Paradise Beach in Phuket itself is small but nature divided it by a stone cliff into two more small coves. AT unlike neighboring Freedom Beach, there are stones under water here, and in sand on the shore – fragments of shells and corals.
Although it should be noted that the sand on the Paradise is different along the entire length. Closer to the water that part that constantly covers the tides – yellow and with impurities. And here is a strip of sand that never Flooded, consists of fine and white sand.
The atmosphere here is also completely different. If on Fridome, with his some inaccessibility and purely Thai restaurant, there is a feeling of authenticity and jungle, then Paradise is quite a European place. The whole beach is occupied by a restaurant, which looks very modern and much prettier, absolutely not tie style
Just as I understand it, there are regular parties here, in including Zakos under the Pangan Full Moon Party. In my moment there was no party, but the stage was set on the beach, which worked as a DJ and played modern music.
Shower and toilet are free, all other amenities, including including food and drinks (which are forbidden to bring to the beach) – require additional costs. Can not be carried from the word “in general”, they are no worse than at the airport. All that you take away will be returned upon your departure.

Entry, depth and waves
As I wrote above, the beach is more suitable for parties than for swimming (swim better at high tide). Bottom at Paradise sandy-stony, clear water, you can see the fish floating on shallow water, and the bottom covered with corals. People periodically come out of water with cuts, the good thing is that the beach even has its own doctor on duty. During low tide, you can clearly see all the good that awaits you under water
The beach at low tide becomes practically non-payable, because in you won’t swallow a puddle, and to the depth you will go knee-deep for a long time water and coral. Plus, also stretched off the coast coral reef. And also, due to the location of the bay, in the second half of the day there is almost no sun. That is, about five o’clock evenings, the beach is completely immersed in the shade.
Sun beds and shade
Natural shade of rare trees in the morning It covers the beach partially, but it is not enough for all, so tourists resting mainly on the loungers under the umbrellas. Plastic beds, ordinary, offered to tourists for 100 baht. If you want to to rent double chaise lounges with a thick mattress – this will already be cost 500 baht.

Infrastructure on Paradise Beach is represented by one civil the restaurant, along with the stage, and there are several shops that belong to the same owners – in fact, everything is one range of services for a beach holiday. Hotels and some other there is no housing here.
Prices in the restaurant are high: a tayfud of 300 baht, sandwiches of 250, pineapple shake – 120 baht. I would say, quite expensive a place. In addition to food, in the restaurant you can ask for sunbeds, umbrellas, kayak for hire, snorkel mask or SUP.
Cards are accepted for payment, but with a five percent wrap, all prices are about one and a half times higher than those in Patong. I come here is not the first time and I want to note that the place is gradually becoming more urbanized.
On that day, when I arrived in 2017, as I learned from the Thais, there was a change of land owner, so the conditions have changed stay on the beach (previously there was free admission, made 100 baht). Perhaps there will be some other changes, I will be glad to your comments. if you visit here after me and tell me what’s new with prices.

How to find the beach
Paradise Beach, unlike Freedom, is located at the end of a good roads, so there is not much point to spend money on a taxi-boat – here easily accessible by scooter or car. For this follows move along the road running along the coast.
Start your journey more conveniently from the southern part of Patong towards Karon, but do not go to the main road, but go on the road that follows along the coast, it passes by Tri Trang beach, rises uphill, descends, and there you will see a large package with yellow buses on which the shuttle-bus is written (by the way, run on Patong every 30 minutes).
Here it is necessary to park the bike, and then you will take the free shuttle down to the beach and exactly the same then on this shuttle before parking you you get back, they ply here all the time.
From parking to the beach to go a couple of minutes, but there is a steep descent and better to overcome it on the bus. Below, directly near the beach and restaurant, I noticed that there, too, there is parking with bikes. Apparently those who are bolder, go themselves to the bitter end.
You can also get on the water, renting a boat in Patong.
