Beach
“Surin is another great beach to visit. Only 5.6km away and the next bay north. The waters here are generally beautiful most of the year round. It can get quite busy during the high season though so be prepared for big crowds. Definitely worth a look if you have your own transportation or passing through. ”

Beach
“Choeng Thale (often spelt as Cherngtalay) is a very beautiful part of Phuket's west coast, incorporating Bangtao, Pansea and Surin beaches. It's an area of stark contrasts, with a parade of 5-star hotels along the beachfronts just a few minutes' walk away from the town, where many villagers still make their living as their ancestors did – by fishing, farming and rubber tapping. Taking up a huge area in the middle of Bangtao Beach, Laguna Phuket is one of Asia's largest resort complexes. Pansea Beach is as close to a private beach as you'll find in Thailand, being dominated by just a couple of highly exclusive hotels. In the far north of Cherngtalay, Layan Beach remains undeveloped and showcases natural beach beauty.”

Golf Course
“Our family goes to this mini golf overtime we are in Phuket. You can play as many rounds as you like for 500baht/adults & 300baht/kids and you will get a free drink thrown in too! The food (Thai classics & cracking pizzas) is well priced and the service under Swedish owners beyond reproach. Happy hour (15% discount for F&B) 5-7pm every day. We would recommend visiting in the evenings from 6pm as it can be too hot during the day.”
