Beach Bang Tao (Bang Thao, Bang Tao, also Laguna Beach) in Phuket is on the West coast in the Central part of the island (Bang Tao on the island map). This is a very long beach, with a length of almost 8 kilometers.

Despite all the advantages of the beach, in our view Bang Tao beach – not the best place for the average tourist to settle for the entire rest period. It is mostly expensive resort with expensive hotels and high prices for all services, so that budget tourists here, especially not to turn around.

Bang Tao can be divided into a Northern and a southern part:

The Northern part of Bang Tao beach (that one closer to the airport) predominantly undeveloped, no hotels or infrastructure. The only places right on the beach, here you can find cafes, and beyond the beach is only the road and nothing else. But tourists are almost never happens, and it's a great place to retire. However, in the Northern part of the beach and some worse than in the South, namely, a narrow strip of sand (at high tide in some places is only a few meters of sand). The beach is deserted, not only from tourists but also from sunbeds and entertainment. Sunbeds can only be found near the rare cafes.

The southern part (that one is closer to Patong beach) infrastructure is very different from the North. Here are all the hotels, shops and other infrastructure. However, one should not expect from the southern part of the same environment, as in a conventional resort areas. Here all differently. On the streets there are many shops and stalls, vendors and entertainment, travel agencies and rental offices, cafes and cheap eateries. Everything is clean, rich, civilized, and sterile. Something similar to the usual noisy and developed tourist areas begins only in the extreme South of the district along the main road, and gradually goes to the beach in Surin. The beach in the South is also much more developed. There are a lot of sunbeds, tourists, entertainment.

Now on the beach of Bang Tao beach. Although the slope of the bottom varies all over the beach, as a whole it normal and uniform, the bottom is flat, you can already swim ten metres from the shore. The bottom almost everywhere is clean, without stones. The sand is white, very clean. Palm is almost there, mostly along the waterfront coniferous trees casuarinaceae. The problems can create strong waves, especially during low season, but in the morning, usually the sea is calm.

To get to Bang Tao beach, local public transport does not work, there is only taxi or rented transport. Despite the fact that the area is expensive, the taxi drivers overcharge like on the trip here and here. The trip from the airport or Patong beach by taxi will cost from 600 baht (see currency of Thailand, the exchange rate), and with the ability to negotiate. Local taxi songthaews run to the beaches of Surin and Kamala beach for 50 baht.

Hotels in Bang Tao beachunlike most other beaches in Phuket, located on the first line, i.e. go straight to the water. Hence the high prices. Almost all the hotels here are great, with their territory and price. You can settle from $ 100 per night, and if I'm lucky. There are few places where you can stop at a price below $ 100, but they need to look away from the shore. The bulk of hotels are concentrated in the southern part of Bang Tao, i.e. closer to Surin beach, while the North is almost nothing. Here in the South, the Muslim village it is possible to rent a house or room long term from 7000 baht a month for the 15000 house.

Summing up about the beaches of Bang Tao. Beach Bang Tao is a wonderful place, but afford not for every tourist. Hotels are expensive, with its territory and on the first line. At the same time, no one restricts access to the private beach guests from other beaches, and therefore the Northern part of Bang Tao beach is a great place to escape to a deserted secluded beach during the day with other parts of Phuket.
