Emerald Bay

Phuket Beaches - West


This rather quiet and isolated beach, behind a mountain at the south of Patong, is a relief from the crowded beaches, even after the development of a brand new luxurious hotel just a few hundred meters away, it's quite a beautiful place to relax and get away from the busy Patong, yet so near. there is a one or two local restaurants here, that serves food and beverages. Even if the coral in the water somewhat limits the swimming, and putting your feats down, it's truly one of the better getaways on the island.

The name Phuket (of which the ph sound is an aspirated p) is apparently derived from the word bukit in Malay which means "hill", as this is what the island appears like from a distance.
