Are you planning a holiday to Phuket and craving for a quiet beach getaway? If so, then here’s why Layan Beach is the kind of place you will love to visit!
Planning Your Visit
This idyllic stretch of shore can be found on Phuket’s west coast and is around 4 km from Bangtao and 14.4 km from Phuket Airport. While you can plan an excursion here, to truly experience the charm of this beach look to stay at properties such as Anantara Layan Phuket Resort located along the shore.
Set amidst a picturesque bay, Layan Beach is relatively less crowded than some of its other beach “siblings” on the island! Those staying at luxury hotels Phuket has to offer in and around this shore can look forward to spending their days lazing in the sand, soaking up the sun or swimming in the Andaman Sea.
When it comes to water sports here, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking are ideal and provide a cardio workout, while diving offers adventures in the deep. Some resorts even offer Schiller water bikes so you can peddle your way across the water and squid fishing where you get a chance to catch your dinner!
If you can tear yourself away from the beach you can look forward to more discoveries; embark on a sunset cruise on a traditional Chinese junk, head off on a longtail boat tour and enjoy some island hopping places like the Similan Islands and snorkel to your heart’s content.
