Phuket, ISa rainforested, mountainous island in the Andaman Sea, has some of Thailand’s most popular beaches, mostly situated along the clear waters of the western shore. The island is home to many high-end seaside resorts, spas and restaurants. Patong, the main town, has a more casual vibe and is filled with wild nightclubs, bars and discos.
Dive sites in Phuket. Pristine corals, critters galore, amazing granite boulders and even the odd wreck or two, are the perfect complements to the fantastic diversity of marine life.
Best Time to Dive
- October – May. Although diving is available in Phuket all year round, the number of liveaboards to Phi Phi Islands and Similan Islands dwindle outside of this period. From June – September, the weather becomes less predictable and visibility drops to only 15m. Nonetheless, 15m in clear turqoise water, framed by white sands and an ever-changing landscape of marine life, is definitely more than what anyone can ask for!
