Your first time in Phuket can be quite daunting. It's a big island - Thailand's largest - and there's so much to see and do. How do you make sure that you don't miss out on the best bits? To answer this question, we've created these Phuket survival guides. Each one breaks down the huge amount of information we have for the popular parts of the island to just the essentials. They list just the absolute must-see places, must-try restaurants and our personal favourite hotels.
Each of our guides of what to do and where to stay in Phuket is based on years of personal experience. We want you to have the best possible time on your holiday, so we're using everything we've learnt in decades of living here to provide you with concise guides to each of Phuket's best beaches. Take a look at the links below to first choose which beach suits you, then see what it has to offer.
We try to provide free information that is as up-to-date and accurate as possible. However, if you are planning to travel it's a good idea to double check specific dates and information to avoid surprises.
