Ao Bang Thao or Hat Bang Thao has a beautiful white sand beach; however, it might not be as delicate as the other islands. Due to its endless beach, Hat Bang Thao is one of the longest beaches in Phuket where the tourists can swim and play water sports. Apart from the nice smell of the sea, the visitors can enjoy the view of the mountains beside the beach. In addition, many more facilities are developed to meet the visitors’ need; for example, five-star luxurious resorts and hotels, restaurants, and shopping places. The transportation is also quite convenient, thanks to the taxi service which helps the tourists travel much easier. Ao Bang Thao is, therefore, very popular among foreign tourists. Those who love exploring coral reefs and diving off the coast will find this place even more attractive, since they can go diving and see the spectacular coral reefs at the North of the island.
However, those who love diving off the coast should study the diving information and check the weather before going because, during monsoon season, the sea is very stormy with strong currents and big waves which are not suitable for diving and swimming
