A vacation in Phuket is often filled with fun and lots of exciting activities whether you are by yourself, with your loved one, family or friends. This island has the perfect combination of sandy beaches, warm sparkling waters, exciting nightlife and interesting culture that will leave you wanting more.

One of the top things to do when in Phuket is to sample some of their watersports activities, and here is a list of the best 6 watersports to try:

1. Diving

Fret not if you don’t already have a diving license, as there are numerous diving centers in Phuket that offer one. This is a must do in Phuket because it is the top 10 best diving spot in the world for a reason. The thriving marine life here will wow you with its beautiful corals and vibrant fishes, and you will walk away with new perspectives in life.

Reserve a day just for diving if you can, and there are various diving trips you can partake in depending on your skill and interest level. Here at Club Med Phuket, we offer several excursions for beginner or advanced divers that will include lessons, guides, equipment and dive trips. Make your trip in Phuket memorable with this unforgettable experience underwater!

2. Snorkelling

If scuba diving is not for you, why not try snorkelling which is lower in commitment and time. This is a great way to still enjoy the beautiful marine life but is much easier and more convenient. All you need is a pair of fins and a snorkelling mask, and you can be swimming among the fishes and corals. What’s more, there are so many suitable snorkelling spots here that make this activity a must do for all visitors to Phuket.

Guests at Club Med Phuket can enjoy free access to snorkelling trips at three different spots which are about 30-min boat rides away from the resort. This activity is available to anyone starting from age 8 and includes equipment for loan as well. Grab this opportunity to swim with fishes and sea turtles when you are here!

3. Kayaking

Another beginner-friendly watersports activity is kayaking, which is not only a great way to explore the shore of Phuket but is also a fun exercise! Hop on a kayak by yourself or with a partner, and explore the shore, islands, limestone caves with magnificent views of the stalactites, and karst outcrops.

For something that requires little to no experience, kayaking is a great way to enjoy the sea life and you might be able to score some amazing photographs too!

4. Surfing

The waves at Phuket are perfect for surfing especially from April to October as the sea is not too rough and waves are just the right sizes. While it is harder to master than the other watersports, many surfing enthusiasts swear by the adrenaline-pumping moments when you are riding the top of the oncoming wave. Rent a short or long board and experience this for yourself! Head to Kata Beach for some lessons or Karon and Kamala if you are already an experienced surfer.

5. Jet Skiing

Another adrenaline-pumping watersport activity is jet skiing which allows you to surf the waves in a jetski and experience the warm wind and sea breeze as fast or as slow as you want. You can rent a jetski at Patong Beach or any other beach in Phuket but make sure you do so only with reputable licensed operators!

6. Parasailing

It is surprising how much watersports you can do in Phuket, and another top one is parasailing. Strapped on a lifejacket and parachute, you will be hoisted up in the air by a speedboat and can experience the sea from above. Enjoy the magnificent view of the sea, beach and island from above in this once-in-a-lifetime experience and this is definitely a top thing to do in Phuket!
