Guide to Paradise Beach, Patong Phuket, Thailand
Paradise Beach is up there with one of the nicest beaches we’ve seen on Phuket over the three times we’ve been to the island and has a chilled vibe.
Surrounded by palm trees, providing much-needed shade, you will be able to spend the day at the beach and not sit in the blazing sun. One of the best things about visiting Paradise Beach is that jet skis are not allowed to come near the beach, ensuring it remains calm and peaceful at all times!
Here is a short video showcasing our experience!
Where is Paradise Beach?
Located around 5km southwest of Patong Beach, it is super easy to get to. If you have a scooter or take a tuk-tuk or taxi, it isn’t a very long journey.
There is a car park available should you make your own way. Google Maps will get you to the right spot easy enough. For detailed instructions on how to get there, this page is quite helpful. From the parking lot, you will be taken down in a large tuk-tuk / bus to the bottom of the hill to the entrance of the beach.
From 1 January 2020, the beach will open at 11 am and is located at 109, Muen-Ngern Road, Patong, Kathu, Phuket 83150, Thailand. You can call them on +66 (0)83 743 9009 or email them at email@example.com.
There is a complimentary shuttle bus that can take you down to the beach.
How much does it cost to get to the beach?
The cost to enter the beach is around 200 baht per person. But that includes all of the below. The beaches are kept incredibly clean and I would say it is worth paying the entry fee.
What to do at Paradise Beach
If you’re wanting to do more than relax, Paradise Beach has plenty on offer. From snorkeling, SUP boarding, kayaking and scuba diving, there is something for everyone. The reef is only 100m from the beach making it a perfect spot to do a spot of diving.
There is a rope you can swing your way into the ocean on full tide – it’s a bit of fun! And if you’re feeling a little athletic, you can always play some beach volleyball.
They do have full moon parties at Paradise Beach as well. From what we’ve been told they are super popular due to the location and ease of getting to from Patong Beach.
