Chalong Bay Activities

What to Do in Chalong Bay

In the minds of many, Chalong Bay is rigidly associated with water sports and all things nautical. True, many people depart from Chalong Pier to visit beautiful Phang Nga Bay or to do some island hopping as well as diving and snorkeling. But in fact the area has lots of interesting land-based things to do, from elephant trekking to golf, not to mention sports like go-karting, wall climbing as well as shooting and paintball.

These latter sports take place inside a single venue called the Phuket Shooting Range. With the development of the range over the years, Chalong has made its name as a leading destination for challenging and exciting games and activities.
