Ms.Aporn, a spa therapist working in Patong
Ms.Aporn smiled at us and told us her impressions about Phuket beaches. “I had seen the pictures of beaches in Phuket in magazines and TV programs when I was a child. I thought that this island was very fascinating and I was proud for Phuket residents who lived on this island. Then I had a chance to visit Phuket. As I found that Phuket beaches were much more beautiful than their pictures I had seen, I decided to move from Khon Kaen and begin a therapist career here” said Aporn.
Aporn told us that she and her friends always go to picnic on the beaches around Phuket. It is such a fun time whenever she and her friends chat and have meals together there. So, she would like to invite people to come to travel in Phuket and experience by themselves why Phuket beaches are very popular among foreign travelers.
Beaches in Phuket
Phuket offers tourists its several white powdery beaches located in the western and eastern parts of the island. However, most of its popular beaches are located along the west coast to the south coast namely: Bang Tao Beach, Surin Beach, Kamala Beach, Patong Beach, Karon Beach, Kata Yai Beach, Kata Noi Beach, and Nai Harn Beach.
Each of these beaches have unique characteristics. The most famous beach of Phuket is Patong Beach. The beach is naturally beautiful and vivacious at the same time. Kata Noi Beach, Kata Yai Beach, and Karon Beach are three crescent moon shaped bays which are really beautiful when looking down from a hill viewpoint.
They say that the sun, sea, and sand and wind in Phuket are in dreams of people around the world. We believe that people who have been to this island would never complain about the beaches. Yet, for the ones who’ve never visited Phuket, come over to the island and realize your dreams about Phuket’s beauty because we cannot fully tell you how Phuket is only by pictures and words.
