Everybody wants to immerse themselves in all the wonders that Phuket has to offer. From its world-class beaches to great local delicacies, to its vibrant cultures, Phuket is regarded by most as one of the best places to visit. Unfortunately, everyone thinks that way, flooding Phuket with visitors every year.

How about those who want to enjoy a peaceful time in Phuket? What can they do to escape the crowd and find a secluded place where they can still enjoy the wonders of Phuket?

Here are three things you can do to avoid the crowds in Phuket while still enjoying all that it has to offer:

1. Wake Up Early

One of the best ways you can enjoy famous locations without the hassle of the crowd is to wake up super early. Whether you want to visit the famous Big Buddha or enjoy a beach in its peaceful state, waking up early is the way to do it. At the same time, the weather early in the morning is quite cool, so you get to enjoy your surroundings without having to break a sweat.

If you need to charter a boat to another island, doing so early in the morning also allows you to enjoy a quick ride to your location. When the crowds start showing up, then you can take your leave.

2. Enter the New World

Phuket is dotted with dive shops, offering excellent diving training and activities. Diving is the ultimate way to get away from the crowd and enter a place of peace and solitude. Marvel at the beautiful coral reefs and the vibrant sea creatures that inhabit the sea, and think to yourself how all this beauty is hidden away by a few meters of water.

3. Avoid Famous Beaches

More often than not, the most popular Phuket beaches are only famous because they’re convenient. You would think that their beauty or cleanliness is what made them well-known, but this isn’t the case. Fortunately, there are actual beaches in the area that not only are truly stunning but also relatively untouched.

One of the best examples of this is Freedom Beach, which isn’t too far from the famous Patong Beach. Freedom Beach is truly a stunning place. In fact, we dare say that it is the most peaceful beach of them all! Why? Frankly, getting there takes a little more effort than what most people are willing to give.

Besides having to reach the place on foot, you’ll also have to pay a pricey fee for a ten-minute long-tail boat ride. Trust us, though, when we say that it is worth every baht and sweat. If you don’t have room in your itinerary to explore Freedom Beach, don’t worry—there are other peaceful beaches that are more accessible such as Banana Beach and Surin Beach.

Regardless of the beach you choose to visit, you can still have an incredible time in Phuket. All you need to do is to follow our tips and visit the right places at the right time. Sure, it will take more time and energy to plan around the big tourist traps everyone else is headed to, but your efforts will surely be rewarded!
