Rawai Beach lies at the southernmost tip of Phuket. This west-facing beach is very pleasant, with plenty of trees providing shade. Just west of Rawai is Promthep Cape (Laem Promthep) a small peninsula that provides an excellent viewpoint over the Andaman Sea.
As Rawai is rather close to Phuket Town, it's often the beach of choice for family outings. You'll see many locals enjoying picnics, usually on Sundays.
It's not a good idea to swim at Rawai because of the many boats moored there. The sea is quite shallow and when the tide goes out at Rawai Beach, mudflats and rocks are exposed.
