Coastal Thailand

world renowned beaches

There’s a reason Thailand’s beaches are world renowned. From the legendary shores of Phuket to the sublime coastline of Khao Lak, the beaches here are powder soft, palm-lined and soaked in sunshine.

To the south lie the beautiful islands of Phuket and Koh Samui, each famed for their world-class hotels, lush scenery and gorgeous beaches. The largest of Thailand’s islands, Phuket has been alluring visitors for many years with its vibrant nightlife, stylish accommodation and long stretches of sun-kissed coast, whilst Koh Samui charms with great restaurants and an award-winning spa.

If you’re looking for a quieter spot to soak up the sun, consider the remote island of Koh Kood. Lying some 80 km from the coast of Trat, you will find some stunning and unspoilt deserted beaches ideal for getting away from it all.

Thailand’s tropical islands may get the most attention, but you don’t need to leave the mainland to find spotless beaches. Krabi is nestled on south-west coast of Thailand, and impresses time and again with its clear waters, immaculate sandy beaches, coral reefs and stunning limestone karsts that rise dramatically from the sea. There are many activities to keep the adventurous busy, such as scuba diving and rock climbing.

Whether you’re an expert or a beginner, keen divers shouldn’t miss out on Koh Tao. Though small, this jungle-clad island offers some incredible and diverse diving with crystal clear and warm waters rich in exciting marine life.
