12 miles from ao Chalong
This marina, which has all-tide access, has approximately 200 berths inside a rock breakwater. There are deep water berths for up to 25 superyachts.
The approach is best from the south or east to avoid Hin Klang, the acre of rock awash, which is not marked on the northerly approach. The marina entrance is behind a rock breakwater on the southeast side. Approaching the entrance from the east, stay on 260° (and depart on 80°) to avoid the nasty isolated coral head ‘bombies’ off Naka Yai’s north fringing reef.
Some of Phuket’s yachting businesses make this marina their main base of operations due to the proximity of the cruising grounds of Phang Nga Bay. Onshore are a restaurant, a bar, a slipway and hardstand.
