south end – plenty of people and activity on the beach
The south end of the beach where all 9 beachfront hotels are located is quite busy in the high season, with umbrellas, shops and restaurants crowding the sand. Typical of Thai beaches, there is lots of food and drink available, right on the sand. Stalls sell hot food, cold drinks and all manner of beach toys and clothing. And the restaurants that set up right there on the sand provide cheap, tasty alternatives to the hotels.
Layan Beach – Bang Tao’s quiet north end
The north end, sometimes called Layan Beach, has a couple of beach clubs and a few restaurants over kilometres of sand – but so far, no hotels. In the high season small numbers of people find their way here from the resorts at the south end.
Is Bang Tao Phuket’s most popular family beach?
The calm water and clean, soft sand of Bang Tao make this a great beach for children, and many families come here with young kids. But calm water is normal for all Phuket beaches in the high season, and it is the hotels that specifically cater to families that are the greatest attraction on Bangkok. Here we see the excellent pools and water slide at Arinara Resort. Then Sunwing Resort is exceptionally family-friendly, with swimming pools for children of all ages, and special pricing for children and families.
