|Phuket Island, frequently called the Pearl of
the Andaman Sea with its 530 sq km of unsurpassed beauty is the largest
island in Thailand and is located at the South West of Thailand.
A mountain chain bisects the island north to south. On the western side lie the dazzling white beaches of Bang Tao, Patong, Kamala, Karon, Kata and Nai Harn with all manner of resort accommodations.
Rounding Cape Prom Thep at the southern point you encounter the working beach of Rawai where the longtails, speedboats and some fishing boats anchor.
Coming up the sheltered eastern coast first is Chalong Bay where many yachts berth, then on up to Phuket Bay where the pier from which you catch the ferries to destinations within Phang-nga Bay is located. Phuket Town is located in this bay.
Heading further north up the eastern side of the island are Sapam and Po Bays, also yacht harbors. From this side you can look east and see many of the islands Phang Nga Bay is famous for.
