Kamala Beach

Kamala Beach Phuket one of Phukets pristine beaches, Kamala beach is located just south of Surin Beach. One thing about the northern beaches, they generally dont get the high concentration of tourists as do the southern Phuket beach line does. Kamala beach is also another place I like to do distance swims, my main entry point is on the southern end of the beach and from there I head north to my exit point.

Kamala beach reminds me very much on what most of Phuket was like over 25 years ago, its relatively undeveloped, you can rent a bungalow near the beach cheap, plenty of small seaside restaurants to choose from and of course you dont really have the crowds, no matter what season it is.

During the low season Kamala beach is often only has a few tourists on the beach, some business establishments even close down this part of the season so, if you visit Phuket during the low season, you can count on not traveling to a crowded beach.

The surf can also get a little bit rough during the monsoon season, so please take extra caution when doing any type of water activity during this part of the year. If you are looking for great places to eat, no problem, you can find numerous seaside restaurant locations all up and down this great beach.

So please don’t forget to visit Kamala Beach during your next trip to Phuket, you’ll be glad you did.

Rawai Beach

Rawai Beach Phuket is located on the eastern side of Phuket Island, the eastern shore beaches are not the best to swim in, I often, about once a week head down to Chalong pier and swim the length of the beach, the water is very clean and I would recommend it to any beach goers.

One of the most beautiful sites on Phuket is the Thai fishing boats, when you arrive to Rawai, you will be amazed at all the beautiful fishing boats anchored in the water, during sunrise the view could not be more pristine, be sure to bring your camera, you will get some excellent Rawai bay shots with the surrounding islands in the background, I believe if you kept at it enough you could probably get some good post card material camera shots here, it really is that beautiful.

You will find a great variety of seaside restaurants along Rawai, one of the best is located on the North end of the beach; Nikitas which has been around a long time and the setting is the best in Rawai. So during your time in Phuket, take a ride down to Rawai, explore the many different restaurants, walk along the Chalong pier, you will truly enjoy this area of Phuket.

Yanui Beach

yanui-beach-300-200Want to go to a really secluded beach? You can find this seclusion right on Yanui Beach Phuket, this small beautiful Phuket beach is just south of Nai Harn beach tucked away between Promthep Cape and the wind power station, just take road 4233 and you will run right into it.

One thing I like about this beach is there is a small island not too far out, I have swam to this island a few times and it is a very beautiful swim, the last few times I have been to this beach I have been the only person. During the high season Yanui beach traffic picks up some, but for the most part not too many folks use it.
When you are driving any of the roads south of the island just be careful, the roads are very windy.

Nai Harn Beach

One of my favorite beaches in Phuket is Nai Harn beach; Nai Harn beach is located on the southern point of Phuket. One of my best swim routes is up at Nai Harn, I love to swim out to the small islands just off the beach, and just the joy of being in the water and seeing the beautiful marine life really is a sensational feeling. If you like to do long swims, just be cautious during the monsoon season, the surf can get pretty rough.

Another favorite activity of mine is body boarding and Nai harn is one of the best locations to do this sport, the surf is excellent most of the time; so bring your body board or surf board. If you like to just lounge around on the beach, Nai Harn is an excellent choice, it really never gets that busy and you dont have that crowded feeling when you are here, so please enjoy! You will love it here!

If you’re looking for a place to eat around the beach area there are plenty of places that serve good Thai and seafood, and of course not far away is the town of Nai harn and you will find plenty of places to eat around the town area.

The biggest resort located on Nai Harn Beach is the Royal Phuket Yacht club; inside this resort they have a nice little Fusion restaurant the Regatta, we have dined there a few times and the place is wonderful, you really get a good view of Nai Harn beach from this location.
