Which is the best area to stay in Phuket

for the beaches? We stayed in patong last time we went and didnt really venture out to the other beaches (apart from taking a trip to Phi Phi). Is Kata beach or Karon beach nice?

We have looked at staying at the Marriott Resort and Spa which is the opposite end of the island. We are basically looking to stay at a resort that has a really nice beach and a few bars/restaurants within walking distance.

Many thanks in advance!

Hi, if you want a lovely beach with fantastic choice of restaurants right on the beach (eating dinner with the sand literally between your toes) then have a look at Bang Tao beach. We loved it. (stayed at Karon too,which was nice but much much busier than Bang Tao, but Karon was good for shopping)
