Have you ever wanted to fulfil your dreams of living by a tropical beach? While such dreams can seem unobtainable, Thailand has definitely made them a reality. With stunning white sands lined with exotic palm trees, expats here swear the island life is the best way to live. And, such communities are what make a life by the beach all the more comfortable. Here, we list the best places to live by the beach in Thailand.

Thailand’s Best Places To Live By The Beach

1. Phuket

If living by the ocean is your dream, Phuket might be the best place for you. The pristine white sands and clear waters of the beaches will provide hours of fun. Furthermore, the area is rich in natural beauty, allowing for plenty of sightseeing opportunities. Phuket has plenty of exciting things to do and see, from natural parks to aquariums. The cost of living is also reasonable, as a beachfront apartment in Western countries would set you back an arm and a leg!


2. Hua Hin

This seaside town is teeming with beauty and unique attractions. Aside from its pristine beaches, the town offers a resort-style feel with Western amenities. From great shopping malls to natural excursions, Hua Hin offers something for everyone. Moreover, the town has a large expat community that certainly helps those living here, feel like they are at home. Here, you can sunbathe to your heart’s desire, try out water sports, or dine on delicious seafood daily.

3. Koh Pha Ngan

This iconic island’s views are reminiscent of a postcard as its beaches are considered to be some of the most beautiful in the world. The small Gulf of Thailand island is known for its wild Full Moon parties as well as its Bohemian vibe. Here, an eclectic expat community takes pride in preserving the island with environmental initiatives while also making it a haven to yogis and health nuts. Moreover, if you are not into the party scene, there are plenty of other things to do and see on this delightfully, exotic island.

4. Khanom

Known as the place to go in order to see the rare pink dolphins, Khanom is a relatively unknown gem. As it is not teeming with tourists, the tropical beaches sit majestically untouched. Additionally, by living in Khanom, you are still located on the mainland, making it easy to travel to other places. As it features everything of a tropical island, without needing to hop on a ferry, its pristine beauty makes it a top place to live in Thailand’s south.


5. Koh Samui

As the Gulf of Thailand’s largest and most developed island, expats truly have the best of both worlds. Thus, living here is like that of a secluded island with all the amenities one needs. From international hospitals and schools to absolutely stunning beaches, the island way of life combines modernity with seclusion. Koh Samui is a great place to settle down, as it is nearby the other 2 islands of Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao, which also provide their own exclusive expat niches.
