At sea, on land, or even above it, Phuket's remarkable range of sports, tours, diversions and adventures guarantee a fun-packed holiday for all.

In the water or out, the Andaman Sea and Phangnga Bay offer
an unrivalled selection of watersports, including deep-sea fishing that would give Hemingway a thrill, and snorkelling and Scuba diving that would take Cousteau's breath away. There is also sea-canoeing into spectacular hollow island escarpments and enchanting yachting experiences that have not only made these waters world famous, but also helped make Phuket one of Asia's premier yachting destinations, with yachts from every continent represented in the bays and marinas of the island.

On shore, Phuket's thrills and adventures are just as numerous. Gallop gracefully across the sand on a horse from one of Phuket's several riding stables, or take a trek into the island's jungles aboard an elephant. Hike through the primordial forest of Khao Phra Tieow, or mountain bike along the winding hill roads. Play 18, 36 or 72 holes of golf at any of the four world-class golf clubs, or putt a little easier at the Mini-golf park in Kata. Take a leap of faith at the island's Bungy Jump centre or - if speed is your thing - roar around Phuket's Go-Kart track.

In fact, with so much to do on and around Phuket, booking a longer stay may be advisable - just to give yourself time to fit it all in.
