About the location

Fondly nicknamed the Pearl of the Andaman, Phuket is Thailand’s largest island and is among the world’s most sought after beach destinations. Connected to the west coast of the mainland by a series of bridges, it’s close to the many nearby tropical paradise islands - in particular, the famous Phi Phi Islands. The way to hop between these islands is with an exhilarating speedboat ride from one island to the other.

The longest of Phuket’s beaches is Mai Khao, unravelling along the coast for 11 km, with parts of the beach sitting within a national park, beautifully underdeveloped and edged with pine and palm trees. Those wanting to explore different beaches are in luck as Phuket is home to more than 30 amazing beaches, although the most popular have always been Patong, Kata (said to be one of the prettiest spots in Phuket), Karon, Kamala and the mystical Phang Nga Bay.
