Fodor's Review

Patong Beach itself, which used to be cluttered with beach umbrellas, now has some room for both sunbathing and playing soccer or Frisbee on the beach. Every conceivable beach activity from wakeboarding to jet skiing to parasailing is available. Patong became so popular because of its picture perfect paradisical nature, and now its popularity has caused some degradation of the environment, particularly noticeable when the monsoon rains wash the grime off the street and onto the beach. Amenities: food and drink; showers; toilets; watersports Best for: partiers; walking; swimming; sunsets
