Phuket is one of the top destinations in Thailand for people from all over the world, along with other major cities such as Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Thanks to its richness in resources, natural beauty, and cultural diversity, tourists can’t seem to get enough of this unique little island off the western coast of Thailand.
There’s everything for everyone to enjoy, so whether you love lush rainforest adventures, relaxing massages, beautiful beaches, or exciting nightlife, there’s something in Phuket for you! These are all the things that you may be able to find in different places, but not all in one location, which is why Phuket offers such a unique traveling experience.
There’s no other place on the island that encapsulates the combination of activities that make Phuket unique quite as well as Rawai Beach. The unassuming beach in the southern shore of the island has much more to offer than what meets the eye. If you’re planning to visit Rawai Beach during your trip to Phuket, here are all the things that you should do while you’re here:
Ride on a longtail boat
Longtail boats are a type of boat unique to the southern part of Thailand. Having an island hopping tour on one is one of the best experience you can ask for. You will feel the wind blow through your hair while your eyes take in the clear, blue ocean that extends as far as the eye can see. Rawai Beach has many of these longtail boat services where you can start your journey. If you’re not sure where to go or what to do for your longtail boat trip, ask a boatman or a travel agency. They will be able to give you some advice on what you should do.
Plan a snorkeling trip
There are many snorkeling sites around the Rawai Beach area, such as the Promthep Cape. You used to be able to get here on foot or by bike, but the local resorts have prevented passage on these backroads. The safest way to get to the Cape area is by boat.
Take a chartered boat trip
A chartered boat trip is one of the best ways to see the entire southern shore of the island. You can find one that ranges from 1,300 baht to 3,000 baht, depending on the duration and the services that the boat trip offer. You can even find one that offers a diving service that will be out at sea for days. If you’re traveling in season, this is a viable option that you should consider.
Where else should I visit when going to Rawai beach?
Rawai Beach is located near many attractions in Phuket, such as Yu Nui, Nai Harn Beach, and Ao Chalong Bay. All of these locations are within walking distance, so you can make it a beach-hopping day trip.
Phuket is never short of convenience, as you can find many convenient stores, supermarkets, ATMs, and banks all over the city. Additionally, wi-fi is very common, so you won’t have to worry about not being able to contact people back home while you’re on the island.
