The sailing cruises are a great way to explore the outdoors. When you go out sailing in Phuket you can snorkel and dive around the waters of the islands. If you are in Phuket for a short stay then sailing will be a good option for you. Most of the sailing cruises take you to the nearby islands where you can relax, sun bathe or even have a private picnic. Phang Nga Bay, Phi Phi, Raya and Similan islands are great for a beach getaway. If you are sailing with a group of people or even if you are sailing alone you should take the opportunity to explore the islands. There are some interesting species that dwell in the coral reefs nearby and you can spot a large number of clown fish in the water. Also the palm trees on the islands will help you cool off in the hot temperature.
There are different types of cruises that are available in Phuket. There are luxury yachts, catamarans, cabin cruises and monohulls. If you are not too familiar with Phuket then it is better to go for a guided cruise. Sailing in the area is a special activity because the waters that surround the island belong to the Andaman Sea. This means that the weather conditions for this activity are near perfect. The sunny weather and the moderate winds create the atmosphere for a great experience. Relaxing on beautiful beaches and island hopping are the highlights of such an outdoor adventure.
Another great experience is the food that will be served on board. Somehow a meal served out in the open sea tastes more delicious than when you are dining in a restaurant. It’s probably because the diving and snorkelling helps you to work up an appetite. Visitors who are planning to stay in the area could stay at a Phuket resort during their vacation. A Phuket beach resort is by far the best option because they have the best rooms with a spectacular view of the Thai ocean. Check out Anantara Phuket Resort Thailand, they will pamper you and make your stay in Thailand a memorable one.
