What to Do in Rawai

Mofified on October 31, 2023

What to Do in Rawai | Rawai’s promenade is perfect for a stroll to explore the little shops and restaurants that line this picturesque beach road.

Rawai boasts spectacular beauty, particularly at one of the island’s most famous viewpoints, Promthep Cape. This headland rises high above the sea where you’ll find an awe-inspiring vista, parts of which also act as the launch pad for many a paraglider.

Down on Nai Harn beach, boogie boarding, surfing and swimming are all popular pastimes. Please note that the beach can get very busy during the weekends with Thai and Western families spending the whole day. Nai Harn lake, just behind the beach, is popular with joggers and dog walkers alike should you fancy a bit of exercise.

To the west of Nai Harn Beach is another seashore known as Ao Sane that offers spectacular snorkelling opportunities. It can be reached by way of an underpass, which can be found at the Nai Harn hotel and leads you onto a narrow, winding road up the hill affording expansive views of the land and sea.

To the west of Nai Harn is another small beach called Ya Nui. This sheltered cove is perfect for snorkelling and taking a kayak out to the island opposite.

Rawai also boast several Muay Thai training camps should you fancy getting fit.
