    I am taking the bike for a serious ride. So I was curious what people say their favorites are as I make it around.

    Pissed. Must mean you are hung over now. Which calls for some pain killers.

    Some nice ones up by the airport.

    Also only go to the beach out of tourist season, or before thje mongers drag their arse down.

    Go up the west coast highway through Ranong and back down the main highway to Surat Thani, takes 3 or 4 days if you get off the main road and have a good look around

    Kata Noi. Not a busy beach as you have to enter through a large resort. Safe beach with a rideable wave in the off season and has a shack that dishes up a feed and a cold one if you desire.

    my photos are all 4-5yrs old, since we left Phuket - and I wonder now if the quiet beaches we used to go to are covered in deck chairs

    A favourite getaway was to Nai Yang beach on west coast near airport, beach and small national park there




    _______

    Nai Harn - though in 2009 it did suffer from deckchair-itis and was best early morning



    ____

    I think this is the main Kata beach, complete with those ever-popular jetski rental blokes

    True that.

    not a beach, but plenty of water - near Kathu, Bang Wad dam, near Phuket Country Golf Club

    Road around the lake, 6.5km good cycling/running as mostly sheltered by trees
    One of the international schools used to hold a fundraising fun-run around the lake each year

    Nai Harn beach


    Nai Harn again - if you're a swimmer/snorkeler, head out to that island, easy from Yanui Beach (one over the hill with the wind turbine, south from NH), or rent a kayak on a calm day

    Nai Harn beach was one of the best beaches, now the beach chairs are 7 rows deep just before the drain on the south end and past the drain a restaurant has been built on public land that blocks access to the beach unless you climb over rocks
    Come on low season, might have beach access again

    north end of Layan Beach, also the beaches with no name if u drive the back roads to Nai Yung beach that u need park a walk down to

    Worst beach SURIN< chairs 4 deep, most expensive beach food on the island and the most open air beach clubs ( illegally) on a beach.

    Bang Wat dam QSI holds a fun run there in the fall every year

    For me as stated Kata Noi, Kata and Karon. Not as much Karon as there is not enough shade and it has a bad rip tide. But photographed from the right place at the right time you get as nice a beach shot as anywhere in the world.
