Why at Bangtao and Layan life is a beach?
Located in the middle of the Northern part of the island, Bangtao and Layan beach are dominated by the Laguna Phuket complex which is right in the middle of this 6 km curved stretch of white sand beach that is so long and wide that it is never overcrowded.
Bangtao and Layan area have everything you need for a perfect holiday including a multitude of luxury hotels, a spectacular eighteen hole golf course, elephant trekking, Hobie cat sailing, horseback riding, National Park and for the up-and-coming golfers, a new green-grass mini golf.
Away from the tourist attractions, at the southern end of the beach, you will see local villagers who still make a living in their traditional trades of fishing, farming and rubber tapping.
As you walk north along the beach you will see many beachfront shops where you can stop and have a meal or just grab a drink and continue on your way.
As you reach the northern end of the bay there is less development and you might find that you have the beach all to yourself. Of course there is always a local along the way that can offer you a cold drink, ice cream or a relaxing beach massage. The beach is very wide open and natural looking now that they have very limited areas where they can clutter the sand with beach chairs and umbrellas, so be like the locals and find your shaded spot under the towering trees that line the back of the beach.
