The ‘Pearl of the Andaman’, Phuket is blessed with castaway white sand beaches, aquamarine water and sublime, protected marine parks.

Phuket offers numerous long sandy beaches, excellent seafood restaurants and is the ideal spot to island hop around the Andaman and to see the famous ‘James Bond’ island. Unfairly so, Phuket’s reputation has been somewhat tarnished by travellers’ tales of noisy Patong, however on such a large and beautiful island, this seedy strip is easily, and best, avoided.

Filling your time here is effortless – kayak in its turquoise waters and find offshore caves and hidden lagoons, lounge on beautiful beaches and journey around the island just to take in the views from the winding coastal roads.

What to do

  • A boat trip around the Andaman Islands
  • Diving and snorkelling
  • Explore pretty Phuket Old Town
  • Many gorgeous beaches
  • Beautiful scenery on and off shore
  • The bright lights and chaos of Patong can be equally as easily visited as it can be avoided

When to go

To avoid the monsoon season it is best to travel to Phuket from November to April.

The soaring limestone karsts make this part of Thailand picturesque and unforgettable. No trip to Phuket is complete without taking to the water by kayak, longtail or speedboat to explore the beautiful islands, hunting for secluded beaches and taking in the striking scenery.
