Bang Tao could easily be dubbed the Phuket’s Beverly Hills thanks to a perfect blend of relaxing and luxurious lifestyle. It is a beach city located in the north of Phuket, on the east-north-east side of Surin Beach and Kamala, which is well-known for its calm surroundings. The beach is one of Phuket’s famous destinations for beachgoers with a laid-back vibe that allows you to really sit and chill with the sound of the ocean. You will also find a horse riding service that brings you through a beautiful golf trail and the tranquil sandy beach.
Some indulging activities are also dotted around the area such as Thai massage shops that usually offer Thai massage, foot massage, oil massage and BNS (Back, Neck & Shoulder massage) and spas with several treatments. Gym, yoga classes and health stores serving clean food, raw food, healthy drinks, and organic products can be found in the area as well.
If you love being surrounded by the beach, music, good food, and refreshing drinks, the beach clubs gather everything for you in one place. Celebrate your late morning with some mouthwatering brunch and take a look at the endless ocean view, sip some refreshments while breathing in the salt in the air and continue to dance on the soft white sand with the arousing beats until late in the night with cool DJs and talented musicians.
