Layan beach is one of the most tranquil beaches in Phuket. It is located on the west coastline of Phuket and boarders Bangtao beach on the northern end. The most unique thing about this beach and perhaps what attracts thousands of tourists is that it houses an island known as Koh Kala in its northern side. Unlike other beaches, tall pine trees border the beach providing a cool shade making it a perfect place for relaxing. Towards the end of the beach is a river where fishing activities are carried out by the locals. The blue seas, white sands, and the island make Layan beach one of the most photogenic beaches.
