Relax Bay

Relax Bay (Karon Noi beach) - Phuket five minutes south of Patong Beach, as you climb the hill you will see a large hotel complex on your right. This is a good place to pull off to the side of the road for a minute and enjoy the scenery.

This wonderful little bay is part of the Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort. Unfortunately, the Le Meridien Hotel blocks access to this beach, and unless you are a guest there, this beach can only be reached by boat from Patong. This Deluxe Resort Hotel has a wide range of restaurants and extensive leisure facilities. The striking architecture and cultural motifs of the 470 five-star rooms, each with a private balcony, blend beautifully with the surrounding landscape.

Relax Bay

There is no official lookout point here, just a few chairs and an abandoned roadside restaurant, but it is a great place to watch the white bellied sea eagles feed early in the morning. They soar the sky in a circular pattern making a dramatic dive into the sea and taking flight with fish on their talons for breakfast.

While watching the birds, its a great place to appreciate the gentle breeze, the magnificent view, the stunning hues of blues and greens all framed with a white sandy beach, and the lazy white clouds as they roll silently past.

You can feel and breathe the beauty of Phuket That is what draws people to visit here, and what brings them back time and again. Unbelievable as it may seem it only gets better as you continue to the south towards Karon Beach and Kata Beach.
