Hat Freedom

Beach in Hat Patong

If Patong is getting to you, escape to this more peaceful slice of golden sand washed by clear aqua water. It's just 15 minutes or a 1500B (return) long-tail boat ride south around the headland from Hat Patong. You can also get here via a challenging walk from a parking area 900m south of the Avista Hideaway Resort, beyond the southern end of Patong (though the path isn't always open).
