Hopping and snorkeling

The tropical waters of the Andaman Sea are ideal for snorkeling – clear, calm, balmy and bursting with brilliant marine life. Snorkeling can be done year-round in Phuket, but the best time of year is November-April when the sea’s at its most placid. Take care through the May-October low season, when the undertow can become dangerously strong along the west coast. The warm water temperature (27-28°C) means that snorkelers don’t need to wear wetsuits, though wearing a t-shirt is advised to prevent sunburn. At some beaches, it is possible to rent snorkeling gear for the day, though it may not be of great quality. Many shops around the island sell a range of masks, snorkels, and fins.




Scuba diving

Want to learn to dive, or simply to upgrade your skills? Phuket is a great place to achieve your PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) certificate.


As surfing is not a major sporting pastime in Phuket there are relatively few places to rent boards or to receive surfing lessons but the best bet for the aspiring surfer is to head over to Kata Beach.
