Catagorize: Beaches & Bay
Contact: Tambon Chalong, Amphoe Mueang, Phuket Tel. -
A lot of tourists in Phuket and its surrounding islands might have a chance to visit Ao Chalong in Mueang District. The pier at this bay offers boats for tourists and passengers who want to visit the neighboring island. There is a long wooden bridge protruded into the sea at Ao Chalong. The tourists can see ranges of coconut trees bent from the sea along the extended curved beach. Although the mud make this beach improper for the tourists to swim, Ao Chalong is one of the naturally beautiful places that provide rented boats for tourists to go fishing and go to other islands such as Koh Hae and Koh Racha Yai. As a result, this place is crowded with tourists arriving and departing the bay all the time. Besides, Ao Chalong offers full facilities for tourists, including accommodations, restaurants, convenient stores, passenger buses, and various types of car coming in and going out the bay very frequently. This makes one person’s visit worth for ten people. Apart from visiting Ao Chalong and other nearby islands, there is also Wat Chalong, situated not far from the bay. It is a peaceful place and spiritual sanctuary for Phuket people. It is very hot at Ao Chalong due to strong sunlight; therefore, it is better for the tourists to bring sunscreen with them.
