Kalim Beach
Patong, Phuket, Thailand
Kalim is a charming, small, rocky beach on the southern side of the Laem Thip headland. It’s much more peaceful than neighbouring Patong, however the surrounding waters are best known for their coral reefs and not the best choice for swimming. At low tide, the beach is a treasure trove of sea-life, but wear shoes as the rocks and coral can be razor sharp.

Patong Beach
Patong, Phuket, Thailand
