Bang Tao is located north of Surin, on Phuket's west coast. Here visitors will enjoy one of the most tranquil and unspoiled beaches on the west coast of Phuket. It is just an hour’s flight from Bangkok
. Bangtao is a study in contrasts, with the luxurious vacation rentals
and condo rentals along its 6km (4 mile) stretch of beach
, just a few minutes away from the town of Cherng Talay. Here many villagers still make their living as their ancestors did by fishing, farming and rubber tapping. The northern tip of the beach, so far untouched by development, is still an area where visitors might find that they have the beach to themselves.
Accommodations are fairly well spaced out and you're likely to experience peace and tranquility. If you like accommodations
that feel like a hideaway, then Bang Tao is for you. Possibly due to the fact that there's no 'Beach Road', this beach is used almost exclusively by guests of the hotels here. From November to April the sea is flat, calm and clear. The atmosphere is positively sleepy here, and a perfect place to come to leave everything behind and do nothing more taxing than read a book from the privacy of your own 'piece of paradise' at your vacation rental.
North of Surin, on Phuket's west coast, Bang Tao offers a long stretch of duvet soft, white sand beach where you will find several of the island's best vacation rentals
. The area has been carefully developed with no high rise buildings and lots of landscaping. Bang Tao is also home to some of the island's best antiques and artifact shops, local low key restaurants and water sports areas in close proximity to your vacation rental. Guests at local lodging have the opportunity to use a huge range of indoor and outdoor facilities plus fine dining and, there's even a golf course nearby.
