Thailand is a diverse country with so much to offer, but one of the highlights of a trip to this captivating country is the beaches. While there's too many to mention, we do have some favorites. We put together a list of some of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand. Don't forget your sunscreen!
Ko Phi Phi Don
Quick tip: Be sure to take a longtail boat to Maya Bay for more great snorkeling and to get a glimpse of the towering limestone karsts. But go early — the area (though stunningly gorgeous) gets crowded fast.
While the main drag is admittedly overcrowded during peak season, there's still solace (or at least more patches of sand) to be found on Long Beach, a quick longtail boat ride from the ferry docks. There are several places to stay in this part of pretty Koh Phi Phi and there's some great snorkeling to be done right from the beach. You can easily rent equipment from most hotels and guesthouses. The water is crystal-clear, the sand soft and white and there are a few small beach bars nearby anytime you get thirsty or need a snack.
