PHUKET AND SURROUNDINGS
On Phuket, you’ll find more than 30 beaches, many of which are difficult to access on land. Hiring a private yacht in Phuket allows you to find unspoilt spots and the island’s hidden treasures. Your boat can also take you to many tropical paradises just a short sail from Phuket, which includes popular spots like Ko Phi Phi, where the movie The Beach was set, and you avoid the crowds if you use a luxury yacht charter in Phuket. James Bond Island is another famous movie location that’s just a 90-minute boat ride away, or you can visit the unique floating village of Koh Panyi. When you travel independently, it’s much easier to go off the beaten track and see amazing sights.
The Racha Islands are another spot to consider if you want to enjoy fishing, snorkelling and more. Just a short sailing from Phuket, it has white sand beaches and seas full of tuna, dolphinfish and more. If you’re new to scuba diving, head to Coral Island, AKA Koh Hae. It is surrounded by calm seas that make for easy diving, and as the island’s name suggests, it has coral reefs full of beautiful marine life. When you’re on your own yacht, you aren’t stuck dealing with other peoples’ schedules. You can decide where and when you want to travel, and even stop along the way for a swim or some snorkelling if you wish. A private yacht charter in Phuket lets you make your most of your time on the island. You can choose a crewed charter, with a team who take care of all the sailing, or you can hire a boat that you sail yourself, which is great for groups who want privacy and want to go at their own speed.
