Kalim Beach (Haad Ka Lim) is really a continuation
north of Patong's strand, from which it is separated by some rocks.
It is not yet developed and thus affords some privacy. Back of the
beach are accommodations. The waters contain extensive coral reefs.

Beach (Haad Pa Tong) is Phuket's central tourist and night time
entertainment district. Over the years, Patong has turned from a
fishing village into one of the island's two cities. The famous
bay and 4 kilometers beach remain as they were, with development
limited to the area back of the beach road. There, however, virtually
every kind of entertainment imaginable awaits visitors, with bars
catering to every nationality. Live music can be found in many places,
and there are also discotheques. Accommodations range from budget
to five-star. Shopping opportunities appear to be endless. Whatever
one's culinary disposition, a restaurant catering to it will be
found. In addition, there are many tour companies waiting to help
visitors plan their vacations. There's saying locally, "If you can't
find it in Patong, it doesn't exist in Phuket." which, if not entirely
true, about sums it up.
