About Patong Beach
Patong Beach is the largest beach in Phuket.

Patong has something for everyone, where you can rent out beach chairs and just lounge around all day. If you’re looking to do something fun, the beach has a multitude of different options when it comes to water sports. Yet, that’s not all Patong has to offer!
You can’t talk about Phuket’s nightlife and not mention Patong. The district is considered the de facto hub for all the best parties on the island. There are over 100 bars in Patong that are all packed into the area that’s fondly referred to as “Bangla.”
Given the number of places to go in the area, you might find it a little difficult to decide where to go first. To help you out, we’ve chosen a couple of notable spots that you should definitely check out to get the full experience of Phuket’s nightlife.
