List of popular beaches in Thailand. What are the top beaches in Thailand? This list ranks the best Thailand beaches, one of the countries with the best beaches in the world, from secluded getaway beaches on Thailand's uninhabited islands to the all-night party beaches in Phuket. Thailand's islands hold some of the most pristine beaches in the world with untouched white sands and crystal clear waters. Whether you charter a boat or spend the day snorkeling, there are many popular destinations for an island hopping beach adventure in Thailand. 

Thailand enjoys a humid tropical climate all year long with dry, wet and rainy seasons. The best time to visit the islands is during the dry season between November and March when there is not a lot of rainfall and humidity. It's also not as hot during the dry season, and the sea is clear and calm for marine adventures including snorkeling, canoeing and more. During the wet season, boat trips can be canceled by monsoons and the sea is full of silt, making it less than ideal for snorkelers and marine enthusiasts. 

The Andaman Sea is one of the world's top diving sitesScuba diving in Thailand is a popular recreational activity for tourists and is one of the cheapest regions to get certified. Thailand is one of the most affordable destinations, with beachside bungalows, luxury resorts and a plethora of recreational activities that won't break the bank.
