We got a taxi over to Rawai for the fish market. Only a 20 minute drive from Kata Noi with amazing views and glimpses of local life. Took a walk along the pier where we saw the locals fishing and some cute kids playing games and dancing around. Once the sun set, not that you fully see it from here,... More

Rawai beach is clean and quiet . I think teh best feature are the restaurants on the side of the road where you can sit at a low table and eat fresh seafood while looking out over the ocean . there are some decent bars and restaurants across from the beach also which are not crazy busy but still fun

Fishermans beach for certain, as pointed out by our driver. We had inly a short stop here after the Phrom Thep Cape and woild have liked to have spent more time. Great for watching people in action all the same.

Nice scenery, beautiful sight of the nearby islands And the longtails boats. Unfortunally the beach is not good for swimming

We actually found parking, a minor miracle. The biggest problem was vehicles continually driving down the only walking path available. Very nice that shop-owners didn't come out and grab us like they do a Koh Tapu.

We went to the beach in the morning where there are less people on the beach. Like most of the popular beaches in Phuket, we like the white sandy beach and great Ocean view. Nice and relaxing beach to go compared to the busy beaches at Patong.

Not the best beach I have ever been to but the people are lovely and there are numerous market stalls that are extremely cheap - find a bargain is no problem at all!

We hired a scooter in Patong and rode to Rawai every day for lunch. We loved the atmosphere of the fish market, where fresh fish is hauled in every day and kept alive in huge plastic tubs. You wander along the dirty old road with the shanty style stalls selling their fish for prices that you can barter for. Fish... More
