Thailand’s tropical beaches are renowned for their world-class beauty, white sand beaches and secluded locations. Skip the backpacker beaches and head to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Trust us, you will not be disappointed.
Nai Harn BeachLocated in the southern region and the more quiet area of Phuket is Nai Harn Beach. This beach is one of the most popular beaches with the locals. Surrounded by thick jungle, Nai Harn escapes the bustling all-inclusive hotel beachcomber traffic. The gentle waters make this a perfect snorkeling destination November through April.
Railay BeachIsolated from the mainland, Railey peninsula is the perfect beach escape. Large limestone spires protrude from the crystal-clear waters surrounded by a tropical jungle. Railay is quieter than its neighbor Krabi. Sail the warm Andaman waters in an old wooden boat and relax on one of Thailand’s most chilled out beaches.
