Surin Beach is situated along the west coast of Phuket and is often referred to as ‘Millionaire’s Row’ due to the plush properties that can be observed high in the surrounding hills. There are also quite a number of high-end hotels in the area, which all add to its exclusivity.

North Phuket

Kamala Beach is located north of Patong and is another west coast beach town on Phuket. Once a quiet Muslim fishing village, it still maintains a sense of tranquillity as it is less populated than a lot of areas along the western coastline. This, in fact, makes it very charming and ideal for those who prefer a peaceful environment.

Kata Beach is one of Phuket’s highlights, a stunningly beautiful stretch of white, sandy shore that attracts crowds any time of the year. Its smaller sister beach town of Kata Noi still remains somewhat of a secret to many tourists but is much loved by those who know it.

Chalong

Chalong is mainly a residential and business area (diving), the dwelling choice for many expats, as well as locals. This is due to its ideal location providing easy connections north to Phuket Town, west to Kata Beach, and south to the beach towns of Rawai and Nai Harn.
