5 Best Snorkelling Beaches in Phuket
The best places to snorkel in Phuket are often found a short distance from some of the island’s 36 fantastic beaches, making them conveniently accessible and making snorkelling a great addition to a relaxing day by the sea. That does not mean that all 36 offer the same perfect clear waters and wondrous marine habitats, however, which is why we have compiled this list of the 5 Best Snorkelling Beaches in Phuket.
These are the places where you can drift past anemones, parrot fish, various types of coral and the dancing shafts of golden sunlight. Take a deep breath and kick down the few short metres to take a closer look at this rarely-seen underwater world, which is easily explored thanks to Phuket’s warm and clean waters, its lively marine ecosystems and these five fantastic beaches.
Thao Thepkasattri-Thao Sri Suntorn Festival
Thao Thepkasattri-Thao Sri Suntorn Festival or Thao Thep Festival is one of the island’s major festivals and covers many cultural and sporting activities. The festival features bicycle racing, a takraw (volleyball played with the feet) tournament, a tug o’ war, a mini-marathon as well as an ‘uppasombot moo’ (Buddhist ordination) ceremony.
The festival lasts for about two weeks and takes place in March to commemorate victory over the Burmese army led by Phuket’s ‘two heroines’. The event takes place in various locations in Thalang area, north of Phuket including Heroines’ Monument and Wat Pranangsang.
