Phuket-Town, Rawai Beach: Travel online information direct booking guide for travel, hotel resort, bungalow, room for rent, with photo tours and beach maps, activities diving, scuba, golf, spa, restaurants, entertainment.

Phuket Town (Muang District)

Rawai Beach:
Site of a Chao-Ley or Sea Gipsy village, many restaurants and bungalow, shell handicraft shops, and both fishing and charter boats. The waters are okay for swimming, snorkelling on the reefs off shore. Rawai is 7 kms. west of Chalong Circle.

Prom Thep Cape:

"Prom" is Thai for the Hindu 'Brahma' signifying purity, and 'Thep' means 'God'. Promthep is a headland stretching in to the sea and forming the extreme south-end of Phuket. It has been a prominent feature for mariners since of early seafarers from the sub-continent, remains of whose journey's have been found all along the Malay-peninsula's west coast.
From Rawai Beach turn right and go for 2 kms. The cape has tall criffs on the south, and was formerly called by local villagers 'Laem Jao' (The God's Cape). From the criffs running down to the boulders at the sea is a line of today palm trees. Emerald green currents swirl in the deep water and breakers hurl themselves in vain against the rocky point; it is one of Phuket's most inspiring vistas. In the distance can be seen Koh Gaew. From Promthep Cape, which is the most beautiful place to catch Phuket's famous sunset, a road leads northwest to Nai Harn Beach.

Nai Harn Beach:
A popular swimming beach and yacht anchorage during the dry season. The beach is fine, but big waves strike it during the wet season, making swimming dangerous. Regular bus service to and from Phuket Town during daytime. Nai Harn is just north of Prom Thep.

Sehn Bay:
A small bay with many rocks and corals. Snorkelling and diving are okay, but swimming without a mask could be dangerous among the corals. For sunbathers, this secluded, curving stand north of Nai Harn offers some privacy. A small open air restaurant supplies food and drink. Cheap bungalows are located just west of the beach. To get there go through the parking lot of the Phuket Yacht Club hotel and follow the road to Ao Sehn, about 0.5 km.

View Point:
From this point can be seen the bays of Kata Noi, Kata, and Karon, and also large public sala, or shelter is there for visiotrs, and several vendors sell food, drinks, and souvenirs in the area when weathfer is nice. The viewpoint is between Kata and Nai Harn.

Kata Beach:
The smallest of Phuket's three main tourist beaches, Kata is different in appearance and style from Karon or Patong. The beach itself is broad and curving, and structures bordering it are low-rise. The waters are perfect for swimming, and at the north end is a coral reef with many varied corals and fishes which stretches out toward Koh Poo island, about 0.5 km. off shore. Facilities, for every price range, include hotels, bungalows, tour campanies, restaurants, bars and clubs. Regular bus service to and from Phuket Town during daytime.
