Many signs saying you can't swim. Rubbish everywhere. Looks pretty abandoned. The water is very dirty and there is absolutely nothing to do. If you are after a nice beach to swim and chill at I personally do NOT recommend this beach.

A good place if you wanna stay clear of the noisy beaches with many people. Here you can simply relax to the sounds of nature and hear the waves roll with a book and cocktail or two

Such beautiful beach but infested with flies that gave painful bites all over my body. It is worst under the shade or in restaurants. The stench of clogged up drain is pretty bad too. This place needs a good clean up!

I travelled to Layan Beach from Bang Tao beach about 20-25 minutes by moped. A beautiful stretch of beach that is quieter than Bang Tao and no less impressive. It took a couple of minutes before realising that Layan Beach is a continuation of Bang...More

We read about Layan Beach in a local magazine article touting it as one of the 3 best “unknown” beaches in Phuket. While not really unknown, Layan Beach does not suffer from the overcrowding and mass of humanity at the more popular Patong Beach. What...More

Read a review how it was the most boring beach and it was right on point. No one was rowdy, no hardcore water sports, no jersey shore boys and girls. Perfect! If you have family and/or want a quiet beach almost all to yourself this...More
