Freedom Beach – a flat coastline with a length of about 250 meters, consisting of pure white and fine sand. From one parties drowning in the real jungle, and on the other hand plunging into clear sea water – all this is Freedom (Freedom). The beach is relatively difficult to access, although Patong is located just half an hour walk from the beach Freedom.
Once completely wild, deserted and almost unknown to anyone a beach where people could truly feel free, has now become one of the most popular pukhetka places, with amenities for tourists and paid entrance.

The beach is located just west of noisy Patong and goes around the north part of the cape covered with forest. Freedom Beach has become lately famous and not surprising.
It is beautiful, with fine white sand that naturally People like it very much, but you will not find peace and solitude here. If a you want to be here with a minimum of people then you need to come early in the morning to get off at 10-11 o’clock, because at this time boats with people are starting to swim up getting very crowded.
I read some descriptions of Freedom on the web, where it was said that it is divided into several parts – all this is far-fetched, the beach not divided in any way, just its central part is occupied by boats, so people bathe on the edges of the beach where there are no boats.
It can be noted that there is a small stretch of beach meters on the right. 20 in length, and yes, it is separated from the main beach by stones. If you you are on the main beach, you can get on this small either knee-deep in water (or climbing over stones) or along the path through the forest, but there is a hill, so you have to tense up a bit.
Entry, depth and waves
The shore goes under the water with the best, for lovers of swimming, deepening – after 10 meters even at low tide will be down the neck, so that the tide will have to walk even less. Freedom is not small and not deep – he is awesome. Thirty-meter wide, white sand, which reflects the sunlight under the water and gives the sea incredibly clean and stunning color.
Tides change the beach slightly, but the waves happen regularly. Although in most cases, Freedom is calm and beautiful beach.
Sun beds and shade
The left side of the beach belongs to the restaurant complex and it occupied the whole shadow. In the place where the palm trees begin and you can hide from the heat, from the sun, there are sun beds that you can rent all day for 120 baht. The rest of the Freedom owned by savage tourists who bring rugs with them and umbrellas, unless you plan to lie under the shade of the trees on shore.
In the central part of the beach there is no shadow in principle. There is a rock with forest, but the trees grow so that the shadows do not create.

On the beach there is no special entertainment – massage, kitchen, drinks and sun beds. Except, perhaps, swimming and snorkeling (off the coast there are coral reefs). For lovers of a beautiful panorama on The beach has a stone staircase leading to the nearest hill – a kind of observation deck, overlooking the sea and beach.

How to find the beach
Freedom Beach can only be reached in two ways: on boat or walk from the parking lot. Boats run from Patong, Kata and Caron, and you better come to the piers no later than 9 am to the boat turned out to be cheaper, and ideally – share it with another by someone.
If you are traveling in a big company, then there are no problems at all. The price for the boat in both directions is 1500 baht, but then how to arrange. Have I, for example, managed to bargain until 1300 for a boat, but boatmen are usually very reluctant to dump.
The cheaper way (although it is a bit more difficult) is to get to beach walk. Access to the beach on the ground – paid, 200 baht, open from 7-30 to 18-30. Passage means descent, because the road which you arrive at the parking by car or bike, is high above the beach.
There are two entrances: in the center and in the right side, when facing the by the sea.
If you want to get to the central aisle, then you need drive along the road from Patong to Karon, and turning off the main road to primer, go right up. Along the way there will be a closed gate and without Guards, I suppose, it is here that those who need to is free.
From the main entrance to the beach, the descent takes 10 minutes, because that there is a path through the jungle, practically cut through in the forest.
Exit from the main road
We must throw the bike here and go on foot.
This gate is the main entrance.
If you want to get to the right entrance, then you need not going to the main road, go along the embankment of Patong and further along the coastline almost to TriTrang beach.
Before reaching Tritrang, turn left to the Avista Hotel. Hideaway (available on my map), a primer will start nearby. Plot primer is very good and short, I recommend to go to this entry. Tuk-tuki also brought here.
The path from the legal entrance to the beach is civilized concrete. stairs. The result is faster than through the central entrance, You can go down at all in about five minutes. And this way is much more convenient, because you are going upstairs and it’s difficult to tuck your foot or what more. And climb back up the stairs is also more convenient.
The primer starts at the Avista Hideaway Hotel.
Entrance to the parking lot to the right entrance
You should not go on the road between the entrances
Specially pay your attention to this moment. Do not go from the main entrance to the right, or vice versa. The fact is that the stretch of road between these two entrances is very bad and its very difficult to ride a bike. I did it to check everything, but I do not advise anyone to repeat, because there are big stones, a lot debris, a narrow path and apparently due to the rains also washed away, therefore deep pits.
This is still not the worst part.
In the network there are some horror stories that are not allowed on the beach through the land, covered with all the barbed wire that there are some people who almost attack people – do not read! Outdated there is nothing like that here. There are 2 entrances to the beach, everything is organized and officially, this land belongs to private individuals, therefore for the passage through their land they take money.
Again – in the same concrete staircase they invested their money, made more convenient for people. I think this is a normal situation. things, and no problems with the passage does not arise. You come, park humanely, pay money and calmly pass on beach.
Maybe somewhere there are some wild and free passes, but I I do not know about them, because in terms of recreation, the beach is needed for good mood and relaxation, and I see no reason to try to climb somewhere through the bushes. Yes, the jungle is not close, it’s easier for me pay and go up the stairs.
Entry with their drinks and food is prohibited, but in fact no one checks. I guess you just don’t have to go with them sun beds and tables of the restaurant.
