Phuket is recognized as the yacht cruising center of Asia. This green season is when most beaches in Phuket have high waves and strong winds. On the east coast, where the Cape Panwa hotel is located and where Phuket Raceweek takes place, however, steady winds and waves make for satisfying swimming and sailing.
