Thailand Beaches and Islands Holidays
With over 2,000 miles of coastline, Thailand’s sun-kissed islands and idyllic beaches are its top attraction, drawing sun-worshippers, scuba divers, rock climbers and sunset cocktail drinkers alike. The soft, white sands, turquoise seas and gentle coastline, backed by palm trees and thick jungle, is the stuff of desert island fiction, and you’re never short of corals to explore and temples to admire. The region’s most popular islands include Krabi, Phuket, Koh Samui and Koh Phi Phi. While these islands are home to the region’s best resorts and hotels, if you’re looking for seclusion and privacy, you might also want to consider Koh Phangan, Koh Lanta and Si Kao. Whatever you choose, Flight Centre can help you make it happen with our range of tailor-made holidays.

Thailand’s Best Beaches and Islands
As no stranger to beautiful stretches of beaches, it can be hard to know where to start in Thailand’s south. In terms of access, the easiest places to fly into are Krabi, Koh Samui and Phuket, which is also where you’ll find the majority of Thailand’s most popular resorts. From these spots, it’s easy to explore the surrounding islands and beaches by boat with notable spots including the island of Koh Lanta – around an hour’s boat ride from Krabi – and Koh Lipe, home to the famously beautiful Pattaya Beach.
