Pattaya Beach is only a little over an hour from Bangkok and is very popular, and has many inexpensive accomodation options.

Phuket is very popular and lovely beach destination, but takes more effort to get there.

TripAdvisor has a nice listing of their top 10 beaches in Thailand.  Give it a look: http://www.tripadvisor.com/TravelersChoice-Beaches-cTop-g293915

If you like the adult nightlife you can go to Pattaya. Just so you know, no one swims in the ocean there as it is polluted. Phuket is overcrowded and expensive. There are better beaches like in Krabi, Ko Phi Phi etc. Best places for traveling? Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Ayuthaya plus the islands. Depends on what you like to do. Just look up the guide books online.

When are you going to be using these "best beaches" in Thailand?    Will you be just sitting on the beach looking or actually diving??

 

Pattaya is easy to get to but Pattaya Beach is no good for swimming.   Lots to see in that area and for several years this city is been very popular with family groups and even women traveling alone or in groups.  The many malls always have female tourists and family groups.    There is cheap nightlife (cheaper than Bangkok and Phuket) that you can ignore or avoid;  but there are also cheap hotels and transportation too!   Only 2 hours by bus from Bangkok.   Pattaya is not too hot for diving but the beach is okay for sunbathing, shopping, restaurants, etc.   Hotels have pools or you can go to nearby beach areas.    Better beaches further south but mind the weather!   

 

If you are a student or close to that age and you want to be around other young tourists research Koh Phangan.   Also good spot to go to if you want to get wasted on dope and alcohol while looking at the "full moon!"   Very popular with students young tourists.

 

If you are coming from a country that qualifies for the free 30 day visa exemption this free stamp in your passport is for 30 days or less.   If you plan on staying longer you must also plan on buying a visa or visiting other countries and returning.   Round trip tickets are usually cheaper than buying one way flight to Bangkok and one way flight back home Bangkok.    Local transportation in Thailand is cheap.   Round trip flights fulfills a requirement for proof of onward travel.

You need to decide on beach area first
the style of beaches from busy, lively, nightlife, shopping
to quiet relaxing beaches, so you need to decide on that first
as to they type of place to stay.

Pattaya is the place while when we talk about the beach is Phra Nang, Krabi . However, we believe that depends on your choice; which beach and place you like the most.

1.  Patong Beach, Phuket Pretty and popular   The largest beach on the island of Phuket is also the country’s most popular beach. With a wide coastline, soft white sand, warm water and plenty of hotels, restaurants and shopping within walking distance it’s impossible to get bored here.    2.  Railey Beach, Krabi Quiet and sporty   Though it’s technically on the mainland, Railey Beach is only accessible by boat and has a desert island feeling you won’t find on most of the country’s popular beach destinations   3.  Maya Bay, Koh Phi Phi Ley Just gorgeous   This small stretch of sand is the quintessential Thailand beach and might just have the best scenery of any in the country. Part of a little island adjacent to Ko Phi Phi, the beach is nestled in a small bay and surrounded by tall limestone cliffs. Maya Bay can only be visited on day trips by boat, since there are no accommodations here.   4.  Hua Hin Beach, Hua Hin Convenient and family-friendly   This beach on the Gulf of Siam is immensely popular for locals and international visitors, thanks to the flat stretches of beach, plenty of things to do and the ease of travel from Bangkok.    5.  Kata Beach, Phuket Relaxed   Just a couple of miles away from the hustle and bustle of Patong Beach is this quieter, relaxed beach in Southern Phuket.    6.  Lamai Beach, Samui The perfect balance   Though Samui’s beaches can be packed, especially during high season, this beach strikes the perfect balance for visitors looking for pretty scenery, good swimming and plenty of other things to do when you’re not in the water.   7.  Sairee Beach, Koh Tao Chilled out   Once almost exclusively a base for divers, visitors are slowly realizing that Ko Tao has more to offer than just a place to eat and sleep between dives. This one mile stretch of white sandy beach with a beautiful view of small islands in the horizon is Ko Tao’s most popular, with plenty of inexpensive accommodations and restaurants.    8.  White Sand Beach, Koh Chang No longer just for backpackers   This beautiful stretch of beach on the west side of the island is fringed with palm and coconut trees against a backdrop of gentle sloping hills. Though Ko Chang is still considered more of a backpacker island than a luxury destination, there’s a wide selection of accommodations to choose from.   9.  Haad Rin, Koh Pha Ngan Party beach   As beautiful as it is, Haad Rin is really known for just one thing – Full Moon Parties! Once a month the beach goes on an all-night bender with plenty of drinking, dancing and music. At other times of the month, the party atmosphere still pervades so those looking for a quieter beach experience might want to steer clear.    10.  Koh Mun Nork Desert island   This small, private island in the northern part of the Gulf of Siam is paradise found for anyone looking for a true desert island experience. The white sandy beach is surrounded by palm trees and not much else – there’s only one resort on the island.
