Dine on fresh grilled seafood straight off the boat at Rawai Beach. Fisherman and tour boats alike use the beach as a launching point for day trips to the surrounding islands. The busy boat traffic don't create the best environment for swimming and sunbathing, but the cheerfully painted boats make for a pleasant stroll along the waterfront.

Where to stay in Rawai

A long-established beach resort, Rawai offers eclectic sleeping options along the eastern coast of the peninsula. Head right up to the beach for attractively designed resort hotels, rental condominiums, and spa hotels, charging relatively high prices for their extensive views and easy access to beaches and boat tours. Away from the coastline you can find similar resort-style accommodations, with lower prices and a little more privacy. Other budget-friendly options include rental bungalows and basic hotels.

  • A MUST VISIT PLACE If you are visiting Phuket and like fresh seafood, you have to go to Rawai seafood market. It is located at Rawai beach in a sea Gypsy village. It is a one street market one side of the street have the back to the ocean the have a lot of shops selling fresh seafood. At the other side of the street, there is restaurants where they, for a little fee, prepare your freshly bought seafood in your favorite style. I have visited many times and have never been disappointed. I also recommend, friends visiting Phuket to give it a try, and it is a "winner" every time.
  • Nice working beach with fishing boats everywhere -- not really to go swimming but to have a nice and reasonably priced seafood dinner with beautiful view
  • Beautiful beach, many fishing boats nearby and dining options too. Local people like to exercise and walk to end of pier in morning.
  • avoid at all times, 100% tourist trap. dont believe all the fake reviews by local guides!!
  • Beautiful beach with a lot of fishing boats and many restaurants. Not for swimming though.
