5 Off-Season Beach Destinations in Thailand for a Crowdless Vacation


Thailand has a well-deserved reputation as a world-class beach destination. But with about 1,430 islands to choose from, where does one even start? Fret not, we’ve rounded up some of Thailand’s most dreamy beaches perfect for visiting any time of the year, including the off-season so you avoid the crowd.

A Quiet Attraction – Coral Cove Beach, Koh Samui

Swim: Although more of an open secret than a spot reserved for those in the know, Koh Samui’s Coral Cove Beach still retains its appeal as a serene gem that’s quite different from the crowded beaches of Lamai. Don’t expect developed infrastructure but come instead for contemplation of nature, a spot for snorkelling and blissed-out solitude.

Stay: From a beverage truck serving boozy tropical concoctions by the pool to lazy soaks in a private villa pool, Avani+ Samui Resort distils the best of Samui while showcasing its playful side. As a bonus, guests get priority access to SEEN Beach Club Samui.

Rock of Ages – Railay Beach, Krabi

Swim: Railay is a rock-climbing and bouldering mecca, not a beach bum paradise, so be prepared to scale those limestone cliffs instead of admiring the soaring shapes from the lagoon down below. Although getting there is an adventure in itself, the long-tail boat ride doesn’t seem to deter the many adrenaline junkies who flock here.

Stay: For a cliffside adventure of a different kind (think sundowners in an infinity pool), you can’t beat Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort. Thanks to the resort’s central location, you will also have access to all the dive sites off the nearby islands in the bay. It's also a centre for long-tail boat tours to the beaches of limestone islands such as Koh Hong, Koh Poda, and Koh Gai (Chicken Island).

Lunch With a View – Nui Beach, Koh Lanta

Swim: Unless it’s diving that brings you to Koh Lanta (in which case you should be dropping anchor near Hin Daeng and Hin Muang cliffs), you can’t go wrong with Nui. A small isolated beach located in a bay at the foot of a jungle-clad mountain, it’s a bit of a foodie destination thanks to a restaurant clinging to the slope of a hill. After having your fill of local specialities and scenic views, descend to the beach via a staircase for an afternoon dip.

Stay: Located in the north of Koh Lanta, Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort puts you in a prime position to explore the island, or just lap up the sunshine and drizzles of tranquil rain showers during the off-season. The plush décor will appeal to those with an eye for modern comforts and streamlined design, while serene forest and splendid tropical seas manage to instantly send stress-out urbanites into a state of bliss.

Just Add the Rum - Laem Singh Beach, Phuket

Swim: Laem Singh has an almost Caribbean feel to it thanks to all the nodding palm trees with luxurious crowns casting generous shadows on a powdery sand carpet. Situated between the crowded Kamala and Surin Beaches, one of Laem Singh’s attractions is its relative inaccessibility. Many tourists can’t be bothered catching a boat from Surin. Their loss!

Stay: Right on the doorstep of Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Suites & Villas lies the stunning Phang Nga Bay with its secluded beaches, limestone cliffs, fascinating cave systems, and archaeological sites. The property offers curated Avani tours bringing together sightseeing tips from local trend-setters, creatives, culture-makers, and travel influencers in one handy guide listing the best picnic locations, sunset points, and Insta-spots.

Beachcombers Welcome – Kho Kho Khao, Khao Lak

Swim: You can reach the island of Khao Lak by boat in about 30 minutes. To the east, you will find extensive mangrove forests; elsewhere, casuarinas and coconut trees line the wide, secluded sandy beaches. Beach walkers, nature lovers, and beachcombers all feel equally at home on the laid-back Koh Kho Khao.

Stay: Rainforest, waterfalls, wildlife, and a perfect stretch of untouched coastline right on the doorstep — Avani+ Khao Lak Resort has a lot going for it. Uninterrupted views of the Andaman Sea bring peace of mind with plenty of activities nearby to keep water sports enthusiasts happy.
