Layan Beach

 Tranquil Beach in Phuket

Layan Beach is one of the quietest and most beautiful beaches in Phuket.

Layan is not that well known, which is a bonus for those looking for a relaxing break away.


Looking out to Kala Island from the beach.


The beach itself has white sand and crystal clear waters and is located in a shallow bay at the far northern end of Bang Tao Beach on the west coast of Phuket.



The mouth of a small river separates Layan from Bang Tao Beach.

Just off shore is a small Island called Kala Island, which shelters the beach from the waves during the rainy season.


Kala Island is located just offshore from Layan on the north west coast of Phuket.


On low tide you can walk to Kala Island and watch the fishermen while soaking up the local culture and the beautiful views.


Enjoy peace and traquility at Layan Beach in Phuket.



Even on high tide you are able wade across to this little Island.

The water here is very shallow and calm, ideal for small children to play and explore.

We found it too shallow to go swimming.
