Phuket is filled with many natural wonders that are ready to excite anyone willing to pay a visit to this majestic island. While it is famous for the stunning beaches it has to offer, there’s a whole other myriad of activities to be enjoyed here, ensuring that everyone’s schedule is filled with exciting activities to occupy their time.

That said, if you want to explore more of this fantastic island, here are four activities you can do to make the most out of it:

1. Go on a biking adventure
Do you want to stay away from the waters and instead explore what the island itself has to offer? Then you can go on an exploration adventure on two wheels. No, we aren’t telling you to rent a motorbike, but rather a bicycle!

There are many places you can bike to in Phuket, but perhaps the most popular amongst the cyclists is Little Long Island, also known as Koh Yao Noi. Here, you’ll encounter one of the most beautiful and relaxing areas in Phuket, dotted with locals going about their daily activities like rice farming and fishing.

2. Earn a kitesurfing badge
If you want to challenge yourself in Phuket, then consider taking up kitesurfing! If you have never heard of this activity before, imagine being pulled across the waters of Phuket by a kite. You’ll experience a rush that you’ve never felt before, and it’ll be one that will make you want to come back for more.

Before you start on this activity, though, you’ll need to undergo some training first. You can head for Kite School Phuket to find instructors who will bring you around to learn this exciting activity. Do note that this is a physically demanding activity, so it is recommended only ones that are generally fit to participate.

3. Ride on the waves
Although this activity is not such a popular sport early on, surfing has grown in popularity in Phuket over the years. If you’re looking for the biggest waves or the most beautiful tubes, you may not find it in Phuket. Nevertheless, if you’re a beginner and want to learn how to enjoy this fantastic activity, then it is the perfect place to be.

There are plenty of beaches here that offer surf training, including all the necessary equipment you’ll need to learn. Once you’re up and running and want to challenge yourself, there are still beaches here that offer much bigger waves that you can practice your new-found hobby.

4. Explore the underwater world
If riding the waves and exploring the surface isn’t what you will enjoy, then maybe the underwater world offers you the excitement you’ve been looking for!

Fortunately for you, Phuket is ranked among the world’s best destinations to go diving in, so know that you’ll be in for a real treat. Even if you’re a beginner, you’ll still get to enjoy the wonders of the underwater world.

Visit the Phi Phi islands and swim around the King Cruiser wreck that is home to vibrant anemones and stunning sea creatures, or head to Shark Point and look at the leopard sharks that roam the seafloor. There are just so many places in Phuket you can go diving in, and they all are well worth the visit.
