Patong beach is arguably the most ‘western’ beach in Phuket and as such is a magnet for tourists of all ages.
Patong is a densley populated tourist strip. The hustle and bustle of Patong streets provide a backdrop for the golden sands. Water sports, parasols, sun loungers, beach volleyball are all found here. Older kids will love the availability of water sports whilst smaller children will be pleased to discover the children’s playground located at the northern end of the beach. The great thing about Patong beach is that even the fussiest children will be happy at lunch time given the wide choice of restaurants (yes even Mcdonalds). Souvenior shopping is also a popular pastime when the heat of the beach becomes to much. Do also check out Jung Ceylon, Patongs very own international style shopping mall.
