Justly famous as one of the world’s premier tropical beach destinations, Phuket blends extraordinary natural beauty with superb tourism facilities to ensure the perfect vacation in the sun. Against a backdrop of green hills, the west coast of what is Thailand’s largest island is blessed with a string of magnificent beaches and coves bathed by the clear blue waters of the Andaman Sea.

It is the kind of place where tired cliches like “idyllic” and “pristine” take on fresh meaning, with beaches displaying the characteristic qualities of the Andaman coast: soft, fine, white sand, warm, clear water and lush, tropical greenery spilling onto the shore. Providing a dramatic backdrop to the most beautiful locations are rust-hued cliffs, some soaring to 1,000 feet.

Blessed with clear turquoise water, magnificent coral reefs, and an exceptional diversity of marine life, Thailand is frequently referred to as ‘the diver’s heaven.’
