The number one reason which Phuket has become such a popular destination is its dreamy beaches. You can simply stretch out on these white sands, or you can get involved in water sports. There are many types of sport which you can try, ranging from snorkelling to swimming to diving. The most stunning beaches are found in the western coastline of the island, and some worthy of mention include: Karon Beach, Kata beach, Kata Noi and Nai Han. While some of the beaches in the south of the island are particularly touristy, you can certainly find deserted beaches and green landscapes.
An unmissable site which should be on everybody’s bucket list, Phang Nga boasts some of the most beautiful landscapes in the whole of south Thailand. It sits between Phuket and Karbi. You can explore the caves and emerald green lagoons by kayak. You may even be able to find the islet which served as the backdrop during one of the James Bond films. You may feel like you’re in the setting of a film because this place is so enchanting… prepare for some real ‘pinch me’ moments! A traditional circuit of the zone would take about 3 hours by boat, a quality about of time to relax and unwind.
Found some few kilometres from the north-west of Phuket, this collection of islands is renowned for their exceptional diving spots. The islands have different areas where you can take the plunge, and each varies in terms of level of difficulty. Fortunately, the islands have something for everyone and are accessible for beginners as well as more advanced divers. In the northern region, you will also be able to spot manta rays and whales.
Phuket Town is the main town in the island with 50, 000 habitant, a unique culture and an interesting history. The main attraction of Phuket Town is its architecture. The buildings haven’t lost their historical houses, their charm and colour. Taking a walk along those beautiful streets is a glorious way to spend the morning. Some of the most iconic streets in the historical centre include: Yaowarat Road, Dibuk Road, Krabi Road, Soi Rommanee, Phang Nga Road, Ranong Road and Ratsada Road. The old town is quite compact and is easily discoverable by foot.
Thailand is a major shopping destination and there are often massive commercial centres which you can explore as well as authentic boutiques and souvenir shops. As you stroll, you will come across boutiques, museums, cafés and restaurants. Absorbing this unique atmosphere of the town, during your sailboat charter in Phuket, is an experience far removed from a tourist brochure; you will be blown away and charmed by this little town. You can also try traditional Thai cuisine in the street. You can eat for as little as 2 or 3 euros in the street and even sample the famous Pad Thai. The dishes are spicy, flavoursome and perfectly seasoned.
Other sites which you should visit during your sailboat charter in Phuket include: Thai Hua Museum, Hai Leng Ong Statue (the gold dragon monument) and Soi Rommanee. These can be turned into easy stop-offs during your morning adventure.
You may be tired in the afternoon from all the walking and the morning’s activities. After lunch, take refuge upon one of the island’s beautiful, sandy beaches. It’s no mystery that Phuket is known for its dreamy beaches where you can take sunset walks or sunbathe during the day. Admire the amazing landscape or take time to snorkel, swim or dive. There are two beautiful beaches called Freedom Beach and Karon Beach which are located on the west coast. Along the south-west coast, there are two other beaches called Kata Beach and Nai Han Beach which are equally breath-taking.
If you have time or fancy a venture slightly off the beaten track, try to squeeze in a visit to the Sirinat National Park which are 30 kilometres north-west of Phuket and boasts a 13 kilometre stretch of beaches. Some of the beaches which we would recommend in this area: Hat Nai Thon, Hat Nai Yang, Hat Mai Khao and Hat Sai Kaeo.
The humid or hot season extends from mid-March to mid-May, the heat is searing, and the temperatures reach 36 degrees. From mid-May to mid-November is the rainy season. There are often violent storms, but it is always possible to make the most of sunshine hours during this season. The best period to travel and discover Thailand would be between November and February when the temperatures are high, hot sun and warm water. Luckily, you’ll be able to sleep well during your sailboat charter in Phuket because nights stay fresh and cool.
