Known as the ‘Pearl of the Andaman’, Phuket is famous for its long sandy beaches and buzzing nightlife. Linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway, it’s easy to forget you are surrounded by water on this huge island. From secluded beach resorts to luxury lodgings right in the heart of the action, there’s something for everyone here.
The weather in Phuket is generally at its best from October through to early May. The summer months can see increased rainfall, particularly July to September and this tends to be when the seas are rougher and the beaches are narrower. However, this can be compensated by the lower hotel rates and extra value offers - ask us for details. The weather during the months of May and early June is usually good, with bright sunny days but sometimes heavy showers.
Bang Tao Bay
Bang Tao is a large open bay with one of Phuket’s longest beaches. Luxurious resorts can be found along the four mile
stretch of beach just a few minutes away from the town of Cherng Talay where local restaurants can be found.
A lively alternative to the happy chaos of Patong Beach, Karon Beach holds its own with plenty of restaurants and bars to keep you entertained. The long golden beach leads to some of the best snorkelling and diving spots on the island.
Phang Nha Bay
Defined by sheer limestone karsts that rise vertically from the emerald water, this bay is home to quiet beaches and the famous James Bond Island.
Big and busy, Patong Beach is the beating heart of Phuket’s famous nightlife. The perfect place to party and play, the streets are crowded and exciting, while the luxurious hotels and resorts provide respite for when you’re done with the day.
