Earth’s BEST 100 Beaches
Is there a definitive list of the best beaches in the world? Well, the World Beach Guide says there is, and this year they released the top 100 beaches in the world. Think powder white sand, turquoise seas, permanent sunshine, and only the lightest of breezes wafting through the palms that fringe the beach and you’re there. From the endless white sands of remote Australian beaches to palm fringed tropical idylls these are all part of the list that the World Beach Guide has compiled.
The best news is that the number 1 best beach on the whole earth is Koh Kradan.
We are so lucky as there are 4 beaches from Phuket in the top 25, and 3 of these are on the 5 Star Marine tour list, so if you want to see them book up a tour NOW.
#1. Koh Kradan // Thailand 🇹🇭
#9. Railay Beach // Thailand 🇹🇭
#18. Freedom Beach // Thailand🇹🇭
#21. Laem Had Beach // Thailand 🇹🇭
Phuket Earth Hour
Earth Hour is a worldwide movement organized by the World Wildlife Fund, WWF (Not the wrestling company). The event is held annually, encouraging individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights, for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., usually on the last Saturday of March, as a symbol of commitment to the planet.
Earth hour was celebrated all over Phuket with Phuket Hotels, Phuket Resorts, Phuket attractions, and Phuket Schools all turning ff their lights for an hour and doing beach clean ups and other events and activities to help promote and be part of Earth Hour 2023.
Phuket Beach Clean Ups
Phuket has beach clean-ups happening most weekends somewhere on one of the many Phuket Beaches. One of the most active groups for beach cleaning is Sustainable Mai Khao, who are out almost every day cleaning and educating on the importance of keeping Phuket beaches clean. Sustainable Mai Khao’s mission is “Connecting and empowering our community to preserve our natural environment.” If you would like to get involved then you visit their website at www.sustainablemaikhaofoundation.org
When is the Best Time of Year to Visit Phuket?
The editor of the YouTube videos Kyle, had the best answer to this question, he said at least 3 times a year.
There are many good times to visit Phuket, and it really does depend on what you are looking for, who you are with, budget and I am sure many more things that I can’t think of right now.
If you want perfect weather then peak season, the end of Dec and Jan is the best time to visit BUT this is also one of the busiest times and most expensive times.
If you don’t mind about the weather and its ok if you get a bit wet or some of the activities are closed, BUT the island is a little quieter and cheaper, than low season July to Oct is a great time to visit.
So, if you want a direct answer, come to Phuket during the shoulder periods. These are the times just before the low season or just before the high season. You will find the weather is pretty good, the prices are reasonable and the island is not too busy.
