Chalong Bay, Phuket

Phuket’s principal baot anchorage and the islands lareast bay, is 11 kilometres south of the town. It is very picturesque but not suitable for swimming. Boats can be chartered to go to some small island south of Phuket. A number of restaurants are on the road leading to the bay. A few kilometers from the bay is Chalong Temple where statues of Luang Po Chaem and Luang Po Chuang, Phuket’s most revered monks, are enshrined.
