Located on Phuket’s east side below the Phuket Zoo, Chalong Bay is best known as a spot for sailors to anchor a boat in the protected zone around the Chalong Pier. Chalong Bay Beach is more a collection of beaches along the Chalong Bay sub district of Phuket. Along the bay there are spots with sand that form beaches, but there isn’t any one place that is called Chalong Bay Beach, so take your pick.
The beach at the south end of the Chalong Bay is around 260 meters (284 yd.) long and has a House Rentals Phuket office and Chalong Villa Resort & Spa if you’d like to stay on this beach. The beach on the north end has Chalong Boatyard, Coconuts Boatyard, and other boat storage facilities for longtail and other types of boats.
As said above, Chalong Beach is used as a take-off point for speedboats and longtail boats taking tourists to the other islands off Phuket’s east coast. The Chalong beach itself consists of sand and dirt, and at low tide, the muddy sand stretches for about 100 meters (109 yd.).
Chalong Beach isn’t going to be your first choice for a scenic beach in Phuket, unless you just don’t have the time to find something nicer. There is no swimming or snorkeling here, and the area doesn’t cater to tourists – as there is nothing here to do really except catch a boat to somewhere else or rent a place to stay.
There is no Beach club in Chalong Bay
Fatty’s Restaurant has now been located in Chalong, Phuket for more than 10 years, and was, prior to the tsunami, located for 10 years on Phi Phi island.
Please note that Fatty’s Restaurant is usually packed between 6pm and 8pm. Therefore either make a table reservation (Mobile Phone JP: +66 81 894 1804) prior to arrival, if not you may risk to wait until a table will be available.
