Sailing

Phuket Tourist Information Guide

Read Introduction

Phuket Island is a world class destination for people sailing across the globe! Sure, Phuket has enough things to do to keep you busy for months, but the fact that it is also in close proximity to other major international destinations like Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia – makes it a no-brainer for sailors to include a stop in Phuket while in the area.

You may know that some sailing adventurists have become famous on YouTube for documenting their travels across the oceans of the world in their sailboats and catamarans. Phuket is a favorite stop for these oceanic nomads because the nightlife, shopping, quality of beaches and friendliness of locals make it a truly first-class international destination.

One of our favorite sailing channel is ‘Sailing SV Delos’ – a couple of brothers and random crew they find along the way as they sail from port to port. The group stopped in Phuket in January of 2016 and had an absolute blast in Patong Beach and some other smaller beaches around the island.

Phuket attracts the ‘big fish’ as well. You can often see mega yachts moored in marinas around Phuket. Some of the more famous people in the world have made Phuket a stop on their journeys.

If you’re so inclined, there are a couple of Superyacht Events happening in Phuket on a yearly basis like the ‘Asia Superyacht Rendevouz’ for one. This is a meetup for ultra-wealthy yacht owners at pristine Mai Khao Beach on Phuket’s northwest shoreline.

Not only are there offices for boat manufacturers and hundreds of used sailing boats for sale in Phuket, but there are also some training facilities if you would like to learn how to sail while visiting the island.

Phuket marinas for sailing boats and catamarans are located in Karon Beach, two in Koh Kaew, and two in Thalang on the Northeast part of Phuket Island.
