Layan Beach

Layan Beach lies at the northern end of Bangtao Beach on the west coast of Phuket. This quiet little area is off the beaten tourist trail and consequently a very peaceful and tranquil spot. There is a friendly little restaurant offering reasonably priced Thai and international dishes. Traditional Thai massages are available along the beach and long-tail boats can be hired to explore the surrounding beaches and islands.

Layan Beach overlooks the large uninhabited island of Koh Kala, only metres away from the shore that is accessible when the tide is low – but be cautious of the rising tide or you might be stuck on your own private island.

The tree lined beach offers plenty of shade and the clear sea is excellent for snorkeling and swimming. The easiest way to get to this little known beach is to go through the Laguna Complex and follow the road heading north.

With the opening of the renowned Nikki Beach brand in January 2014, Layan Beach has somewhat been modernized. The Nikki Beach club, restaurant and lounge is adorned with teepees, chic drapery and all-white sun beds and holds regular themed parties, fashion shows and live music events. On the second floor there is the VIP lounge that has fantastic panoramic views over the Andaman Sea.

Close to Layan Beach on a hillside is the 360 Degrees restaurant, as its name suggests also has some picture-postcard perfect all round views of Phuket’s lush greenery and glittering sea. This super-chic restaurant offers delicious Thai cuisine and fine international dishes.

Layan Beach has it all – with a beautiful peaceful beach and up-market venues close at hand – there is always something for everyone.
