The jewel in the Andaman crown, Phuket is unrivalled as a cruising destination. Sailing around this island paradise allows you to experience the best of everything the area has to offer. You can quickly go from dancing on the sand with thousands at a beach party, to dropping anchor at an uninhabited island where you share a bay with only the wildlife. Marine national parks abound and, as a result, diving in the area is world class. As a long established elite holiday destination, there is also a huge choice of excellent restaurants and exclusive shopping boutiques. Made famous by films such as ‘The Beach’ and ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’, it is easy to see why the sheer limestone cliffs, white sands and pristine water of the islands off Phuket have come to represent paradise.
