Bang Tao Beach is a well-known beach due it being one of the longest beaches in Phuket. It is yet another beach that is known to be quite deserted, where tourists choose to visit the beach for its tranquility and peaceful atmosphere. The sea is calm and clear from November to April, and one can expect rougher waves between May and October. It always pays to be more aware of the red flags that can be found on the coastline for safety. While pretty deserted on the northern end of the beach, a few hotels and beach clubs can be found on the southern end, contributing to the livelier atmosphere surrounding Bang Tao Beach. Bang Tao Beach is known to be one of the best family-friendly beaches in Phuket.
The highlights of Bang Tao Beach include activities that are carried out more often during the high season, such as banana boat rides, jet-skiing, waterskiing, and paragliding. Perfect for families and the more adventurous ones, be prepared to be spoilt for choice. Some hotels provide windsurfers and Hobie cats for their guests. Surfing is another activity that can be done on Bang Tao Beach, which will delight those who are into more active sports. This activity can be done in a safer condition in the middle section of the beach, where it is shielded from the swells. Beginners can learn to adapt to smaller waves while the more experienced surfers can opt to go further north along the beach, where bigger waves can be seen due to the exposure to the wind.
