#2 of 11 in Parks in Rawai
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. By using our Rawai day trip planning site , you can arrange your visit to Rawai Beach and other attractions in Rawai.

  • Its a calm and quiet beach. Not crowded at all. Probably not the best beach to go swimming in as alot of boats are harbored there. Never the less, pictures came out amazing.  more »

  • Nice place for photo and walking through a lot of local seafood restaurants, bars and cafe. Looks good at low tide. Can't swim on this beach, but there is a lot of local longtail boats and speedboats here and you can hire its for short (or long) trip to the nearest islands and for fishing.
  • If you love seafood then this is the area for you. Very different from up top but a beautiful spot to get away from the hustle and bustle. Most people call in here when doing the Aquarium. Nice local shops also.
  • Too sunny... It is a port and not a beach. However there are many seafood shops here... You can buy them fresh... There is also a restaurant here where you can choose from the aquarium and cook it. There are many furit shops here as well. If you have to travel to any other islands, this is the correct place but if you are looking for a beach just to enjoy, don't go here...
  • I love this place for the fabulous seafood and beautiful clear sea with shades of blue and turquoise green. Buy your fish/seafood from the market stalls and take across to the restaurants opposite to have it cooked for 100Bht/Kilo. If you walk to the end of the Pier you get great views and often local kids are having fun jumping off the jetty into the sea. You can't visit Phuket and not go to Rawai.
  • Rawai Beach is not a beach to go for a beach experience. Its more of a port for passenger boats. It could be a good place for fresh sea food to buy and/or eat there. Fruits are a common sight across Phuket so this is not a different site. We enjoyed rambutan and some nice ice cream rolls.
