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).
