The waters around Phuket are brimming with life from coral to colourful fishes and the best way to explore this marine environment is by snorkelling. There are multiple excellent sites around the island where the sea is shallow and calm, making snorkelling a popular attraction in Phuket. If you stay at Club Med Phuket, we can even arrange a snorkelling trip for you.
If you want to go to deeper depths and explore more of the Andaman Sea, then a Phuket scuba diving tour is your answer. There are dozens of dive sites around the island with impressive biodiversity. Additionally, the waters here are clear and generally calm. If you're a beginner, you can even take a scuba diving course and be PADI certified in Phuket.
Besides water activities, Phuket has an impressive bungee jumping location in the jungle. If you're an adrenaline junkie or have always wanted to cross bungee jumping off your bucket list, then Phuket is a great place to do it. Jumping from 10 stories high with water and the green canopy spread out below you is an experience not to be missed. If you want, you can even opt to be dunked in the water.
Ziplining is a famous attraction in Phuket as it's unique, exciting, and suitable for the whole family. There are a number of jungle zipline providers on the island including Flying Hanuman, Jungle Xtreme, and European Standards Zipline Park. You can zipline from up to 40 metres high on a zipline as long as 400 metres long at Flying Hanuman, while at European Standards, you can ride on the roller coaster zipline in Phuket.
Besides snorkelling and diving in Phuket, surfing is another big activity you can enjoy here.
