Update 2013 – There is a novel page on the spider web log well-nigh Rawai Beach. The post service hither was from 2007.
Rawai beach is flora on the southward side of Phuket, betwixt Chalong Bay as well as Phromthep Cape. It’s non a swimming beach really, as well as in that location are solely a few accommodation options unopen yesteryear (such equally the Evason Resort, only to the due east of Rawai). What y’all tin discovery in that location inwards profusion are small-scale beachside restaurants alongside foot-high tables on the beach, generally no to a greater extent than than shacks selling grilled fish, crab, chicken. You sit down on a mat on the flooring as well as swallow uncomplicated nutrient yesteryear the sea. There used to move only a few of these places a few years back, straight off one-half the beach is covered inwards them. When nosotros stopped on Sun it was really busy too..mostly local people. In fact I don’t shout out upwards I saw a unusual face. There are another restaurants unopen to which get got discovered chairs as well as tables as well as the foreigners create tend to swallow at these. But for a local sense of savour – sit down on the floor! Also y’all discovery a fair release of small-scale bars as well as adept dining yesteryear the beach such equally the long-popular Nikitas Bar, a British owned bar/restaurant which has been in that location since earlier fourth dimension began!
Aside from the restaurants y’all tin discovery multitudes of boats at Rawai – y’all tin rent boats hither to Koh Lone, Koh Bon, Koh He (Coral Island), Racha Yai as well as more. We create intend to depository fiscal establishment gibe out Koh Bon 1 day, as well as I shout out upwards the boats hither volition get got people circular to Koh Kaew also – a small-scale isle off Phromthep Cape alongside a golden Buddha on the beach. (update 2013 – yes, nosotros did this trip a few years agone : Boat from Rawai beach to Koh Kaew Yai / Buddha Island)
At the far due east terminate of the beach y’all discovery a fiddling angling community alongside a daily marketplace position selling fresh fish as well as prawns. There are also some “touristy” stalls selling shells as well as other such souvenirs of the sea. The marketplace position is small-scale but gives an thought of the former mode of life. Phuket nevertheless has many angling communities unopen to the coast despite the tourism that has taken over many of the western beaches. We bought some fish as well as I took a few photos. (update 2013 – in that location are straight off a bunch of restaurants in that location yesteryear the fish market, hence y’all tin purchase fresh fish as well as hence get got it to a eatery where they volition laid upwards it for you).
The Southwest corner of Phuket is corking for small-scale beaches, views, seafood as well as a combat of peace as well as quiet. You tin see Rawai, swallow at Kan Eang ii Seafood inwards Chalong, teach the stance at Phromthep Cape, halt at Ya Nui beach, teach the sunset at the Kata Viewpoint. If y’all teach the thought – it’s a prissy expanse of Phuket! Sumber https://jamie-monk.blogspot.com
