If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in 2019, then Thailand beach living is the answer. Thailand not only has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world but also, there is a lot of variety to choose from ranging from the beaches with week-long beach parties such as the ones on Koh Phangan, pristine white sandy beaches that are not touristy and lively beaches teeming with great energy for every solo traveller or travel parties, families and couples alike. Beyond the beaches are stunning sea views, bays and water sports that will satisfy your yearning for the call of the ocean and its beautiful relaxing nature. Here are some of the best beaches to frequent if you want a beach holiday.
- Krabi’s Railay Beach
This beach is perfect for a family relaxing holiday because it can only be accessed by boat from Ao Nang or Krabi. It is a quiet intimate beach that is within reach of the town and makes it a great atmosphere for hanging out to enjoy solo time or bond with the family without the hustle and bustle of the crowds.
- Bottle Beach in Koh Phangan
If your definition of a relaxing beach holiday is solitude then this beautiful beach will be a true haven for you. Consisting of white sands lapped by gentle blue waters and surrounded by mountains, it is a slice of paradise reachable only by boat and great for long-term travellers. You can stay at some of the Thailand luxury villas available here as with every other part of Thailand.
- Karon Beach in Phuket
If you want a beach with great nightlife and restaurants to let loose but without the seediness of Patong, then Karon beach is a great option. Here you can mingle and whirl the night away while enjoying the ocean and the sandy beach atmosphere.
- Phra Nang Beach in Krabi
This beach is a just a short walk’s distance from Railay and has great activities such as cave explorations and rock climbing. Instead of a walk you can get there via a therapeutic kayak ride to get even more sea views.
- Kata Beach in Phuket
If you have kids, Kata Beach is the best beach to go to in Phuket. It has calm waters and great restaurants that are only a short walk away. Besides, there are great beachfront luxury villas that offer magnificent sea views that will keep you contented.
- Bo Phut Beach in Koh Samui
Most of the beautiful beaches in this island are to the eastside but overrun with international hotels and food chains. As such the Bo Phut is a welcome breath of fresh air on this tropical island as it still retains the charm of a fishing village with its Portuguese stilt houses and great sands, seafood and atmosphere. It is one of the best places to relax in Koh Samui.
