Create an itinerary including Freedom Beach
Relax in a secluded and peaceful environment at Freedom Beach. Accessible by long-tail boat, this spot benefits from shallow water with fantastic visibility, ideal for spotting the area's colorful marine life and snapping a few pictures. Play beach soccer against the locals, or head up to one of the pleasant bars that overlook the beach. The location remains one of the relatively few tranquil beaches around Phuket, so head here for a little peace and quiet (and remember to keep it a secret). Add Freedom Beach and other attractions to your Patong trip itinerary using our Patong holiday site.

  • The beach itself is gorgeous. Get there early as it doesn’t take long for it to fill up & boats to start coming. I can imagine this becoming a typical busy tourist beach soon, so feel lucky we seen...

  • Very nice beach but you want to get there early as it becomes very busy and boats park by the shore leaving little room for swimming. I recommend go before 9 or 10am. We got the long boat from Patong....  more

  • Freedom Beach is a public beach but to get there you will have to enter through private land. You can park at The Lek Sand Beach Bar which is owned by the landowner and walk down to the beach from there. Note that it is “FREE” no entrance fee, no parking fee. There is other entrance to the Freedom beach but they charge you 200 baht/person
  • Really enjoyed Freedom Beach. We didn’t take the paved way up so our journey was a bit bumpy on a bike with two people. Once we parked we saw lots of pigs and were directed to the path leading down to the beach. No one asked for payment for parking. We then took a bit of a downhill jungle hike. Took around 15-20 to get down. Very pretty! But, hot. Wouldn’t recommend with any kind of sandal or something you might slip around in. Beach was beautiful, white sand. We snorkeled around for 45 or so minutes and the visibility was great. Saw a few fun fish! Enjoy the sweet local pup who begged for food. For the trek back out we went barefoot and it was much easier. We then took the paved way back down the mountain which was way nicer of a ride and also took us by a pretty stunning viewpoint. Definitely recommend, it’s worth it!
