Not worth visiting
Jul 2019
The Chalong pier is home to day trip charter companies then operate speed boats, diving and snorkeling boats to surrounding islands in Phuket.

It’s extremely busy during high season with unbelievable loads of noisy tourist who go out on day trips.

The pier are in poor and sometimes dirty condition which creates a bad impression to visitors. There is entrance fee for bikes, cars to go to the end of the pier from where boats depart.

Custom clearance for yachts and boat service is available here which is the positive but anchorage around can be dodgy to find.

If you not going on a day trip not worth visiting for sight seeing. Save your time for other activities.

Not worth a visit, really

A place to go if you're catching a boat, otherwise nothing but a long concrete jetty! Area seems quite run-down, apart from a couple of expensive restaurants.

Avoid at all Cost

This place is a disaster. The crowds are too much. The boats are unsafe. The packed buses transporting people to boats are dangerous. The reports online of accidents are numerous. We boarded a boat, traveled a short distance and immediately insisted on being returned due to unsafe boat conditions. My observation was reinforced when I read a news article stating over half of all boats in Chalong Pier were cited for safety violations.

Royal Phuket Marina is a much safer place with western type safety standards. One visit to Chalong was enough to scare me away for good.

Long pier
Nov 2017 • Family
Three quarters of a mile long with stunning views of Big Buddha high above. You can see many boats along the walk and can always take the bus back if the walk up to the end was too much. Great views of some of the islands right across to Cape Panwa and evenings are best when it is a bit cooler. Perhaps eat first at the best restauarant in Phuket next to the pier...Kan Eang...with very fresh seafood and great Thai food albeit a little expensive but worth evry penny for top quality dining next to the water.

Too Crowded

There's a lot of traffic getting to the jetty as the road is under construction. If you are taking your boat trip from here, make sure you allow extra time for the congestion.

A sea of faces
Feb 2018 • Couples
We were dropped off at the pier to spend two nightd on an islandi called knoll lon, we made a mistake of taking a longboat with a man who approached us, and asked for 1800bhat, the hotel did say that s man from thier hotel would be there to take us. So be careful not to be taken in when a man approaches you, make sure the man is from your hotel......

Place For Evening Stroll
Feb 2018 • Family
Here is a place for an evening stroll before or after dinner if you are staying near. Daytime can be too crowded as well as the weather issues: too hot, too wet etc

Bee hive of activity
Dec 2016
We went to Chalong Jetty twice. Once for an evening walk around the area and all the way down to the end of the jetty and another day to reach our fishing boat. Hive of activity as there are always lots of people getting to and off their boats. Ferry service running up and down the pier and it's a nice evening walk where the locals use it as a jogging track. Lovely sunset views and photo taking opportunities.

Not too much to offer to be honest. Just a by the way place. The sunset is nice and you can grab a few shots of the boats.
