Rayee Beach Phuket is nestled between Hua Beach and Kamala Beach. Rayee Beach Phuket is a coral and rock-filled beach in front of the Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort. This 500 meters (547 yards) long beach faces northwest and visitors can see a partial sunset from the beach, but there are much better places for watching the sunset on the island at any of the west-facing beaches like Surin, Banana, Patong, Freedom, and Karon, to name just a few.
This is another beach that isn’t found on Google Maps for some reason, and most people won’t know what you’re referring to if you mention it by name. You can reach it with a short drive going north past Patong Beach on Highway 4233.
Rayee Beach is not the best beach to choose for swimming, surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking, paddle boarding, or wading. It might be possible to snorkel during high tide, but the rocks and coral are just under the surface and present a danger of scratches and cuts.
Though the Hyatt Regency is a very nice 5-star resort and gets great reviews, don’t plan on coming here and spending a lot of time at the beach unless you’re just after a tan and some relaxation. The beach sand is usually very nice, and ultra-clean. Chairs and umbrellas are available for hotel guests.
The road runs right along the southwest end of Rayee Beach, and it is easy to park your motorbike or vehicle there and have a stroll if you wanted. Phuket has many other really stunning beaches that are great for water activities, and you should probably choose one of them instead of Rayee Beach Phuket!
