Patong beach is one of the most popular beach in the island, full of life all the time it's also at the end of the most popular street in Patong,
The beach is also great for water sports!

Patong is the most famous beach on Phuket because of its Pary and prostitution. If you see it once, it will be enough.

Your average beach - nice, but. Nothing particularly special. It's clean and warm which is par for course; but expectations are higher if you make it all the way to Thailand. Neighboring islands and shore fronts have nicer waters

Main beach of the island. It's where all the shops are. Though if you want a more quiet place I suggest going further south

Paying tries to be all things to all people, but fails on a number of fronts. It's sex road is notorious, the beach is a little shody, but there is plenty of hotel choice and the food choice is excellent.

We stayed right next to Patong Beach our first time to Phuket, so of course we had to check it out. It's very touristy with people trying to sell you stuff constantly. We ended up just walking around because it was too crowded and we didn't feel comfortable leaving our belongings on the beach. I'd go elsewhere if you're looking for a nice beach.

Eh...we stayed here one night and moved down to Kata beach for the remainder of our trip. I found Patong beach too touristy w/ a very obvious nightlife ....wasn't our scene when we were looking for a chill beach town to hang around.

I've heard very mixed things about Phuket and especially patong beach. I heard its very touristy, very seedy, and also very fun. It's definitely all of those things, especially seedy. But it's right in the middle of all the action and if you like to party you definitely need to check out bangla road. Not the nicest beach but it's right in the middle of everything so very easy to get around to other beaches if u want a nicer beach during the day.

Patong's Bangla Road is one part cabaret, one part circus and all around big time debauchery. The go-go bars, massage parlors, discos, cover bands, bar girls and ladyboys will make your head spin so fast you'll think you got hit with a roundhouse kick from a Muay Thai fighter. The roads around this area close when the sun goes down and the nightlife doesn't let up till the sun comes back up again.

This is a very touristy beach, but still nice nonetheless. At least you know there will be plenty of activity going on! You can find a bunch of restaurants, spas, and bars for the full range of experiences. They also have opportunities to catch the wind and parasail from land. If you like critters, you can dig around and find some clams and other fun sea creatures!

Gosh, just aboutn anythng goes here. It is a lovely beach away from the go-go bars though, with wind surfing, paragliding, fire balloons and fireworks. A great escape.

I don't normally go to this part of Phuket when I am on the island - it is the most crowded part of Phuket.

A couple of drinks and watch the sunset..cant go wrong! and Bungla road is just a couple minutes walk, party party party, not for the faint harted. Bungla road, Patong is defenitely the party district of Phuket.
