  • Beach Quality: The sand is nice, there are large rocks all over the beach, and it adds to the country environment.
  • Ocean Bottom: Covered with rocks and coral – not great for swimming, but snorkeling is good when the waves are flat.
  • Restroom / showers facilities? None, bring some freshwater to rinse off with if going in the water.
  • Beach features: Alex 2 is a rocky beach that is great for sitting around and enjoying the solitude of southern Phuket. The trees behind the beach are dense, and there will probably not be many people around.

  • Activities: Whatever you bring to do! Bring a flying disc; bring a drone to take video and photos of the shore (register with Thai police first); bring snorkeling gear, and don’t forget to bring a beach mat.
  • FKK possible? Not permitted, but if empty…
  • Massage available? No
  • Picnic possible? Yes
  • Surfing? None, too rocky.
  • Smoking? In November Thailand is cracking down on smoking at beaches around the country. In November 2017 in Phuket, Patong Beach is affected. Soon they expect to make it a country-wide smoking ban – so do stay up to date because fines are high and can include prison time.
  • Warnings: As with any remote beach, personal safety is something you cannot take for granted in Phuket or anywhere in Southeast Asia. If there is nobody on the beach, you might not want to be there yourself. It’s always a good idea to go in a group.
