Bang Tao Beach is around 7 kilometers (4 mi.) long from top to bottom, and is a west facing beach – ideal for sunsets. In that stretch are a number of other privately named beaches like Momo beach, Ottoman beach, and Rattan Beach. Bang Tao Beach is covered with very tall pine trees known as ironwood trees, great for providing shade for picnic-goers at the beach below.
Bang Tao Beach is fronted by a series of large luxury resorts, and yet it isn’t overcrowded. There is so much space at this beach that you will never feel like there are too many people. Instead, you’ll be asking yourself where everybody is.
The bay of Bang Tao Beach is wide open to the waves generated by swells coming in, and surfing can be quite good. Waves can reach 3 meters (3 yd.) high here and there is a strong undertow to be aware of during such conditions. When there are very small waves, it’s generally safe for kids, but keep an eye on them (of course).
