Underrated Beaches of Thailand
Are you yearning for a crowd-free beach experience in Thailand? Then avoid the famed beaches in Phuket and Krabi and head to one or more of these untouched sandy shores.
Hua Hin’s undiscovered gem
Located approximately 2.5 hours from Bangkok, Hua Hin Beach is a 5km pristine white sandy shore fringed by crystal blue waters. If you are based in a service apartment in Bangkok, the likes of Maitria Rama 9 Residence, then consider making this a one-day excursion given its close proximity.
Hidden beaches around Phuket
Hidden within Phuket’s surroundings are gems such as Nai Harn Beach and Mai Khao Beach. Mai Khao is a long, tranquil stretch of cloudy-white beach located northwest of Phuket. It is shadowed by the Sirinat National Park. Nai Harn Beach, nestled south of Phuket, is yet another undisturbed stretch of beach ideal for relaxation.
Unfamed beaches near Krabi
Fancy a secluded beach getaway? Then head to either Railay Beach, Koh Lanta or Koh Ngai near Krabi. Accessible by boat, Railay Beach features towering limestone rocks, jungle/cave adventures, and a rustic, soothing shore. Koh Lanta, a less-frequented island near Krabi, boasts a multitude of pearl-white sandy beaches. Off Koh Lanta is the island of Koh Ngai, perfect for snorkelling and nature hikes.
Magical Koh Kood
Boasting picturesque shores akin to the Maldives, Koh Kood on Thailand’s east coast is an undiscovered paradise. Explore the island’s beauty through its scenic waterfalls, exciting hiking trails and unspoilt beaches.
