It's impossible not to be tempted by this long stretch of white sand and good dry-season swimming (it's great for running year-round). You will find that the beach is more open than most in Phuket—there are no trees covering the beach and precious little shade. The beach is also strewn with a few rocks; however, on the whole, it is a beautiful, clean, and open space that will appeal to those looking to get away from the more frantic pace of Patong. Amenities:
food and drink; water sports; showers. Best for: snorkeling; sunset; swimming; walking.
