We spent the last four days of our time in Thailand enjoying the beach life in and around Phuket. It was the first time I’ve ever seen or experienced a tropical beach, and it was brilliant. I really felt like I could just relax and unwind for the first time in a long while. The more remote beaches only accessible by boat were undoubtedly a highlight.
On our second day we did a day trip with Phuket Sail Tours which included some time around the islands of Krabi. This beach was our final stop before heading back to Phuket. When we arrived it was quite busy with four or five long-tail boats populating the shore. But as the afternoon went on other people left and eventually it was pretty empty. Bliss!
We did some snorkelling in the shallow waters and had a bit of time to lay down and enjoy the tranquility. I have to say that in the past I have turned my nose up at beach holidays as boring and unadventurous. But this trip has completely changed my mind!
Do you enjoy a good beach holiday? Have you ever visited any of the Thai islands? What’s the best beach you’ve ever laid eyes on?
