The Pearl of the Andaman

With its gently curving coastline, craggy limestone islands, colourful marine parks and untouched sandy coves, it won’t take you long to see why Phuket is known as the Pearl of the Andaman. 

Set sail for the tropical bliss of the Andaman Sea, where you'll find more than 130 islands to explore. Wind your way through mysterious, emerald waters, drop anchor off deserted beaches and moor in completely untouched and undeveloped fishing villages still steeped in ancient cultures.

For world-class diving and snorkelling excellent sport fishing and unspoilt beaches, head for the western shore of Phuket. For Hollywood-style beauty and incredible nightlife, cruise to the world-famous Phi Phi islands. Here you’ll see sheer, craggy cliffs rising dramatically from the sea and miles of sultry jungle ready to be explored. The sheltered cliffs protect the staggering beauty of Maya Bay, the location for the film ‘The Beach’, while nearby Ko Lanta hides isolated villages and some of the best cuisine in Southeast Asia. A Phuket sailing holiday will introduce you to a world of exotic beauty and idyllic islands.
