Beach description

Paradise Beach in Phuket itself is small, but the nature has divided it with a stone cliff into two more small coves. Unlike the neighboring Freedom beach, there are stones under water here, and in the sand on the shore there are fragments of shells and corals.

Although it should be noted that the sand on the Paradise is differentover the entire length. Closer to the water is the part that constantly covers the tides - yellow and with impurities. But the strip of sand, which never flooded, consists of fine and white sand.

The atmosphere here is also completely different. If on Fridome, with its some inaccessibility and purely Thai restaurant, there is a sense of authenticity and jungle, then Paradise is quite a European place. The whole beach is occupied by a restaurant that looks very modern and much prettier, not a tie-style at all.

Also, as I understand it, there are regular parties here, including parties under the Pangan Full Moon Party. At the time of my visiting the party was not, but on the beach was set the stage on which the DJ worked and played modern music.

Shower and toilet are free, all othersamenities, including food and drinks (which are forbidden to bring to the beach) - require additional costs. It is impossible to carry from the word "in general", they charm no worse than at the airport. Everything that you take away will be returned after you leave.

On Paradise Beach you can meet a local pet, black Labrador Singto - a lazy, loved and petted dog.

Sunset, depth and waves

As I wrote above, the beach is more suitable forparties, rather than swimming (swim better at high tide). The bottom of Paradise is sandy-stony, the water is clear, you can see fish swimming in shallow water, and the bottom is covered with corals. People periodically come out of the water with cuts, the good thing is that there is even a doctor on duty at the beach. During low tide, you can clearly see all the good that awaits you under water.

The beach at low tide becomes practically noncupola, because in the puddle you will not break down, and to the depth you will walk for a long time knee-deep in water and on corals. Plus, a coral reef stretched off the coast. And also, due to the location of the bay, in the second half of the day there will be practically no sun. That is, about five in the evening, the beach is completely immersed in the shadow.

Sun beds and shade

Natural shade of rare trees in the firsthalf of the day covers the beach partially, but it is not enough for all, so tourists rest mostly on sunbeds under umbrellas. Sun beds plastic, ordinary, offered to tourists for 100 baht. If you want to rent a double chaise lounge with a thick mattress - it will already cost 500 baht.

In case anyone is interested in reading about other places, I have a short overview of all Phuket beacheswill help you decide on the choice of the beach.

The width of the beach at low tide is impressive and depressing at the same time. Walking is good, swimming is bad.

Infrastructure

Infrastructure on Paradise Beach is presentedone civilian restaurant, along with the stage, and there are several shops that belong to the same owners - in fact, all this is a one-stop shop for beach holidays. There are no hotels or any other accommodation here.

Prices in the restaurant are high: Tayfud from 300 baht, sandwiches of 250, shake pineapple - 120 baht. I would say, quite an expensive place. In addition to food, in the restaurant you can ask for sun beds, umbrellas, kayak for hire, a mask for snorkeling or SUP.

We accept cards, but with a five percentwrapping, all prices are about one and a half times higher than those on Patong. I come here not for the first time and I want to note that the place is gradually becoming more and more urbanized.

On that day, when I arrived in 2017, as II learned from the Thais, there was a change of land owner, so the conditions on the beach changed (previously there was free admission, 100 baht were made). Perhaps there will be some other changes, I will be glad to your comments if you will be here after me and tell you what's new with the prices.

Houses and hotels on the beach

Directly on the beach there is no housing, but you can look out for yourself near the options.

Phuket hotels>

Be sure to check for discounts orspecial offers on excellent Roomguru service. It will quickly and simply show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. In the same Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com, which are much cheaper than in the same hotels in the Booking.com system.

But in general, it's better to live in Patong, where there is much more choice of hotels. If you want to book a hotel in advance or search for accommodation on other beaches, I have selection of hotels in Phuket with a good rating and reviews.

How to find the beach

Paradise Beach, unlike Freedom, is located inthe end of a good road, so it makes little sense to spend money on a taxi-boat - you can easily get here by scooter or car. To do this, follow the road that runs along the coast.

It is more convenient to start your way from the southern part of Patong towards Karon, but not to go to the main road, but to go to the road that follows the coast, it passes by Tri Trang beachrises uphill, descends, and there you will see a big package with yellow buses on which a shuttle-bus is written (by the way, they run around Patong every 30 minutes).

Here you have to park the bike, and then you will be taken free shuttle down to the beach, and just then on this shuttle to the parking you get back, they are constantly plying.

From parking to the beach to go a couple of minutes, but theresteep descent and better to overcome it on the bus. Downstairs, right next to the beach and the restaurant, I noticed that there also was parking with bikes. Apparently those who are bolder, go themselves to the bitter end.

You can also get on the water, renting a boat on Patong.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
