Phuket, and her surrounding seas and islands, is perhaps the best known and most popular yachting destination in South East Asia, and for good reason. Stunningly beautiful with a rich diversity of incredible beaches and magnificent underwater landscapes with rainbows of fish, towering limestone formations and, of course, fabulous food.
ABOUT PHUKET YACHT CHARTERS
Located on Thailand’s Andaman coast, Phuket — the largest island in the country — is a dazzling island that offers it all. Pure white sands, aquamarine waters and limestone cliffs await travellers who visit this stunning island. Surrounded by jade-hued ocean this island is a little piece of paradise: the interior is a lush jungly tangle while its 36 beaches shine in a mix of white, cream and gold; and there's a capital city – Phuket Town – packed with character and rich in culture, heavily influenced by its reigning religion: Buddhism.
PHANG NGA BAY
Phang Nga Bay is an area of exceptional natural beauty. With sheer limestone karsts, emerald waters, and an abundance of tropical islands, Phang Nga Bay is one of the most beautiful places in Thailand. Four of the country’s best conservation areas sit close together in Phang Nga province, meaning there is a wealth of natural treasures to enjoy. Above sea level, the bay offers up mountains cloaked in some of the oldest rainforests in the world. Below the water lie some of Thailand’s most outstanding coastal treasures.
RAILAY BEACH, KRABI
Railay Beach is, in fact, a small peninsula which counts four beaches. In just one small peninsula you'll find gorgeous white sand beaches, soaring limestone cliffs, viewpoints, caves and a lagoon hidden inside the cliffs, shaped and fed by the changing tides. All within walking distance! At Railay there are no roads; only footpaths. No buses, no cars, just longtail boats. Although it's actually connected to the mainland, the spectacular Phra Nang Peninsular is effectively cut off from the rest of Krabi by limestone headlands and steep jungle valleys; the only access is by sea.
KOH PHI PHI
With their curvy, bleached beaches and stunning jungle interiors, Phi-Phi Don and Phi-Phi Leh – collectively known as Ko Phi-Phi – are the darlings of the Andaman Coast. Phi-Phi Don is a hedonistic paradise where visitors cavort by day in azure seas, eat the freshest of seafood in the many restaurants and party all night on the soft sand. In contrast, smaller Ko Phi-Phi Leh is undeveloped and hotel-free, its coral reefs and crystal-clear waters overseen by soaring, jagged cliffs.
KOH ROK NOK
Brilliant white-sand beaches, crystal-clear water, vast coral reefs and metre-long monitor lizards: welcome to Ko Rok and Ko Rok Nok. Protected as part of Mu Ko Lanta National Park, these twin islands are some of the most beautiful in Thailand’s Andaman Sea. These islands are just 250m apart and separated by a crescent-shaped bay surrounded by coral reefs. Only frequented by the National Park Rangers, the gorgeous isles are uninhabited hence the beaches are pristine with powder white sands and the water crystal-clear. Plunge into the crystal waters, and explore the coral gardens, watching for marine life like angelfish, pufferfish, moray eels, and, if you’re lucky, sea turtles.
Once the domain of sea gypsies, Lanta has morphed from a luscious Thai backwater into a getaway for visitors who come for the divine miles-long beaches and nearby dive spots of Hin Daeng, Hin Muang and Ko Haa. Charming Lanta is flatter than surrounding islands; an island paradise without the crowds. Explore idyllic beaches, Kong Nin and Kantiang Bay are the two main stretches. Best accessed by yacht, a few beaches beyond Kantiang is the most remote swathe of sand – anchor opposite and enjoy the water sports toys.
