3 Thailand Beaches That You Just Shouldn’t Miss

Everyone loves Thailand beaches.  The question that everyone has when booking their holidays to Thailand is which ones they should visit.  Well, I have found three stunning Thailand beaches that not only will make you feel like you have found Paradise, but also aren’t crowded with hordes of people.  These beaches will make you feel like you have truly escaped.

My Favorite Thailand Beaches

Thailand beaches, Koh Lipe,

1.  Sunrise Beach, Koh Lipe

Koh Lipe isn’t the easiest island in Thailand to get to, but it is worth the journey. This is an island that isn’t overrun by tourists. In fact, there isn’t even a 7-11. Sunrise Beach was by far my favorite Thailand beach.  I stayed at the Castaway Resort and loved lazing in my hammock just steps from the water.  My bed was on the second floor of the bungalow and watching the sunrise from bed was the perfect start to the mornings.  This beach has clear, calm waters, great snorkeling, and was the first beach I actually cried at having to leave.

Railay Beach, Thailand Beaches,

2.  West Railay Beach, Krabi

Railay Beach was absolutely stunning with its towering cliffs, emerald-green water, and relaxed atmosphere.  I loved watching all the rock climbers climb the limestone cliffs.  You can also hike to a beautiful hidden lagoon from this beach that is just pure magic. Being on the Andaman Sea, the water is warm and the sand is fine and soft.

Haad Tien Beach, Thailand beaches,

3.  Haad Tien Bay, Koh Pha Ngan

Haad  Tien Bay is the perfect picture of tranquility.  I spent entire days here just staring at the sea and listening to myself breathe.  While the sand isn’t the softest, the peace you feel here is the reason to go.  This is also where the Sanctuary Resort is located, and the food in the restaurant that overlooks the bay is some of the best in Thailand.  Don’t miss the delicious green smoothies or the smiles of the people who work here.
