Patong Beach pictures

Patong Beach is the busiest area on Phuket and we’ve tried to capture some of its character with these pictures. Patong can be busy and unsightly in parts and is not for every one, yet there are many fantastic angle.

These pictures of Patong will hopefully give you an impression of what to expect, from rows of loungers and umbrellas to full length pictures of the beach front, the inviting sea and the evening character

Patong sights

Patong is the sort of place where you can wander off the beach into a lively bar or seaside restaurant for a slow intoxicating lunch, or perhaps go shopping for a sarong. It’s a lively beach and is especially fun for those who like to be part of an atmosphere.

These Patong beach pictures show just why it’s one of Phuket’s most popular tourist magnets. You can quietly relax on the beach, having drinks and snacks brought to you by vendors, or wander into Patong town when you’ve had enough of the sun.

Patong boasts lovely white sand and clear, swimmable waters, as well as a picturesque backdrop of palm trees, plus it is long enough that you can wander away from the busy areas and find a quiet spot. Patong does have some high-rise apartments and beachfront resorts, however, although not right along the beach.

Patong is located on the west coast of Phuket about two thirds of the way down the island, with easy access to Phuket Town and the adjacent beaches of Kamala and Karon. Journey time from the airport is about 40 minutes.
