Nice beach with a lot of local waterspouts and warm water. The beach and shade spots fill up quickly so be sure to hurry and get a good spot!

Patong Beach IS a beach, but it also describes the surrounding town, which is full of nightlife! There is some sort of shopping, bar, eatery, market, massage spa tattoo parlor packed into every nook and cranny of Patong Beach. The beach area is also beautioful!

- very busy beach - people constantly coming up to you asking for daytime activities, and trying to rip you off by paying way too much - experienced the beach at daytime, probably different at night

I've heard all the stories....the lady boys, the strippers, the music and the alcohol that never seems to stop flowing...this beach bar street should definitely make your list at least once during your stay. Beware of the cobra whisky lol

Patong beach is dirty and just full of tourists.. If you skip this you are not missing out on anything at all, probably one of the worst beaches I have seen.
