Travel Tuesday – Bang Tao Beach in Phuket, Thailand

September 20, 2016

Bang Tao Beach in Phuket is by far my favourite spot on the island. It could be those majestic swings or the 300baht ($9) massages; either way, I still look back and wish I was on that beach 24/7. Phuket has racked up a bad name with those wanting peace and quiet because of the famous hub that is Patong. Tourists don’t understand that there are beautiful spots dotted around the island…

Why Bang Tao Beach?

Personally, I would plan to spend the entire day on Bang Tao Beach. You’ve got the ocean, restaurants, massage ladies and even a bar for sundowners; most of the restaurants are situated on the beach itself. Phuket has been clamping down on businesses being placed near the ocean, hopefully, they haven’t wiped away most of what you will see below. If they have, apologies, but I’m sure it is still worth the visit!

When to go:

Monsoon seasons hits from around June until October, if you don’t like heavy rains and humidity levels of 1 million, try to avoid those months.

How much will I spend during the day?

A foot massage – 300baht

Fried rice for lunch – 200baht

Beverages throughout the day – 400baht

Change beer – 100baht

Taxi/Tuk tuk – this would depend on where you’re starting from, but I would budget around 500baht – 1000baht

Dinner – 200baht – 300baht

Now it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for, these incredible pictures! I remember sitting on this swing and realising how lucky I was to be alive… this beach will do that to you!

So… who’s going to Bang Tao Beach? 😉 It’s simply magical and quieter than you would expect.

Try stay for the sunset, even if it’s only for the photo opportunity!

Until next #TravelTuesday… Happy travels!
