Phuket W coast (Thaïland)

Characteristics

Description

During the NE Monsoon Season (December to April) the bays on the west side of Ko Phuket offer excellent protection from the daily E/NE winds.
While anchoring in all bays care must be taken to make sure you set your anchor well in the hard sand.
We dragged twice, once at Patong Beach and once at Nai Harn, using our 20 Kg CQR. Because of this we set two anchors, the CQR and our 5 Kg Danforth, and had no trouble after doing this. In fact the Danforth turned out to be the best for these conditions.
All bays have a very gradual slope with 3-5 meters approximately 200 meters offshore.
