5 best beaches in Thailand

top 5 beaches thailand
Thailand attracts tourists a variety of entertainment, including the most spicy and piquant. And yet, tormented by the cloudy and dank weather, travelers go there, first of all, to meet the sun, the sea, the beaches. Thai beaches with their fine sand and turquoise waves stretch for about 2000 kilometers. Let’s see which beaches are better.

Maya Bay in Phi Phi

Maya Bay in Phi Phi

It was on this island, on the beach of the Gulf of Maya Beach, that the movie “The Beach” was shot with Leonardo di Caprio in the lead role. Looking at the bizarre cliffs and the bright turquoise water of the bay, it is not difficult to guess why these places attracted the Hollywood producers. You can come here for a day by ferry from Phuket. Do not forget to grab the mask and the tube!

Bamboo Island

Bamboo Island

Bamboo Island is located north of the Phi Phi archipelago. It is quite small – it can be walked around in about half an hour. This is a real tropical paradise without a single structure, created by human hands! There is no place to stay here, respectively, but it is quite possible to spend the night on the island by savages.

Railay West

Railay West

This beach is located between the cities of Krabi and Ao Nang. Its main attraction is a huge limestone rock, rising from the bottom of the sea off the coast. There is no road here – the surrounding rocks are too steep for you to make your way through them. Therefore, you can get here only by boat – or steep paths from the beach of East Railay Bay.

Chaweng Beach

Chaweng Beach

Chaweng is a beach for party lovers, who, however, do not spoil its pristine beauty. It is always fun and crowded, and in addition, you will not be difficult to find housing that goes directly to Chaweng – from a modest bungalow to a luxury villa.

Mai Khao Beach

Mai Khao Beach

Mai Khao is the longest beach in Phuket. A strip of golden sand stretches for more than ten kilometers south of the airport. Here, as a rule, it is crowded, and from November to February the number of holidaymakers is replenished by lovers of wild nature: they come to Mai Kao to watch sea turtles lay eggs.
