Great little spot. Catch a boat or 2 across to the islands. Enjoy some food on the tables right on the beach or enjoy some shopping.

Really enjoyed our day trips here and really easy to get to. Great restaurants (so many to chose from) and the beaches are great. Interesting sights there and back with lots of vantage points to stop at. Great part of Thailand.

It is a base for the long boats to get out to the islands but not so good as a beach to visit and relax on the sand.

We went here after the terrible lunch and got some ice cream and sat and relaxed, it was low tide and a lot of the boats were just sitting on the rocks and sand, which kind of looked cool. There is plenty to see all along the beach, and a lot of new health bars and food places to eat... More

Rawai beach and the area is the place to be. Peaceful and so unlike the rest of the island with its bustling tourism and hungry "in your face" sales touts and beggars. You won't find a tuk tuk, mobile street vendor or motorbike taxi here.. It's basically a detached part of the tourist packed island. As well as it is... More

Rawai is away from the main west coast beach culture in Phuket however it is very close to Kata beach. It has working fishermen and a thriving expat community. However it also,attracts many Thai families on the weekend Great place

We hire a scooter every day and we found something new each time...lots of local "secrets" can be found for those who... More
