Rawai lies at the southernmost tip of Phuket, with a pleasant west-facing beach as one of its main attractions. Just west of Rawai is Promthep Cape (Laem Promthep), a small peninsula that provides an excellent viewpoint over the Andaman Sea.

    One of the closest beaches to Phuket Town, Rawai is a particularly popular spot for family outings. You'll see many locals enjoying picnics, usually on Sundays. The beach is a major point of departure for boats heading out to the surrounding islands. There are signs up along the beach road, quoting prices for longtail boats for hire.
