Bang Tao Beach, situated on Phuket’s west coast between the airport and Patong Beach, is renowned for its extensive shoreline and has become a haven for some of the island’s most opulent resorts. The Bang Tao area is dominated by the expansive Laguna Phuket complex, housing five luxury hotels and an 18-hole golf course. Nevertheless, tranquil spots along the beach with clear waters and pristine white sand are easily accessible. The southern end of the beach is more developed and home to most accommodations, while the northern end offers a quieter escape. Nearby, there are shops, restaurants, and bars, both around the entrance to Laguna Phuket and within the resort complex.
