Phuket is a paradise of limitless thrills. You won’t run out of fine white sand to lay down or rock formations to scale. Be one with the sea by riding the waves or diving to witness the lush marine life. You can also explore more of the island by renting a motorcycle and seeing its captivating beauty at its many public viewpoints. When the sun goes down, the party starts in any of the surrounding pubs. Yet, while all those endeavors offer excitement, there are other outdoor activities that will make your stay worthwhile.

1. Bungee jumping

Head to Kathu and experience a bungee jump that cuts through a beautiful view of a captivating lagoon surrounded by lush rainforest. Tandem bungee jumps are available for those who want to join the thrill while the catapult version ushers in a dose of adrenaline through your body.

2. Ziplining

Speaking of an adrenaline rush, drift through the rainforest via the Flying Hanuman zipline while marveling at the spectacular views that unfurl through the Andaman Sea. You can choose to conquer the zipline while sitting down or by imitating Superman’s flying position. Be sure that you catch the wonders around you while screaming at the top of your lungs.

3. Water adventures

Aside from surfing, you can also explore Phuket’s waves via waterskiing. You will feel like a racer once you bounce off the sea and make turns while speeding through another direction. Keep your adventurous spirit alive by visiting operators that rent out jet skis and related equipment. You can also get a crash course on beginner and intermediate maneuvers to level up the fun.

4. Whitewater rafting

Head to Phang Nga province and enjoy whitewater rafting at Ton Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary. Streaming through Khlong Song Phraek is quite the challenge thanks to the Class 2 and 3 rapids awaiting through the course. This narrow stream with scattered boulders is open throughout the year. However, the rainy season from May to October gives you the best quality of rapids.

5. ATV riding

Talk about combining an ATV ride and an exciting safari. Cruise through the area on a four-wheeler All-Terrain Vehicle to witness breathtaking landscapes at Chalong Bay, Rawai Beach, and the Andaman archipelago. Stop by the thrilling safari at Nakkerd Hill before traversing through the jungle en route to the Big Buddha.

6. Canoeing

Phang Nga Bay houses numerous caves hidden within the limestone karsts. Paddle through the emerald green water to witness spectacular sights of Phuket’s east coast. The absence of light inside the caves means that you must complete this activity before sunset.

7. Paragliding

The wind currents in southern Phuket are perfect for paragliding with an instructor. Rise above the Andaman Sea to gaze at the Yanui and Nai Harn beaches from the top. This exhilarating outdoor activity is perfect if you are not afraid of heights. You will also get a bird’s eye view of Phuket’s majestic landscapes.

Your home in Phuket

After doing these activities, it’s best to unwind at the Outrigger Surin Beach Resort, which offers Deluxe Rooms and Duplex Suites to accommodate groups. This tropical haven at the edge of Surin Beach features aromatic lotus ponds that helps you destress after a long day. Find comfort from the dishes at their restaurant or get some cocktails at their pool bar.
