On the other hand, different beaches in Phuket compete with one another to get the attentions of Phuket guests. Karon beach is getting its own share with its quiet and tamer atmosphere than Patong. Its long white sandy beach is an ideal place for those who want few crowds and serene surroundings without missing the exciting nightlife it offers. Kata beach while not exceptionally kind during monsoons is a quiet long beach with powdery white sand. It has several good resorts and bungalow lined row by row along its shores. It’s good for swimming and snorkeling activities. Bangtao beach on the other hand has the most number of luxury resorts and hotels. It offers the ultimate pampering services like golf courses, great spa treatments and thrilling riding experience with its riding club. While Bangtao is loaded with luxury, Kamala is still undeveloped and has that ordinary Thai village atmosphere. But it takes pride with its amazing theme park called Phuket FantaSea. It‘s one Theme park that Phuket visitors should not miss. Located at the bottom of Kamala and Surin is a small but beautiful beach called Laem Singh Beach.
