A Map of Phuket’s best beaches. Thailand Beaches Map
Beaches on the east coast of Phuket island are mainly untidy, unattractive and without decent facilities but alright if you desire isolation and don’t mind sharing the beach with flotsam, jetsam and plastic bags.
Chalong port in Chalong Bay also not a pretty sight and unsuitable for beach lovers due to excessively muddy water but is an important marine hub with a massive pier, customs and immigration facilities, hotels, restaurants, shops, booking kiosks and more.
Yachts, slow ferries, faster long- tail boats and very fast speedboats head out from Chalong Bay to the Phi Phi Islands, scuba diving locations such as the Similan Islands and over to Krabi resorts such as West Railay.
