Paradise Beach Phuket

UPDATE! Despite the announcement that Paradise Beach entrance would be and remain free, there is now an entrance 100 Baht fee. (and who knows if it will not increase)

Paradise Beach in Phuket is just 4 kilometers from Patong and offers two small sandy bays with very blue sea, powdery sand and cute little boats are gently bobbing in the bay. Yes, it is small, remote and not easy to find if you don’t know but it is becoming increasingly popular. The bay is now famous for hosting Phuket Full Moon Parties.

Paradise beach used to be impossible to find until a concrete road made it easier to reach. It’s suddenly became very popular beach as it is very close to Patong and has a lot to things to offer, bars and restaurants and even those hard to find beach chairs under the trees for 1o0 baht. If it gets too busy for you, walk 100 meters to the left and you will find a surprisingly quiet sandy cove.

The area consists of two tiny bays. The first one where the bars and restaurants are is larger and the beach more sandy. At the end of it, a small concrete path leads to the second beach, surprisingly not busy at all. The path continues uphill to a very small bar with a bit of a view where, then few more steps will take you to an inaccessible rocky bay in the back.

How to get to Paradise Beach:

On your own: From Patong Beach, drive south to the bridge leading to the well-known ‘Amari Phuket‘, and turn left right after the bridge. Then follow for few kilometers until you reach the ‘Marriott Merlin Beach Resort’ on your left and the nice Tri Trang Beach on your right. A sign pointing to ‘Paradise Beach’ a the bottom of the hill will show you to continue further for another 2 or 3 kilometers. The road is quite narrow, but nicely paved which makes it fairly easy (too easy). You will arrive on a large parking which can accommodate about twenty cars and a lot of bikes. From there a shuttle will take you to the beach (again it’s now all free).
