Kayaking and Canoeing in Phuket – Taking to the Waves on an Adventure

Looking for a fun way to go exploring in Phuket while also getting in a great cardio workout? Kayaking and canoeing is the answer with lots of adventures for you to enjoy!

The wonders of nature

Phang Nga Bay is one of the most popular Phuket attractions that can be enjoyed while kayaking or canoeing. Home to imposing limestone cliffs, secluded islands and vibrant coral reefs, it is little wonder that this area rich in biodiversity has also been named as the Ao Phang Nga National Park.

In search of a “hong”

One of the best experiences when kayaking, especially in Phang Nga Bay is the chance to explore “hongs”. These are somewhat like collapsed cave systems that can be accessed at low tide and are home to their own distinctive ecosystem.

Seaside fun

Kayaking doesn’t always have to be about serious exploration. If you are staying at a beachside resort such as Anantara Layan Phuket Resort you can always look to just hire a kayak and take to the sea, by yourself or with a loved one; it’s the perfect way to enjoy the laid-back beach vibes, tropical sunshine and a whole new perspective of the island.

Best time for canoeing and kayaking

These activities can be enjoyed pretty much all year round in Phuket and it should be noted, rainy weather even adds a whole new allure to such adventures. That being said, December to March offers plenty of sunshine for an unforgettable excursion out at sea.
