Don't know what boat takes 10 minutes but long-tail boat takes 20-25 and this was perfect weather. Asking price at extreme south of Patong beach was 2500 baht for four people but a little further along it started at 2000 and we got for 1800. The beach itself has some facilities that you need to pay for if you use them but the guy in the "military" shirt tried to insist we had to pay 100 baht per head just to be there. Told him we weren't paying just to be on a beach and moved away from the serviced area and he left us alone. Others in same area told us they had paid but thought it was probably a scam.

Beach is nice and secluded, a nice get away for a couple of hours. But hardly a "secret" any more. Long-tail ride was worth it regardless.

I and my friends had a chilling afternoon walking alongside the beach and lying there. Clean water and white sand creates a picturesque scene. Not so crowded so we had enjoyable time.

Do yourself a favour... Hop on a long boat and head to Freedom Beach. We got a tip from an expat living and working in Patong to go here and boy was it worth it!

The boat ride serene, the beach majestic and calming and quiet unlike crazy Patong Beach.

Stay for a short time or a long time and you're guaranteed a good time.

If you are on Patong Beach and lovely the peace and serenity then you must head to Freedom Beach. The white sandy beach and the crystal waters was picture perfect. I did like the unique relaxing and hidden away beach. It's the perfect place to people that doesn't like crowded beaches. My friends Christina and Tony visited Freedom Beach for their honeymoon so they were so excited coming back here with me and introducing me more about services and food.
Well, it was really a lovely beach - white sand and no rocks in under the water so walking and wading was fantastic. We did get bitten by sea lice but just washed off with bottled water when we got out of the ocean and had no lasting itches. Lots of colorful fish swimming around us and a friend who swam near the longboats saw a stingray! So amazing! We played beach volleyball and flew a kite and had a magical time.
Highly recommended.
