Thai Muang Beach Guide

Everything You Need To Know About Thai Muang Beach

Thai Muang Beach a very large slice of largely undeveloped tropical bliss, just north of Natai Beach and about halfway between Phuket and Khao Lak. Home to a couple of small local villages, a golf course, a sea turtle sanctuary and a national park, it is one of the most natural and quiet beaches in southern Thailand. With its powdery white sands, which stretch well out into the warm, clear sea, it is also among the most attractive.

Thai Muang Beach is mostly undiscovered by tourists, with very few hotels in the area and no jet skis, speedboats, touts and peddlers to disrupt your otherwise ideal escape from the rest of the world. It is very long – roughly 30km, in total, and practically arrow-straight for the majority of it – so finding a patch for yourself is no challenge. With a road running parallel to the sand a few metres inland, it is also easily accessible.
