Ao Chalong bay (Thaïland)

Characteristics

Description

This is Phuket's principal boat anchorage and the island's largest bay, 11 kilometres south of the town.
It is very picturesque but not suitable for swimming.
Boats can be chartered to go to some small island south of Phuket.

The best anchorage is on the north end of the bay just off a resort. The whole bay has a muddy shore a with the 2 m tides shore access can be messy. The local boat club has constructed a "jetty" which can be used for a small monthly fee to tie up the dingy.

This is the main departure point for the many diving and cruise boats so early mornings and late afternoon get very busy.
