Choosing the best vacation rental in Phuket involves considering the best location for the main attraction of this island – beaches. With so many beaches to choose from, it’s not easy to decide on just one. Different people like different things. Some sunseekers want to be in the main tourist areas where all the services and facilities are readily available, while others prefer a more tranquil atmosphere. To help you decide on your ideal holiday rental, we’ve chosen 3 of our favorite beaches in Phuket to share with you, where you can have all of the above and more.
The most popular Phuket beaches are along the west coast, which is the perfect place to catch the tropical sunset.
Kamala is a pristine beach in the middle of the west coast between the more heavily-populated Bang Tao Beach and Patong Beach. Kamala is home to the highly-renowned Café del Mar Beach Club, an international-standard, Ibiza-branded entertainment venue where you can chill, eat, and drink by day or night. Phuket FantaSea Theme Park, also on Kamala Beach, is great for entertaining the kids while taking in some Thai mythology and legends.
Perfect for couples and families, this fabulous 2-bedroom pool penthouse in Kamala has its own private roof terrace, pool, and sundeck with mountain views, all within easy reach of Kamala Beach. This spacious penthouse boasts modern interiors and full services and facilities for a comfortable stay.
Kata is actually a pair of beaches (the main Kata Beach and Kata Noi (“Little Kata”), which is smaller) on the west side between Patong Beach and Nai Harn Beach. It is arguably the most popular beach after Patong and is a firm family favorite. The white sand and ethereal beauty of the blue water here are the main attractions. There are also a lot of world-standard restaurants, both Western-style and Thai, shopping options, and great entertainment venues, for those who enjoy Phuket nightlife. For those who like peaceful beaches, the smaller, quieter Kata Noi is ideal.
If you’re considering staying in Kata, this 1-bedroom apartment is ideal for singles and couples and is conveniently close to Kata Beach. It offers sea views and regular shuttle buses to nearby beaches and restaurants, and shopping areas.
Nai Harn Beach
Nai Harn is a picturesque beach surrounded by small islands and lush greenery. It is the southernmost beach on the western side of Phuket next to Promthep Cape, which is one of the premier spots to take in the sunset. Beyond the line of trees at Nai Harn Beach lies soft, white sand and inviting blue water.
One of our exclusive rentals in Nai Harn is this luxurious pool-access villa with 3 bedrooms in a secure, gated community. It’s a spacious, family-sized property that offers a safe sanctuary from which to explore Nai Harn Beach and beyond. From here, a short journey takes you to Promthep Cape, a viewpoint at the southernmost point of Phuket from which you can enjoy unparalleled sunsets.
We hope you will get to see the beauty of these 3 Phuket beaches with your own eyes, feel the sun and soft sand on your skin, and swim in the tropical blue water. Be warned: You may not want to leave!
