Rawai Beaches

Rawai is a location situated in Phuket, Thailand. This region is renowned for its stunning beaches, each offering unique experiences and attractions for visitors.

Ya Nui Beach is an unspoiled haven tucked away in a cove flanked by the Windmill Viewpoint and the renowned Promthep Cape. It is further magnified by its adjacent island Koh Man, which can be reached via kayaking expeditions. Rawai Beach is positioned at the southern tip of Phuket Island and is unique for allowing pet owners to bring their furry friends. It is flanked by an ancient village belonging to the "sea gypsies," a once-nomadic and fishing-centric minority community. Nai Harn Beach is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in Phuket, thanks to the Samnak Song Nai Harn monastery that occupies a large portion of the beachfront land. Karon Beach is known for its three-kilometer-long stretch of powdery white sand, clear turquoise waters, and unparalleled views of the Andaman Sea. Lastly, Cape Panwa Beach boasts stunning white powdery sand and an array of luxurious hotels and resorts, with close encounters with local marine life at the nearby Marine Biological Research Center and Phuket Aquarium.
