Best Party Beaches in Thailand
Beach parties on Phuket Island
One of the most popular party beaches in Thailand is situated on the west coast of Phuket Island and it is known as Patong. This beach provides a fantastic atmosphere and the beach itself is beautiful.
Even though the food, drinks and accommodation might be a little bit more expensive compared to other places in Thailand, Phuket Island, and Patong Beach are definitely worth visiting.
It is also good to point out that Patong Beach has some great surfing points. The beach is filled with different kinds of bars that serve literally any type of alcohol. Of course, you can also try non-alcoholic cocktails too.
Koh Phangan is a very small island, but it is the home of the largest beach party in Thailand, known as the Full Moon party. And even when it’s not the Full Moon Party, Koh Phangan is one of the best party beaches in Thailand.
Haad Rin beach on Phangan island throws the party once a month and it is the best idea to visit it during the high season to get the full effect of the crowds. There are cases when more than 30, 000 people are partying on this beach at once.
In order to reach Koh Phangan, you’ll have to use a ferry from Koh Samui because this small island doesn’t have an airport.
Pattaya is one of the largest cities in Thailand and also one of the most popular beach resorts in Asia. It is situated in the Gulf of Thailand, just 62 miles south-east of the capital city of Bangkok (best to travel by bus from Bangkok to Pattaya Town).
Let’s be clear, Pattaya Beach may not be the most attractive beach in Thailand, but the fact is that this place has been known for its partying for many decades and it’s obvious that the bars and nightclubs located here know how to create a great atmosphere.
The best time to visit this beach is during the night. Those who enjoy eating, drinking and the company of attractive women will love Pattaya Beach.
Another thing that makes Pattaya Beach attractive is the low prices of drinks and food. In addition, visitors can choose from dozens of clubs, bars, and pubs.
Koh Samui is home to Chaweng Beach. It’s easy to reach this destination because Koh Samui has a modern airport (search for flights). Chaweng Beach is situated on the east part of Koh Samui and this is also the longest beach.
The beach is very nice and the parties are great, but if you’re planning to go there be prepared to spend a little bit more money compared to other Thai destinations.
