Patong Beach

Patong Beach is one of the most popular tourist attraction in Phuket. I would say this place is very commercialise and overcrowded during the peak period.

If you want to play watersports and suntanning. Patong Beach would be an ideal place. Deck Chairs and Umbrellas are provided. Reading a book or taking a stroll on the beach would be great. However if your intention is to settle down at a quiet and crystal clear water beach, I am sorry to say patong is not a good choice. It was because watersports such as parasailing and jet skiing have already polluted the sea.

Water Sports Charges During Peak Season
Parasailing (1 Round): 750 Baht - 800Baht
Banana Boat: Around 300Baht
Jet Ski: Around 1200Baht

**You can try your luck by negotiating the price with them if there are more people playing.

Kindly also take note that the Deck chairs in Phuket are NOT FREE for lying down. Once you sit on their chair, the people will come and collect the money from you. Haha... 130 Baht for 2 chairs with Umbrella.

Overall, I would give Patong Beach 2.5 stars out 5.
