A few Phuket attractions
Phuket is the largest island in Thailand is one of the most popular tourist locations in the country that has quickly become a booming holiday destination even in the face of recent political and social troubles. Its beauty is unmatched given the many attraction opportunities, and its beaches are the main destinations for people who choose to visit Phuket. The following are just a few of the many beaches in Phuket that you should consider visiting while staying on the large island.
Patong beach is the main resort beach on Phuket and is usually where most people find holiday accommodation. In particular, the beach is known for its wild nightlife so it is well suited for younger travellers and those looking for a great time over families that are travelling together on holiday.
For a quieter family experience, the Nai Thon and Nai Yang beaches are tucked away in the Sirinat National Park and offer a more secluded chance to wonder along the Phuket shoreline while taking in the many scenic views that the island has to offer. It is also a great destination for those on a romantic holiday who want some time out from the crowds for a while.
Cape Panwa is another popular beach to visit for all tourists who travel to Phuket, but not so much for its beach activities as the Phuket Aquarium is located here which offers at least a few hours of entertainment for those who want to see the aquatic life of the region up close.
Those that want to get a little more up close and personal with aquatic life may want to take a quick trip over to the Ko Racha islands where scuba divers and snorkelers delight in the rich life under the sea.
