Local Attractions 

Southern Phuket is a great place to explore. There are beautiful beaches off the tourist trail and visitors can experience the local culture of the island. Nai Harn, Rawai and Chalong areas offer convenient access to wide choices of restaurants, supermarkets, fresh bakery shops, butchers and delicatessens, post offices, banks, photo shops, beauty salon, as well as mooring facilities and a boat pier. This charming and tranquil region has a number of attractions and beauty spots to explore such as these detailed below:

 

Nai Harn Lake: Next to the temple on Nai Harn Beach is a large freshwater lake where locals jog and cycle around its perimeter and enjoy the fresh air and natural scenery. This attractive lake has a small island in the center connected by bridge with a grassy area and playground for families to picnic and play. 

 

Ya Nui Beach: Hidden away on the coast road between Nai Harn and Rawai is a small sandy cove - Ya Nui Beach. This is a secluded beach with lovely sand and is good for swimming and snorkeling. A great place to relax and sunbathe away from the crowds and vendors. 

 

Ao Sane Beach: This secluded beach is often missed because it is only accessed by passing through The Nai Harn Hotel which stands on the hillside at the northern end of Nai Harn Beach. Once you have navigated through the property the small road mountain road offers amazing views before reaching the beach. Ao Sane has plenty of shady spots and is serviced by a restaurant and small bungalow resort. The sand is beautiful, the water’s edge is a little rocky but the snorkeling is fantastic.

 

Laem Ka Beach: If travelling south on the main Viset Road to Rawai, there is a small access road on the east side located at the last 7/11 store which leads to the gorgeous Laem Ka Beach. Laem Ka Beach has plenty of shady trees making it ideal for little ones and the sea is great for swimming in high tide. This beach is also used as a drop of point for speedboat tours which does disrupt its tranquility during peak season.

 

Rawai Beach: This is seafood heaven! Along the seafront promenade you are spoilt for choice for fresh local seafood restaurants, a great place to stop and enjoy the views as boats come and go. This is also one of the best places to hire a private boat to take you on an adventure to the local offshore islands.  

 

Sea Gypsy Village: At the eastern side of Rawai Beach is the Sea Gypsy Village, home to indigenous ‘Chao Lay’. It is well worth a visit to support this minority community and to browse the shell shops and fish stalls where the fisherman sell their catch of the day. Just alongside the market there are restaurants that will cook the fish the way you like for a very reasonable price.

 

Promthep Cape: This is the location for the famous picture postcard view of Phuket – the rocky peninsula that is the most southerly point of the island. Promthep Cape has a lighthouse to explore, restaurants and souvenir shops and is a favorite stop for bus tours as tourists gather here at sunset to enjoy the spectacular views. 

 

Chalong Bay: Chalong Bay is a launch point for dive tours and sightseeing day trips to nearby islands and is where many speedboats, yachts and ferries anchor. There are restaurants and bars in the area, plenty of dive shops and a tourist information center.
