What makes Phuket’s beaches so unique? In truth, it isn’t the beach itself, but its surroundings that make it a paradise. The sea around Phuket’s beaches is excellent for swimming.

Phang Nga Bay, a neighbor to Phuket, offers a stunning view into an other-dimensional world of vertical limestone formations. Phuket, along with many of its neighboring islands, all boast granite boulders standing tall in the ocean, different from those Phang Nga has to offer. Phuket’s location within the Andaman region is one of the most significant factors in turning Phuket from a no-name place to world fame.

As tourism grows, the island paradise is becoming filled with concrete structures with patches of nature here fringing the island. If what once made Phuket so famous is destroyed, what reason would visitors have to come to this once-paradise island? However, all is not lost, as the geography might be what saves the island’s fame.
