Phuket, with 540 square kilometres of land area and several sandy beaches, is a diverse and fascinating island to explore. A rich culture, a beautiful coastline, spectacular natural sights, loads of outdoor sports and activities, shopping, nightlife and dining are just a few of its many attractions.

Phuket Beaches

The beaches of Phuket remain the primary draw here, and few islands can boast of such an abundance of sandy beaches and clear waters as Phuket.

The winding coastal roads along the west coast offer stunning views and easy access to some of the world's finest beaches.

Whether one wants to sample the frenetic pace of Patong or find solitude on a remote stretch of sand in the north, Phuket's beaches have it all for the sun seeker.

The natural wonders of the mainland, just beyond Phuket over the bridge at the north of the island, are close at hand. Khao Lak boasts a stunning long, golden coastline and a lush, hilly interior, while Khao Sok to the northeast is one of Thailand's last remaining virgin forests with huge lakes, towering limestone mountains and an abundance of tropical flora and fauna. The islands surrounding Phuket each offer unique sights of their own, and are easily accessible within an hour or two by boat.

Many have excellent snorkelling and diving sites, while others simply offer nice patches of sand on which to spend a quiet day. To reach them, hire a long-tail boat or charter an island-hopping tour. Accommodation is available on a number of the islands - some of it rustic, some very exclusive.
