Thailand’s beaches have a little something for everyone.
It is easy to find a completely isolated stretch of sand where you can lay out and read a book without ever being bothered by anyone.
On the other extreme there are huge expanses of beaches filled with bars, hotels, restaurants and shops, so you can be as social as you want when showing off your hot beach body.
If you don’t like to sit directly on the sand, many stretches of beach will allow you to rent out a chez lounge for the day. Then, you can have sexy waiters bring you drinks and food all day long as you let the sun caress your body. In Pattaya and in Phuket, there is an area dedicated to gay visitors. It is a much larger area in Pattaya than it is in Phuket but it is the same general concept.
You can even arrange to have a massage while you are sitting in the chair. Manicures and Pedicures are easily found for about 200 baht total. Massages normally go for around 100 baht for 30 min or 200 baht for an hour. Most of the time the massage boys have to pay the vendors that own the area you are sitting at so be sure to tip them at least 20 baht for an hour massage.
Massages and pampering are not all you will find at the beach.
For those of you who like to be more active, it’s easy to find a volleyball game or body surf the waves.
Many of the resort areas also offer parasailing, snorkeling and other forms of beach play.
When looking at a guide book you will notice two types of beaches listed, “Stay Beaches” and “Day Beaches”.
A Stay Beach will have a hotel nearby where you can check in for the night. A Day Beach is more isolated and you will have to travel at the end of the day to get back to civilization.
Not matter what you choose to do, you will enjoy yourself and understand why in Thailand, life is a beach!
