Emerald Bay

Phuket Beaches - West


This rather quiet and isolated beach, behind a mountain at the south of Patong, is a relief from the crowded beaches, even after the development of a brand new luxurious hotel just a few hundred meters away, it's quite a beautiful place to relax and get away from the busy Patong, yet so near. there is a one or two local restaurants here, that serves food and beverages. Even if the coral in the water somewhat limits the swimming, and putting your feats down, it's truly one of the better getaways on the island.

There are further 6 subdistrict municipalities ( thesaban tambon ) - Karon, Thep Krasattri, Choeng Thale, Ratsada, Rawai and Wichit. The non-municipal areas are administrated by 9 tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
