You want peace and quiet on your holiday, so you're looking for a place to get away from it all. Don't look much further than Panwa Beach, an expanse of natural beauty on Phuket, Thailand. It's the island as it once was, rustic and isolated, where your walk by the ocean is disturbed only by the occasional fisherman's hut or restaurant attached to the local Panwa Beach accommodation.
Things to Do in Panwa Beach
Most Panwa Beach hotels set you up in Cape Panwa, where relaxation is the name of the game. The beach itself is made of rocky sand and shaded by a nearby mangrove swamp. Rent a boat to take a short trip to Koh Lone Island, where you can get a massage, go elephant trekking or do a little snorkelling. It's only a few minutes from Panwa, so you can easily make it there and back in a day.
Back at Panwa, experience sea life at the Phuket Aquarium by the harbour; there are tropical fish and even electric eels that give off 600 volts (don’t touch!). Enjoy the beauty of a reef shark and tiger-striped catfish, and learn more about the creatures of the sea by reading the displays. (We won't make you practise your Thai on holiday—the signs are in English!)
Some hotels in Panwa Beach come with dining and entertainment where you can enjoy live music and international or traditional Thai cuisine. To dress up for the occasion, visit a tailor in Panwa Bay Village—or go to dinner in your sandals, since it's your holiday (we don't mind).
Getting to & Around Panwa Beach
Navigating Panwa is as easy as grabbing a taxi, which should charge a set rate depending on where you want to go.
