The Best Thai Beaches

April 23, 2013 by Flight Centre UK

We thought we’d share some stunning Thai beaches to get you in the mood and give you some inspiration for a trip to Thailand.

Thailand is famous for it’s numerous blissful beaches of the white sand and turquoise water variety. With so many to choose from it’s hard to single out just one as the best. Here are some pictures of our favourite bays. (Warning: these pictures will inspire immediate Thailand holiday plans!) 

Railay Beach, Krabi

Railay beach in Krabi Thailand

A short long tail boat ride from Ao Nang in Krabi is this craggy climbers heaven. Dramatic limestone formations enclose flawless bays. Bliss!

Maya Bay, Ko Phi Phi Leh

Maya bay lagoon, Phi Phi island

The perfect beach made famous for playing the perfect beach in the film ‘The Beach’! Now a backpackers mecca try to catch one of the first taxi boats out of Phi Phi Don in the morning to avoid the tourist crowds.

Ko Lanta

Ko Lanta

Only an hour and a half away on a boat from Ko Phi Phi, yet a million miles away in terms of tourist numbers and atmosphere, is serene and relaxed Ko Lanta. Time your visit right and you could have this Marine National Park almost all to yourself.

Ko Tao

Ko Tao

 One of the best and cheapest places to learn to dive in Thailand, and it’s quite pretty too!

Ko Phan-Ngan

Ko Phang Nan

Next door to Ko Tao lives Ko Pha-Ngan an island famous for Full Moon beach parties. Away from the hustle and bustle of Hat Rin where the parties are held can be found long stretches of unoccupied sand and shallow waters. This photo was taken at Ban Tai.

Koh Samui

Ko Samui is the third largest island in Thailand but has retained that island paradise feel. This photo was taken at the southern part of Chaweng Beach.

Koh Nang Yuan

Koh Nang Yuan, Koh Tao, Thailand

Just 15 minutes from Koh Tao, Koh Nang Yuan is the perfect place to get away from it all. The tiny island is surprisingly quiet and a great place for snorkelling and scuba diving in the pristine and calm waters.
