The rainforest-covered mountain-island of Thailand has a wealth of beaches to offer, yet one of its most breathtakingly beautiful attractions is the boat lagoon.
What is it?
Categorising this place might be a little tricky, but it was initially established as a service and refurbishment centre for yachts in 1995. Presently there’s a whole lot more to it.
The Evolution of a Marina
The current boat lagoon is a bee-hive of activity, and a primary resort complex in Phuket. Luxury Villas in Thailand can be found bountifully all around the lagoon, with examples such as Kata Rocks. There’s a range of shops situated around the marina, as well as a multitude of restaurants.
The Phuket Boat Lagoon is situated quite centrally, with a distance of just twenty kilometres from the airport, and a mere eight kilometres from Phuket town. This makes the lagoon an ideal opportunity all year around for yachting adventures.
There’s almost always something happening at the marina, ranging from yoga and exercise classes, to special restaurant functions and various markets. As you can expect, there are plenty of yachting and boating related events that occur regularly, from races to all kinds of conventions. If you’re in the area, be sure to check this place out.
