Imagine gently swaying in a hammock hanging between two coconut palms, as the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea lap the white sand of Thailand’s west coast beaches & islands.

A haven for snorkelling and diving, Thailand’s west coast offers dozens of picture-perfect beaches and islands to explore, each with its own characteristics. Whether you’re seeking a beach for just you and yours, or an active beach holiday full of water sports, the west coast has them all.
