Sailing from Phuket on a Private Boat Charter

Sailing in Thailand’s paradise island

Phuket offers something for everyone; from luxury resorts, great golf and bumping nightlife; to beaches, scuba diving and hidden tropical islands. The perfect tropical playground to enjoy sailing in Thailand.

It’s often said that Phuket is Thailand in microcosm. The hilly jungle interior is fringed with pristine white sand beaches, sleepy villages and enough islands to keep an explorer busy for a lifetime. So it’s no surprise that when looking for a great place to go sailing in Thailand, many flock to Phuket for their boat charter.

The island of Phuket attracts from visitors from all over the world, with it’s attractive climate and easygoing lifestyle. And if you’ve ever been, it’s easy to see why this is such an attractive destination for luxury travelers and budget backpackers alike.

But if you’ve spent a few days on the beach, and had more than a couple of late night parties in Patong, what else is there to do in Phuket? 

 

Sailing in Phuket

Surrounded by countless tropical islands, Phuket is one of the best places in Thailand for sailing. The island of Phuket itself offers plenty of hidden gems, best discovered aboard your Sailo yacht charter. But, if you want to set sail and explore the Andaman Sea coastline, you’ll find lots of choice. You might even find your dream deserted tropical island!

 

World class scuba and snorkelling

Wherever you’re going with a Phuket boat charter, make sure you’re bringing a snorkel mask! Below the waters there is always lots going on, especially around the nearby islands. Although you can reach plenty of great snorkelling spots from the beach, with your Sailo yacht rental in Phuket, you’ll be able to find those hidden gems that you can boast about when you get back on shore! 

 

Sailing from Phuket with a boat charter is also very affordable. Take a look on Sailo, you might be surprised how you can go boating in Thailand on a budget!

The Koh Yao Islands

While the pace of life in Phuket is relatively modern, over on Koh Yao, life is largely as it has been for centuries. Koh Yao Noi is the smaller, and more developed, of the two islands. But both offer unspoiled beaches, hiking trails and great scuba and snorkel opportunities. Bear in mind there is presently no ATM on the islands, although there are shops and hotels. So make sure to bring some spare Baht to stock up on supplies when sailing your boat charter from Phuket.

Khao Phing Kan aka James Bond Island

phuket-boat-charter-phang-nga-bay-james-bond-island

Cue the theme tune. Khao Phing Kan was the setting for ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’, but today it draws tourists for its gravity defying rock formations. The island itself is found in Phang Nga bay among a cluster of many other islands. James Bond island is quite small and the beach perhaps too busy for a quiet day sunning yourself, but if you’re sailing in Thailand with a Phuket boat charter, it is a must see…

Koh Phi Phi and "The Beach"

private-phuket-boat-charter-phi-phi-islands-thailand

The Phi Phi islands have long been a draw for backpackers, and today they are one of the most popular spots for visitors to Thailand. The famous Maya Bay, on the smaller Phi Phi Li, was once the setting for the Leo DiCaprio movie, ‘The Beach’. Although Maya Bay is closed to visitors until at least 2021, the nearby Pileh lagoon is still open and is arguably as beautiful as it’s famous neighbour. Visiting the Phi Phi islands with a catamaran or sailboat charter from Phuket gives you the freedom to find your own slice of paradise!
