Nice beach area in Phuket. The sand is funny here - it squeaks when you walk on it! Huge beach area for laying out and some shady spots too. Restaurants & shops nearby.

Karon area is good with some international chain properties along with good choices of food and beach activities.

Another which sand beach, you can enjoy the big waves there.
Other than normal swimming behaviors.....
There are people playing parachute with speed boat.
Also there are "models" take photos. I am not sure whether they are professional or not.

The beach appear to be relatively clean and it looks like the locals pay a lot of attention to keep it that way. However once is a while you might see something floating in the water. Be aware of sudden rips that might pull an innocent swimmer out - don;t panic. Let the current carry you out and then swim parallel to the beach where it is calm and come back ashore preserving as much energy as possible.

We were staying at the Village Hotel and Spa, which was quite close to the beach area. Nice sandy beach - busy because of Songkran with lots of local Thais. Saw a large coach party enjoying parasailing. Lovely sunsets. A strip of bars/restaurants opposite the beach, near a lake.
