And if you are REALLY addicted to beaches it's hard to beat anywhere in the Andaman Sea.

My favourite area is around Krabi where there are dozens of options near clear, unpolluted water.

Ao Nang Beach

That's about as crowded as it gets.

A short, inexpensive boat ride will take you to spectacular Railay Beach

Where you can rent a kayak for 100 baht an hour and explore sea caves..

And a little further boat ride from Ao Nang beach will take you to Hong Island where you can check out the huge monitor lizards, or swim in the clear water...

The snorkling ain't half bad either...

And for about 2000 baht you can take a day trip from Ao Nang beach on a speed boat to the Koh Phi Phi islands... with lots of stops along the way to visit the various sites, and to do a little snorkling along shallow reefs.

If you drive from Krabi to Phuket, be sure to stop at Phang Nga and take a boat ride from the river mouth out to James Bond Island. It's a marvellous day trip with lots to see along the way: caves, beaches, ancient rock paintings and a stop at a floating village for a meal and seashell crafts for sale.

And finally, a trip around Phuket. Phuket not my most favourite place in Thailand because I find it a bit over priced when compared to other parts of Thailand. But it's always worth a trip once in a while.

But, there is a whole lot more to Phuket than Patong beach with all its sleezy night life and fancy hotels. I much prefer Laem Sing beach and its beautiful sunsets.

It's where my friend stalked and caught a bright blue parrot fish by hand and later ate it.

And if you rent a car and drive around the island province there is far more to see than just Patong beach

Rawai Beach is much quieter and far cheaper than Patong Beach.

Nice photos, Samuian. Thailand has so many lovely beaches that it's hard to pick any particular one. There is a cross section of relatively deserted beaches mixed with the popular ones in resort areas. There is something for everyone. There are far fewer inland beaches because most of Thailand's lakes are actually reservoirs that don't lend themselves to forming beaches. Kanwin knows a few in Kanchanaburi and there is a small lake/reservoir near Chiang Mai that is quite pleasant... Huay Tung Thao. It gets quite busy on a Sunday afternoon when the local Thais go out for a meal beside the lake while letting the little ones have a splash in the relatively clean water. It's a nice 4 1/2 km walk around the lake.

I think the family and friends, and all the ladies on the beach are taking it a bit too far.

The thread is about Beach Photography, not the family snaps or the voyeur's view.

Thank you.

And another beach vendor on Wong Duean beach in Koh Samet.

Very few of them actually, and they're not really pushing hard to sell their stuff on the beach.

They're just passing by.
