Few places in the world boast such an array of beautiful beaches with white sands and crystal clear waters as does Phuket. From the popular Patong Beach which daily draws hundreds of visitors to its shores, to the quieter Kata Noi hidden away from the crowds, Phuket has a strip of sand for everyone. For those who want to burn off some energy, activities such as parasailing, jet skiing and snorkeling can be found on many of the more popular beaches. The best beaches in Phuket for snorkeling would be Ao Sane and Paradise Beach. While for those who prefer to sit back and enjoy the atmosphere there are beachside massages, restaurants and cocktail bars around every corner of Phuket. In this regard, the best beaches in Phuket for relaxing, with a more secluded, hidden feeling would be Mai Khao, Had Sai or Freedom Beach. When the day is done, Phuket offers some of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see, framed by sheer limestone cliffs and the lazy coconut palms which line the beaches.
