nice protected anchorage and the location of the Phuket Yacht
Club/Meridian Hotel. There actually is no yacht club just the
Meridian high-class expensive resort. The bay is quite isolated from
the central tourist areas and transport to and from can be a
problem, particularly at night. Exercise caution to avoid submerged
rocks at the NW side of the bay.
The Kings Cup races (apart from the
Ko Phi Phi to Nai Harn Race) all start from Nai Harn so the bay is
full (50+) of boats during the Kings Cup week. During this week the
local restaurants and stalls increase their prices up to five times
the normal tourist area prices so provision elsewhere during this
period. Best method to get around is after arrival caught a minibus
to Phuket Town, approx. 20 Km to the north, and rent a scooter for
around USD 5 per day. Small Suzuki 4WD can also be rented for
approx. USD 15 per day. Scooters and cars can be safely parked overnight
in the car park on the edge of the beach. Motor cycle licenses are
not required but the rental companies insist on holding your passport
during the rental period. This can be a problem if you need to cash
travelers cheques where your passport is required. Helmets are
required everywhere however outside Phuket Town most people do not
use them. If two handing and only one helmet available then the
driver must wear the helmet. I did the opposite with my son on the
back and got pinched in Phuket Town. They average a death and 10
serious accidents a day so helmets are highly recommended. Scooter
prices in Phuket Town are cheaper than the major tourist areas, where
prices increase to USD 20 per day during the peak Xmas/New Year
period. When wind gets up (25-35 kts) during this period you can get
bullets off the surrounding hills so anchor setting is important.

next bay up from Kata and much larger than Kata or Patong and therefore
more exposed to wind and swell. Ashore are many good
seafood and European restaurants. Prices both here and Kata are
5-20% cheaper than Patong. Most yachts prefer to anchor at either Patong
This is Phuket's principal boat anchorage and the island's largest bay,

Small bay at
