Phuket beaches certainly are one of the main reasons why Phuket has become one of the main travel destinations in Asia. There are various different Phuket beaches on both the west and east coast of Phuket.
The vast majority of Phuket resorts and hotels are however build along the Phuket beaches which can be found on the western side of Phuket which include Patong Beach, Kata Beach, Kamala Beach, Karon Beach and Surin Beach. There are also a number of beautiful Phuket beaches which are still left somewhat unspoiled as tourists often don't know about these secluded Phuket beaches.
Unfortunately most tourists don't leave their resort area and are therefore unaware about all these other magnificent beaches on Phuket.
We do recommend that you should take at least one day during your vacation and use this day to explore the island and visit some of the lesser known Phuket beaches. We are certain that you will have a really great time.
Also please remember that if you are visiting Phuket during the peak season which is from November until April. the popular Phuket beaches such as Patong beach and Kata beach become very crowded and busy. This is why you should rent a jeep, scooter or long tail boat and go and discover some other Phuket beaches.
