The Best Beaches in Thailand

White Sand Beach - Best Beaches in Thailand - Just Fly Business

A haven for those seeking sun, sand, and crystal clear azure waters, Thailand has long been on the list for many people looking for a getaway from the UK. So much so that in recent years the influx of tourists has drastically changed the feel and look of a lot of the places, with high-rise hotels and crowded beaches leaving some that visit with a sense of disappointment.

Don’t worry though… there are still a few of Thailand’s best beaches secluded away for you to enjoy… but don’t tell anyone or they will disappear before your eyes!

The Best Beaches in Phuket

Famous for beaches such as Patong Beach, Kata Beach, and Karon Beach, Phuket’s main tourist beaches offer visitors sun lounges and beach hawkers close to their hotel amenities, as well as being a stroll from restaurants, bars, and shopping precincts. Those looking for stretches of isolated white sand will find it hard on Thailand’s largest island, but they can be found!

Laem Sing Beach in Phuket, Thailand

Hat Nai Thon Beach in Phuket

Located on the northwest shores of Phuket, Hat Nai Thon Beach is slowly gaining appeal with customers that are looking to stay away from the bustle of the tourist centres on the island. With only a couple of luxury hotels located at each end of the beach, and a few small restaurants in the area, this beach is a hidden gem on a very busy island.

Laem Sing Beach in Phuket

Situated in a quiet bay between Kamala and Surin on the west coast, this isolated beach is accessed from a small car park and seems a world away from the rest of the island.

The Best Beaches in Krabi

Although the city of Krabi is now built up, the resort area to the west of the city still has secluded and beautiful beaches on offer to its visitors.

Phra Nang Beach in Krabi, Thailand

Phra Nang Beach in Krabi

A short walk through a cave shrine from Railay Beach, the beach of Phra Nang is one of the most picturesque beaches in Thailand. It can get busy at times but is still worth the visit!

Tubkaak Beach in Krabi

Further along the coast, Tubkaak Beach is much more isolated and the swirling white sand makes the perfect place to laze in the sun.

The Best Beaches in Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan, and Koh Tao

The chain of islands in the Gulf of Thailand includes the country’s second largest, Koh Samui, as well as many fantastic beaches throughout the smaller islands. Koh Samui can often be quite busy, and Koh Pha Nang is host to some of the largest beach parties in the country, but as you move further north, the islands can offer hidden gems worth visiting!

Nang Yuan Beach near Koh Tao, Thailand

Mae Nam Beach in Koh Samui

Quieter than the main area of Chaweng Beach, but still lined with palm trees and azure waters, Mae Nam Beach is postcard perfect on this busy island.

Thong Nai Pan Beach in Koh Pha Ngan

Steer clear of the southern beaches on Koh Pha Ngan which become crowded with party goers all night, and head for the quieter Thong Nai Pan (Noi and Yoi) on the northeast coast of the island. With white sand and green surroundings, this more pristine area of the island is the perfect beach escape!

Nang Yuan Beach in Koh Tao

Nang Yuan Beach is just off the northwest coast of the island of Koh Tao and accessed by a 15 minute boat ride. Although Koh Tao itself is known more for rocky headlands and diving spots, this private island has possibly the best beach in the country. Visit for the day and watch the sun meander across the sandbar with a drink in hand!

The Best Beaches in Koh Phi Phi

Probably the most famous of Thailand’s islands due to the Leonardo DiCaprio movie “The Beach”, Koh Phi Phi is made up primarily of two main land masses, Koh Phi Phi Don and Koh Phi Phi Leh. Due to it’s popularity it can get very crowded but that shouldn’t make these beaches any less of a must-see on your Thailand beach escape.

Maya Beach in Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

Loh Dalum Beach in Koh Phi Phi Don

With back-to-back crescent beaches on the island of Koh Phi Phi Don, the jetty stretches out yearning for your arrival into Tonsai Bay. The beach behind the village, Loh Dalum Beach, is less polluted by boat traffic, and it’s shallow azure waters are prefect to laze by!

Maya Beach in Koh Phi Phi Leh

The famous beach filmed in the movie can be found on Koh Phi Phi Leh, the smaller of the two islands. With no accommodation on this island, a day trip is the only way to experience it. Try getting there early to avoid the crowds as Maya Bay can end up looking like a marina by midday!

Getting There

With such a beautiful country blessed with amazing people, food, and sunshine, these beaches are just the beginning… and getting there is easy! Just Fly Business can help organise your first and business class flights through vibrant cities such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and many others to combine a beach escape with a city break on the way to Phuket or Krabi.
