This summer, if you are thinking beaches, think Thailand. We will tell you about the ten best beaches you wouldn’t want to return home from!

Main Beach, Ko Kradan

From the limestone outcrops in the middle of the sea looking like the spine of a dragon to a three-hour kayaking ride covering the entire island, Ko Kradan is as gorgeous as it gets. A beautiful fifty-meter long coral reef running around the two-kilometer long pearly white beach, this is one of the best places to go snorkeling!

Chaweng, Koh Samui

One of the busiest beaches in Thailand, Koi Samui beauty is not affected by the massive crowd during tourist seasons. The tall palms forming an arc over the golden sandy line is a treat for the eyes, especially during a sunrise!

Maya Bay, Koh Phi Phi Ley

One of the best backpacking destinations, Maya Bay is nestled in the lap of surrounding cliffs which makes for an almost unbeatable visual treat. Housing a national park, this beauty also made for the iconic locations of Leonardo Di Caprio’s ‘The Beach’!

Railay Beach (west), Krabi

Want to go rock-climbing on a beach? Head straight to the Railey Beach, surrounded by limestone cliffs. The amazing feeling of being isolated from the world follows you around in the locale, which makes this one of the best places for your long-deserved break!

Kata Beach, Phuket

Another great place to rejuvenate is the Kata Beach, located well away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket. One of the best places to surf in the country, you can spend hours lying under one of the palm trees staring at the skyline.

Haad Rin, Koh Pha Ngan

Haad Rin is a stunner, being located on a peninsula which enables you to catch some of the gorgeous sunrise an sunsets on the beach. Not to forget, the very popular Moon Light Parties are held so you know where your next party destination is too!

Hat Pramong, Ko Lipe

Also known as the Sunset Beach, make sure you catch one of the life-changing sunset views here. One of the few beaches not marred by resorts and high-rise hotels, this is also a great place to stay for all those local indulges.

Sairee Beach, Koh Tao

A haven for divers, Sairee makes for great scenery with islands dotting the horizon. Sairee is another one of the reclusive beaches and has some awesome ferry trips to the b=nearby islands.

Koh Libong, Trang

One of the most unexplored beaches, Trang can be explored in a ferry – a trip you won’t forget in a long, long time!  This is also one off the best beaches to catch a glimpse of some charming aquatic life, including the endangered dugongs.

Koh Nang Yuan, Surat Thani Province

Another destination for divers, Koh Nang Yuan has the awesome Nang Yuan Diving Resort which plans unbeatable dicing excursions. You can even indulge in a fifteen-minute walk to the highest point on the island, a jaw-dropper of a locale!
