Freedom Beach is very calm place surrounded by jungles what makes it pretty isolated. Stunning sceneries, crystal clear water, white sand and lush flora will definitely strike you! You can get there only by boat during high season.

Banana Beach is a small paradise what makes swimming and snorkelling ideal there. The beach has lots of beautiful green palms and only one cosy seafood restaurant.

Kata and Kata Noi both situated very close to each other. The area is full of restaurants and cafes which offers traditional Thai cuisine. Beaches are perfect for swimming, sunbathing and snorkelling.

Leam Sing Beach is very small but one of the most beautiful in Phuket island. It's surrounded by rock formations, jungles and has many deck chairs for renting. The beach is suitable for swimming and other water activities, like jet-skis, para-sailing, water skiing and banana boat rides.

Best time to enjoy Phuket's beaches is high tourist season from November until May with the hottest months from March to May. Despite the fact that Thailand is all year round destination, during the rainy season, which runs from the middle of May until October, swimming and other water activities won't as enjoyable due to bad weather.
