  • I found Patong Beach to be a really nice beach to relax on. I felt safe there at all times. The beach is pretty much 100% sand (a very occasionally stone), the water warm. One minor negative is that t...  more »
  • As indicated above, the beach is nice with the crowds and activities. But after u let it all sink in, it's very average. I mean, for a family with young children, this won't meet your needs unless you...  more »
  • I know that many do not like Patong, calling him a dirty and crowded. And I like this place that all nearby. Shops, restaurants with food to suit every taste and budget, here are the cheapest accommodations and most importantly-you can easily find a company and making new friends. When I visited almost all the beaches in Phuket, but as before, here, stop at Patong. And the beach I like here too. Moderately deep, clean, there is always sun beds, you can have a massage, enjoy a drink or take a ride on the scooter. Convenient location and a huge choice of accommodation from hostels for 100 baht per night to expensive hotels. Here there is a huge shopping malls and cheapest prices on massages and products. A bunch of European young people partying until morning and a huge selection of places where you can grab a snack. This is the place for those who love to party and meet new people. As well as the perfect choice for those who can't drive a bike and doesn't want to splurge on a taxi. Everything is nearby, very convenient!

  • It is a nice beach to check out, although lots of reviewers will say its busy. It is pretty clean, water looks good, but there are waves. The hawkers on that beach are alright (not as aggressive as other places I've been to). Its fun to walk, and its clean. Must visit!
  • Love the warm waters of this beautiful, sandy beach hugged by palm fronds. Go early cos it does become rather busy. Expect dozens of sellers trying to sell you tattoos, water sports, etc.
  • Good hotel, long beach and smooth sandy, a lot of plenty of stall pub and bar around the corner. Good for relaxing at beach in day time and shoping at night. Good local and international foods you just name it.
  • Great beach... water looked clean but a bit wavy. It's a long stretch of beach, so although it is busy, it is not like you dont have enough space. Lots of crabs and other animals near the shore. Its fun to watch the parasailing go by. Highly recommend visiting.
  • A gorgeous scenic area in a tourist-filled town. Lovely, warm, open beaches with a great local feel.
