Bang Tao is a city with many contrasts: On the one hand there are many villas and luxurious resorts on the six kilometre long beach, on the other hand Bang Tao is only a few minutes away from Cherng Talay, where many villagers still live their lives just like their ancestors and earn their money through fishing, agriculture and rubber extraction. In the middle of Bangtao Beach is a large area called Laguna Phuket, which is one of the largest resort complexes in Thailand. The northern tip of the beach is still unaffected by development, so visitors can still have the beach to themselves in 2018. Thanks to its beachfront location, Bang Tao is mainly visited by people planning a beach holiday. But there are also a few bars and restaurants. If you book a hotel in Phuket – Bang Tao, offers for children are often included. Find out everything you need to know about Bang Tao, the beach, the leisure facilities and the hotels if you are considering a holiday in this part of Phuket.

The beach of Bang Tao

Bang Tao Beach is known to many Phuket vacationers only by the name of the luxury resort located here. But the second longest beach on the island has so much more to offer than just the Laguna Beach Resort. There’s plenty of space in the extensive idyll and the bathing conditions are ideal in the turquoise blue water. There are also some exceptional beach bars. There are also great beach clubs here, where you can enjoy both the sea view and the exuberant party atmosphere in a relaxed atmosphere. In the background there is a lot of lush greenery, which offers you natural shade on the beach where you can spread your towel. Deck chairs are also available. They are placed by the beach bars and can be rented. Characteristic for the Bang Tao Beach is the salt water lake scenery, which is located in the central beach area in the background. Around this landscape, a group of luxury resorts was built, which is called Laguna Beach. But the access roads to the resorts are private, so it is a little bit difficult to discover the road to the Bang Tao Beach at the beginning. Nevertheless, the Bang Tao Beach is public and offers a lot of variety and relaxation even to visitors who do not live at the Laguna Beach.

Fine sand meets various leisure activities

The sand at the Bang Tao Beach is fine and white. In the background of the beach there are still many areas which are undeveloped. Shadow is provided by palms and trees. The path leading into the water is almost completely free of stones. There are always longer sections where there is little activity, but also areas with many different gastronomic offers: Casual bamboo bars are available as well as elegant beach clubs where DJs play music even during the day. Cold drinks and snacks are therefore always available at Bang Tao Beach. You can also buy souvenirs and clothes at the stalls. Many sections are guarded by lifeguards. A local water sports provider provides variety and offers the possibility to go jet skiing or banana boating. The free-running pigs, which come to the beach from time to time, are definitely the absolute highlight at Bang Tao Beach. Only for surfers and divers it looks rather meagre here, because the appropriate equipment cannot be rented anywhere.

What you can do in Bang Tao

When you visit Bang Tao, there are three main things you can do: Be sure to plan a visit to Anthem Wake Park, relax at Phuket Adventure Mini Golf and play golf at Laguna Phuket Golf Club.

Anthem Wake Park

The Anthem Wake Park is a highlight of the water sports scene on Phuket. It is located in the middle of a leafy, natural area between the Phuket Heroines Monument and the village of Cherngtalay. For wakeboarding, Anthem Wake Park offers three different cable options on the 50,000 square meter lake. Wakeboarding was originally developed in 1959 by Bruno Rixen, a German engineer, but for some time now the sport has been enjoying growing popularity – not only in Thailand. There are over 250 cable parks worldwide and seven of them are located in Thailand alone. The water quality here is excellent. The park is also popular because of the trees, hills and vegetation, with the lake framed on all sides. In addition, the Anthem Wake Park on Phuket is completely environmentally friendly because special pipes are used without carbon emissions. The Anthem Wake Park has something to offer for young and old and always gets the best ratings on the internet. A trip from Bangtao is definitely worthwhile.

Phuket Adventure Mini Golf

For those who prefer to be on land rather than on water, Phuket Adventure Mini Golf in Bangtao is a great alternative for recreation. This is the place for people looking for a unique mini golf experience. The 18-hole miniature version of the classic golf course is surrounded by tropical trees. The price already includes the necessary equipment, but you can also bring your own equipment. The mini golf course is suitable for people of all ages. Especially families with small children, couples and teenagers like to come here. You can not only play mini golf on site, but also dine in the restaurant “Off Course”. From here you can enjoy a great view over the mini golf course. The menu contains typical Thai as well as Western dishes. The homemade pizza is a real insider tip.

Laguna Phuket Golf Club

Laguna Phuket Golf Club was formerly known as Banyan Tree Golf Club. Some time ago, however, the club received a new face in Thailand and was also given a new name. All grass courses were renewed and redesigned. The golf course is well attended because it is extensively equipped.

Parts of the club facilities:

  • clubhouse
  • Pool
  • Golf lessons
  • Bar and snack bar

However, the golf course is also considered comparatively difficult among golfers, which is why it is aimed more at experienced players. The prices for the 18-hole course are around 140 €, while the 9-hole green fee is around 77 €. Clubs and caddies can be rented.
