It may come as a surprise, but despite the fact that this beautiful country at the center of the Indochinese peninsula welcomes around sixteen million foreigners each year, it manages to keep its unique character and natural beauty. Even though Thailand is such a popular destination, you will find that it has not lost its own rich heritage. There are high-rise buildings and impressive neon lights in the tourist centers, but the endless beaches of Thailand hold such wild, virgin beauty that will make you want to stay there forever.
Why Visit The Beautiful Beaches Of Thailand
Each of the beaches on our list has its own unique character, but all of them are simply wonderful tropical miracles. Let’s have a closer look at them.
Nai Harn Beach
Once a well-kept secret of the locals, this small but gorgeous beach has only recently been discovered by tourists. With only a few hotels, restaurants and shops nearby, it is still quiet enough for the visitors to enjoy themselves soaking up the sun, but also have a cocktail when the sun goes down at one of the local restaurants sitting above the beach. For the more adventurous visitors, the Ya Nui, a sandy cove further south, lends itself to snorkeling and diving activities.
Phra Nang Cave Beach
This cave on the east side of the Railay Bay is known for its stalactites and stalagmites. Since ancient times, Phra Nang (Princess) Cave has been a place of worship for fishermen, who believe the cave to be the home of a mythical sea princess. For the thrill-seekers, the rocks offer a great chance to climb. For the beach lovers, the white sandy beach and the clear green and blue waters make this a gem of a place. If you visit during the sunset, make sure to have your cameras at the ready for some magnificent views.
Thong Nai Pan Noi Beach
This fantastic soft white sand beach near Koh Phangan is ideal for the traveler seeking to relax and become one with nature. Thong Nai Pan Noi is a calm beach with amazing waters and a calm refreshing breeze throughout the year. You can also enjoy a relaxing massage or use the pools in the nearby hotels for free. A stay on the island is highly recommended, as the sunsets here are just unmissable. If you are looking for a romantic getaway in Thailand, this is the place for you.
