A beautiful beach that doesn’t disappoint . The only negative was that most of the beach was red flagged as the sea was too rough.(due to the time of year) Lots of beachside eateries and bars , producing great food at a fair price. We...More

Booked into this bay based on reviews, unfortunately our accommodation was not right on the beach but this turned out ok as we were close to some good restaurants (eg Pooh and friends). The beach is good, good waves for body surfing and boogie boarding,...More

This is quite a long beach, nice for walks. Many restaurants dotted around. I wouldn't say it's the best beach in Phuket but there's a bit of everything there including good food, soft sand and trees for shade.

This is a third time staying at Bangtao Bay Beach. We keep returning because of the variety it offers and the beauty it frames. The six-plus km long beach is home to everything from high end resorts to mid-range bungalows to long stretches of emptiness....More

This is a huge beach and I'm sure it is fantastic on a nice day. We visited on a very windy day when the lifeguards had the Red Flags out meaning no swimming. We will visit again in better weather.

Great Beach...long and wide with easy access to the water. Several restaurants and bars at south end. Patrolled beach - lifeguards. Water is calm enough to swim, when Surin Beach is closed due to high waves.
