Apartments for rent in Rawai Beach, Phuket, Thailand
apartments for rent in southern Phuket are in the popular area of
Rawai Beach, at the south end of Phuket, between Chalong Bay and
Rawai holds the enviable distinction of being the very first tourist
beach on Phuket. Years ago, people from Phuket Town would drive the
17km down the dirt road to Rawai on weekends to spend the afternoon
underneath the beach's magnificent casuarina trees, rather than
endure the tortuous drive over the hill to Phuket's west coast.
Nowadays Rawai is a working beach, and a busy launching point for
day boat excursions out to Phuket's many surrounding islands.
Longtail boats and speed boats are available for hire on the beach,
where you can arrange a trip to Coral Island, Koh Lone or Racha
Island, or a fishing or snorkel trip. The beach is also used as a
mooring point for the many fishermen who live in the area.
Rawai is home to the the five-star resorts Evason, Vijitt and
Mangosteen and quite a few of Phuket's foreign expat population live
in the area, giving a laid-back flavour to the way of life there.
Although it is possible to swim at Rawai beach, many Rawai residents
and visitors are there to enjoy the plentiful Thai food beachside
restaurants, and the friendly local bars.
You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out in Rawai, with
plenty of culinary options available. You can enjoy amazing,
authentic Italian food at Meggi and Mario’s, exquisite French
cuisine at Bleu et Blanc or a good ole burger at Don’s Café. If you
fancy a fondue, there’s the German-run Rainforest Garden, or for
ardent carnivores, there's always Norbu's Steakhouse.
For a quiet
drink a few feet from the sea, the ever-popular Nikita’s Bar is the
perfect spot, or if you’re looking for something more lively,
Freedom Bar is just down the road.
While providing plenty of amenities for residents and visitors to
enjoy, Rawai doesn’t lose the feeling of being very much a ‘Thai’
