Rawai Beach, Rawai

3.5
#3 of 9 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. To visit Rawai Beach and get the most from your holiday in Rawai, create itinerary details personal to you using our Rawai tour planner.

    Very good place for a walk or to eat some seafood. Not too crowded and very beautiful, Rawai Beach is perfect to walk or to spend time far from tourists. You can easily meet fishers taking care of their boats, and observe the fishers'life. A must to see

    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.

    Not crowded at all with limited activities. But the view from here is awesome.

    The beach is not great for swimming. However, it is great for boat rides, and great places to eat.

    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

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.
