If you are lucky enough to be on a yacht charter in Thailand in December, then Christmas is a very special experience on Phuket, as the Thai people love to celebrate and join in the fun “Sanuk”, as for them Christmas is just another reason to celebrate!
But where to spend Christmas day on your yacht charter? Well here are 5 of our suggestions.
Nai Harn Beach
This is a fairly quiet but stunning beach found at the southern end of Phuket, it has beautiful crystal clear waters for magical swimming, and enjoys a spectacular sunset, which you can enjoy in the evening from one of the many beach restaurants serving excellent food.
Nai Thon Beach
This beach is normally deserted and very peaceful. It is a fantastic spot for swimming and snorkelling and has beautiful clear azure seas. So if you are after some peace and quiet on Christmas day during your yacht charter in Thailand, this is a superb spot!
If however you want to spend Christmas day in the thick of the action and surrounded by other people celebrating, then Surin Beach is the place to go. It is a small but beautiful beach situated on the west coast of Phuket. It is a great beach for children too when the tide is out as you can walk a long way out through shallow waters. However, this is a busy spot with popular restaurants, so not for you if you are after peace and tranquility!
Nai Yan Beach
If you are looking to experience a genuine Thai experience on Christmas Day away from the throng of tourists, then this beach is for you – not far from the airport, it is a popular spot for the locals and you can dine really well in true Thai style.
Of course if you want to celebrate Christmas night with some excellent nightlife then Patong beach is the place to go. It’s a very attractive beach, and very popular, but a great choice if fun and sun is what you are after! This place really comes alive at night time with plenty of entertainment of all varieties for everyone to enjoy.
