Phuket Sunrise Photos
Phuket Sunrise on Chalong Bay
[right and above]: Chalong Sunrise
The east side of Phuket is not as well known for its beaches, but if you enjoy a sunrise stroll it is the place to be. The photo to the right is just off of Fisherman’s Way about one kilometer south of the Chalong circle.
You can also get there by turning towards the Chalong Pier (east) at the Chalong circle. Keep an eye out for the Brahminy Kites (see the bird watching page) that cruise the coastline there and many of the coastal areas in the area.
From the most southern tip of the island all the way up to the bridges to the mainland – there are a variety of beaches and seaside areas – that are home to magnificent sunrises. Phuket will reward you for getting up early and checking out the sights!
Chalong is a good place to start as, if you head south, you’ll get to walk by some very nice houses that sit right on the beach with views of the bay islands. Further north on the island are even better views of other bay islands. It is fantastic to watch the sun come up over them.
The eastside of the island, particularly up on the northeast, is beginning to develop and as it does so you will have many new choices for breakfast or a rest after your sunrise beach walk.
Go, enjoy – and don’t forget to take your camera!
Just south of the Chalong Pier you can find Fisherman Way, a beautiful residential area that also has short-term rentals. A GREAT way to spoil yourself.
