Best Beaches for Surfing in Phuket

Here's a list of Best Beaches for Surfing in Phuket recommended by our experts:

Phuket, also known as the ‘Pearl of the Andaman’ is dotted with many sandy beaches and clear waters – each with a different allure and often with watersports adventures! The frenzied pace of Patong Beach is a stark contrast to the peace and quiet of remote stretches of sand in the north. The cliff areas of Rat-U-Thit Road and Beach Road and winding coastal roads along the west coast of this 540-square-km island overlook some of the best beaches in Thailand – Patong, Kata, and Karon, and they tempt keen tourists with numerous sunset bars like La Versace, 360 Degree, Downstairs, and Boathouse. For many visiting Phuket, sun and sand and booze go hand in hand! Anticipate stunning views and easy access to some of the world's finest beaches. Have you packed your swimsuit yet? The pleasant bay of Kata, just a few minutes south of Karon Beach, entices and charms many visitors with its white sands and clear waters. Very popular with families, Kata is an all round favourite due to its spectacular palm-lined beach, great restaurants, lively but not raucous nightlife and varied accommodation options - all close to the beach. From May to October surfers flock to catch Kata's waves and from November to April the beach is alive with sunseekers. Here is a definitive list of the most popular beaches for snorkelling and other water sports in Phuket:
