CHERISH YOUR TIME ON PHUKET BEACH (B)
Phuket is known for its outstanding beaches with a wide variety of scenery, atmospheres, facilities, and even textures of sand. Spend your day relaxing at one of the island's beaches. Here are some recommendations:
Kata Beach is always a reliable option with soft white sand, shady palm trees, water sports, and a laid-back atmosphere. You can easily spend the entire day here with a handful of food and drink vendors.
Another idea is Nai Harn Beach, which has grown in popularity over the years. However, thanks to the relatively small size of the bay and its large lake on the other side, the beach hasn’t been developed like others nearby. You can enjoy a more peaceful atmosphere here.
If you are seeking a more isolated place, head to Freedom Beach with possibly the best white sand in Phuket. Though it's more challenging to get to (you can either hike a steep path or take a longtail boat to arrive), you'll escape the motorized water sports and beach vendors for truly peaceful environs.Overnight in Phuket.
