Thai Beaches

Beaches in Thailand

Thailand is home to many beautiful beaches - as you would expect with around 3,200 km of coastline lapped by tropical seas. It is little wonder that 'beaches in Thailand' are hugely searches on the internet.

There are three basic areas with coastline:

  1. Thailand Eastern Seaboard beaches which are sheltered in the Gulf of Thailand and include famous areas such as Pattaya - stretching from Bangkok to Cambodia
  2. The Andaman coast - being home to Krabi and Phuket and filtering out at the border with Myanmar or Burma as once was in the North and the top of Malaysia in the south
  3. The Upper Gulf of Thailand - part of the South China Sea - and home to Prachuap Khiri Khan and Chumpon, with the Lower Gulf area lapping the South of Thailand provinces before joining up with Malaysia.

As well as the mainland beaches there are also many beaches on the numerous islands that are sprinkled about the two main seas - so much so that they often block out the true horizon.
