Family vacation in nov/dec. nice beach where?

Hi everyone

We have never been to Thailand. But very keen on going next winter. Properly nov/dec. for 14 days. (nov/dec. seems to be the cheapest seasson). 2 adult and 2 kids 8-5 years.

But we tried to google and search info on which area to visit. But havent found one. It seems to be a bit difficult to satisfy us :(.

Its seems that a lot of resorts/hotels have "a not so nice" beach and the tides have the influenze.

Is this correct? and it is normal to go by boat to the best beaches?

We would really like to find a resort/bungalow with nice pools located by a "bounty beach" with white sand and clear water. And not totally isolated and with too long a transfer from airport.

Can this be found :) ?

Hi

If November / December then the west coast Phuket, islands of krabi province( kih phi phi, koh Lanta, koh Jum) , khao lak area in Phang Nga province ) and the islands of Trad ( koh Chang, koh Mak and koh kood) may suit you. The east coast ( koh smaui, koh toa and kih phangan ) you will be in the middle of rainsunseso season.

Cheers,

Italy

Hi, with kids I would check out Kata in Phuket, nice beach with a lot of bar and restaurant choices, if it's within budget the Kata Beach Resort is agood option because it has direct beach access

Pick the area first then ask for specific beach and resort.
