Bang Tao Beach is the longest beach of Phuket Island. It is quiet and located on foothill. Larch trees fringe the beach. Grain of sand is not fine but is very white. It has since been developed into five luxury resorts, therefore a popular beach for foreign tourist. The tide is out, it is not suitable for bathing in the sea because of strong wave. The north wind of the beach is some fine coral. This is a good location for scuba diving.
At the middle of the beach are five luxuries hotels set around six picturesque lagoons. With facilities including an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, spa, water park and one of Asia's biggest swimming pool.
This is the best part of the very long Bang Tao Beach with several restaurants on the beach. The laguna area is mostly very clean, unlike some other parts of the beach. A visit to Bang Tao Beach should include the laguna area!
The northern end of the beach is very quiet with a small restaurant on the beach. Together with a few sunbeds this is a good spot to get away from the crowd so long you don't mind that only the beach along the restaurant is cleaned.
Andaman Seaview Resort is located a mere 100 meters from the beach.
