Cape Panwa is a peninsula stretching out into the Andaman Sea just south of Phuket Town on the amazing tropical Island of Phuket. At the end of the peninsula where it gets noticeably thinner, is located the Cape Panwa Hotel Beach. This is a lovely little soft sand beach covering nearly 300 meters of sandy coast.
The beach has soft sand, but if it wasn’t your private beach while staying at the hotel, you’d probably not think much of it. The beach has rocks throughout much of it, and the shallow bay is filled with rocks that make wading and swimming somewhat dangerous. Snorkeling is possible, but you can find much better beaches for snorkeling on the west side of the island.
Though no beaches in Phuket are supposed to be private, Cape Panwa Hotel Beach is about as close as it gets to a private beach with access limited to shore access from a boat unless staying at the hotel. This beach faces almost due east, so it is perfect for Phuket sunrises.
The Cape Panwa Hotel is mentioned favorably in reviews most often for the attention and friendliness of staff, excellent cuisine, and the very relaxed atmosphere as a contrast to the busy areas of Phuket. The restaurant down close to the water on the beach is especially nice.
For easy access to this virtually barren beach, book a room or villa starting at around 6,300 THB and don’t forget to use your free welcome cocktail drink and free drink at the bar.
