The beach and village Rawai (Rawai Beach) located in the South of Phuket on the Eastern side of the island (Rawai beach on the map). Despite the loud name "the beach", it is not necessary to perceive this area as a place for a beach holiday. Yes, the beach here really is, but swimming here is impossible. The whole coast here was chosen by the fishing and pleasure boats, with the purity of the sand, no one was watching, and even local people here rarely climbs into the water. Deckchairs in order to sunbathe here. However...

The area though is the village, with one of the developed tourist areas in the South of Phuket. Through the area, right along the shore, pass a busy ring road, and therefore, along it is lined with small shops and stalls, cafes and bars, and hotels. There is even a night club Blue Marina Discotheque. The calling card of the area are restaurants with fresh seafood and in the North, the area ends with a large seafood market where you can buy them and ask that you have prepared them. Prices in the market at first glance does not seem low, but you have to bargain. And are fond of martial arts there are two training camps for Thai Boxing.

Although the beach is Rawai beach, and no, this place is still popular with tourists, especially independent. The reason for that, the convenient area, close to other beautiful beaches of South Phuket (Nai Harn and Yanui) where there is no infrastructure. By staying in a hotel in this area can be located away from the hustle and bustle of the filled batch tourist popular areas, and have at hand everything you need to relax. If it's to nearby beaches on a rented transport or taxi. By the way, here is no problem and inexpensive to rent a motorbike, unlike other areas in the far South of Phuket. And this is one of the places on the island where you can catch a pleasure boat on the nearest Islands for excellent snorkeling.

Access to the beach Rawai is not only for taxi, but taxi songthaew from the centre of Phuket Town (see Parking taxis in Phuket town) for 40 baht (see currency of Thailand and the exchange rate).

Phuket of course all the beaches are beautiful ) And, of course, on who is looking )
If you like to go to Nightclubs, bars and restaurants, and you arrived at the Phuket fun - definitely your choice should fall to Patong.
If you come with your family and for the Sea, and do not plan to take the car - then, of course, Karon or Kata. But they are also the most touristic.
If you want the opposite of quiet rest, and what would you no one bothered, then Patong or Mai Khao. On the beautiful beach of Panwa, AO Yon, on Mai Khao beach with bathing worse. Yes, the beach is sandy but very large depth and the waves can be, even in high season.
If you want everything at once, and that would be less tourists, and whatever the club was, and still restaurants not bad, the Surin or Bang Tao. But firstly it is expensive areas, and secondly, will already be hard without a car.
Well, everyone's favorite Nai Harn beach. Only by car or bike, the beach is beautiful, live mostly winterers and expats. The infrastructure is good, almost all Thais in Russian learned to speak. restaurants are generally not considered.
Nai Thon and Nai Yang is also perfect for a family holiday. Serene sandy beaches, very beautiful. Minus in poor infrastructure areas. Very limited choice of shops and restaurants. But if you lie on the sand arrived - you here :)
Well, the last one in the list, but only because it is not clear what to attribute - Kata Noi. Beautiful sandy beach in a very picturesque place. Of the minuses - no budget accommodation, expensive hotels, and to the same Kata, with its infrastructure, you still have to go :( But the beach luxurious, and not too busy with tourists. ...

Hi, I need advice. Want to come to Phuket for excursions to the Islands (Similan Islands, Krabi, Phi Phi, etc.), beaches like Patong, Kata etc. is not needed.
Then I better stay in Phuket town or did you choose these beaches? To make it faster and more convenient to reach the Islands from the hotel given the fact that travel will pick up from your hotel on the tour. ...

Stay in Patong, there is the whole life, the travel Agency, and from there all going on the tour. It is unlikely for someone going to Phuket town ...

You really are all the same where to stop because anyway during the tour, the bus will collect tourists from all over the island and faster does not work. Only in the South does not recommend (Nai Harn), from there you will be picked up early and come home to you after all. Patonga Yes, from the point of view of logistics, not quite bad. ...

If long-term stay, then it is to be away from the crowds. ...
