25 Best Beaches In Thailand

Travelers around the world flock to Thailand for the beaches that it offers, there are over 2,000 miles of coastline and 8,000 islands to choose from with many have luxurious white sand, endearing warm water and beautiful scenery.

Some islands seem to have many beaches that have made it onto the top 25 such as Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, and other locations not so many. With so many to choose from it is all a matter of taste so I have gone with the ones that I like the most.

Railay Beach, Krabi

Railay Beach in Krabi is surrounded by the Andaman Sea and accessible only by boat, the beach is framed by limestone cliffs that completely cut this section of land off from the world. The beach itself is relaxed and peaceful, not too many tourists come here as you cannot drive to the beach, instead you need to rent a long tail boat and sail here with a guide who will drop you off. There are a few places to stay the night meaning you can relax all day on the beautiful white sands and then relax all evening in a peaceful bar.
