Kata Beach, Phuket
Unlike the rough waters of Phuket, this beach is well protected from the uncertainties of the waves. The waters of Kata are actually calm, making this one of the most kid-friendly Thailand beaches.

Phi Phi Don Beach, Koh Phi Phi
This is an extremely happening beach, popular with the tourists. However, it has still managed to maintain the untouched charm, unlike most other touristy Thailand beaches. The clear blue waters satisfy the nature lover in you without you feeling cut off from the world.
Thongtakian Beach, Koh Samui
Between Lamai and Chaweng, Thongtakian Beach or Silver Beach is a spectacular yet quaint location. Despite the isolated location of the beach, the proximity to the larger towns makes nightlife and the top gastro pubs easily accessible.
There is no better place to experience the colours and the sun of Thailand than Patong.
