7 miles from Patong Bay
Anchor in front of the famous resort, outside the fringing reef in 15 metres on a sandy bottom. There’s an excellent sandy beach, and good snorkelling on both points.
This anchorage is uncomfortable when the northwest swell is running in February or March, but is secluded, is one of the nicer bays on the west coast, and is home to The Surin and Amanpuri exclusive resorts. Yacht crews may use the hotel restaurants for that special occasion, but it’s wise to make a reservation.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only. They should not be used for navigation. Please refer to Official Hydrographic Charts of the respective countries.
