Phuket Boat Lagoon
Phuket Town Attractions
The Boat Lagoon Phuket, next to Royal Phuket Marina in Koh Kaew was the island's first marina complex. It is surrounded by a group of condominiums, the Boat Lagoon Resort, serviced apartments and restaurants, shops and offices.
Short- and long-term accommodation is available overlooking the marina. It has been fully operational since 1994. This circular, 180-berth lagoon was originally a tidal flat at the head of a shallow, meandering two-mile creek, Klong Tha Rua.
Phuket Boat Lagoon Highlight
The Boat Lagoon Marina features a wide variety of dining options, ranging from a quick lunch or an afternoon treat to a family dinner and an ‘end-of-the-week’ type drinks/party. If you prefer something a little more sophisticated along a marina boardwalk, this is the place to be.
Whether you like Thai, Italian, French, Indian or fresh bread and bakery, you won’t be disappointed here. Among their popular restaurants are La Taverna, Watermark, The Bakery, The Galley, Le Winch and Spice Island.
Eating at a marina doesn’t have to always be pricey. For those who are looking for a quick bite and cheap meal, check out the Deli Coffee Shop by the Marina’s supermarket or the Thai-style food stalls just across the road from it.
