Bang Tao Beach

Bang Tao Beach in Phuket, ThailandBang Tao is a large open bay with one of Phuket's longest beaches. It is a 8 km long sweeping crescent shaped bay with a gentle slope and absolutely pure white sand and is fringed with rows of caesarian trees.

The constant but gentle breeze on this bay has made Bangtao Beach very popular with windsurfers and it plays host to several international competitions each year.

It was once used for tin mining, but has since been developed into a luxury resort. The Laguna complex, a massive five-hotel development with golf course, occupies most of it.

Bang Tao Beach in Phuket, ThailandThere are, however, accommodations available outside Laguna at the bay's south end. Dry season swimming is excellent, and at the bay's north end is a smaller bay, almost completely enclosed, at the mouth of which is some fine coral.

Plenty of places to eat, tour companies, and other tourist facilities available either at Laguna or in the nearby town of Cherng Talay.

Located off Sri Suntorn Rd. in Cherng Talay for access to Laguna; the south end of the bay may be approached by taking the road north from Surin Beach.

To get to the far north end from Sri Suntorn Rd take the road leading to Laguna, but do not enter, continue on to the town of Bandon where there is an intersection of asphalted roads, and take the one leading west toward the sea.

This road leads also to Nai Ton Bay and makes a very pleasant drive. Along the way are some small bays with good swimming and no development.
