Tri Trang Beach 2 Phuket is also known as Merlin Beach. They’re all talking about the same lovely little beach in front of the Phuket Marriot Resort & Spa on Phuket Island west of Patong Beach not far from Tri Trang Beach 1 which is adjacent to Patong Beach.
Tri Trang Beach2 is small compared to most beaches on Phuket, it is only about 160 meters long and not so wide, around 10 meters on average.
The beach itself is nothing so special, the sand is full of large shells and rocks and the ocean has some submerged rocks and coral. There is a large coral reef at the entrance to the bay which could entice snorkelers to go have a look. There are rocks at both ends of Tri Trang Beach 2 as well.
The Phuket Marriot Resort & Spa at Tri Trang Beach 2 is an exclusive 5-star resort with hundreds of positive reviews from their guests over the years. They have three massive swimming pools and a kids pool, wet bars, and restaurants which get good reviews. The location isn’t bad, but you won’t be walking to anything close by, it’s a bit secluded and Patong Beach shopping is 5-10 minutes away by tuk-tuk or your rental vehicle. Or you could opt for taking a longtail boat from the beach to Freedom Beach for 1,000 THB.
Complimentary morning buses into Patong Beach and return, were mentioned by a number of guests in their reviews. Many weddings are held here, and nearly everyone seems very satisfied with the friendliness and professionalism of staff at this hotel….
