Bang Tao Beach Phuket is one awesome beach and when you arrive you will know what I mean, the beach is huge and when you arrive, the view is one of the best in Phuket. If you dont know where Bang Tao beach is, the beach is located north of Surin beach, right behind this beach stands Laguna Phuket which has numerous 5 star resorts inside.
One of my all time favorite swim routes is located right here at Bang Tao, there is an entry point down on the south end and my exit point is about center beach; whole swim is about 2 kilometers and I try to come up here from my home in Kata beach to do this excellent swim.
When you arrive on the beach you will also notice plenty of seaside dining areas, take your pick, each one of them are nice to eat at and all of them have a great view of the beautiful Andaman Sea. I love to come up to Bang Tao and often just never seem to get enough of this location, its just soooo beautiful, so make sure you plan a few days at this wonderful beach; take pictures, dine at one of the many restaurants, enjoy the water, the place is incredible.
