When the chance came up to write a guest post for Rika, I wanted to write about something that follows on from her current theme of islands, beaches, and diving. I had recently put up a post on my own blog about my favourite beaches on the west coast of Phuket, Thailand, and I was really surprised at how many people mentioned that they had overlooked this little island in the Andaman Sea.
Now, with these suggestions in mind, I have to specify that most of these beaches are within driving distance of each other. Why not rent a motorbike and drive along the coast until you find the place that suits you. Taxis in Phuket are expensive, but there is also a bus that will take you between Kata and Patong, as well as to Phuket Town.
