Bang Tao is an 8 km long crescent shaped bay with pure white sand and rows of casuarina trees. Bangtao Beach very popular with windsurfers and hosts several international competitions each year. The main entrance to Bangtao beach is 2 km north of Surin Village and marked with large signs from the sprawling Laguna Phuket complex that takes up most of the middle of the bay. The luxury resort complex consists of The Banyan Tree Resort, The Allamanda, Dusit Laguna, and the Sheraton Grande Luguna Beach Club.

 Additional Information

The southern end of the beach has a small fishing village and is protected from the swells, on the big surf days (over 3 metres) some nice smaller waves appear here. Towards the northern end the waves get bigger. The northern end of the beach is exposed to the winds and the shifting sand banks make the waves unpredictable, but on its day the surf can be perfect.

??? - Dude, copy & paste or not, whoever wrote this ain't never been near this beach. I lived there 7 years, and i managed to get maybe 3 decent surf sessions in my entire time there. The length is only like 50 odd meters on a good day, and you'll be lucky to find a wave much bigger than 3ft. If you want to surf in thailand, surin bay (the next over from bangtao)goes off alright on a good day. Things could be different now though, cos i haven't been back to phuket since before the tsunami. For the best surf in asia, hit Java man. G-LAND IS DOPE!

Copy and Paste - They person who posted the info here doesn't have any imagination...it's just a copy and paste exercise from the Saltwater Dreaming website
