17 Jan Paradise Beach
After a day tour of Phi Phi Island, Maya Bay, Bamboo Island (post coming soon) where we literally experienced some of the most amazing beaches in Thailand, and dare I say the world, we couldn’t fathom going back to Patong Beach’s over-crowded and not so blue water, so we searched for other alternatives and found Paradise Beach. Located in the Kathu district, a few kilometers (but not walking distance) away from Patong Beach this compact beach offers a slightly more private experience (because you pay to gain access) than Patong Beach.
The water is not as blue and clear as the water on Bamboo Island and there is some litter here and there on the beach; but it is so much better than being at Patong Beach because of the access control. With views of Patong, you feel like you could chill out there forever; unbothered and happy.
