Relax and dream on fantastic beaches
The coastline of Thailand is well known for its beaches and there are several seaside resorts where you can enjoy an idyllic seaside getaway.
Just off the sandy coastline of Krabi are around 200 small islands to explore with your loved one, all with a backdrop of lush mangrove swamps filled with wildlife. One of these islands, Phi Phi Lay Island, was the stunning film location for The Beach starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
There are over 20 kilometres of sandy stretches in Khao Lak, so there’s plenty of room to find your own quiet niche. There’s coral reefs that you and your partner can snorkel and scuba dive around and even a stunning tropical forest to explore just inland.
The main beach in Phuket is Patong Beach where there’s a lively mix of families, groups of friends and informal events such as Thai boxing matches and beach parties. You can take boat rides out to the nearby Phi Phi islands and spot the local sea life, swim or scuba dive.
