Freedom Beach in Phuket is a 300-metre-long strip of white sand near Patong. The beach is set in a superb bay dotted with granite rocks and surrounded by hills covered by a thick jungle. Its exclusivity comes from its rather challenging accessibility, but it’s well worth the effort.
Apart from sunbathing, you can enjoy beach soccer (2 mini-goals are available), beach volleyball, and snorkelling in the area. The shallow waters at both ends of the beach are home to superb underwater life. There are no jet-skis or noisy marine leisure activities at Freedom Beach – the only audible engines are those of the long-tail boats in the distance.
