.
