There are several districts on the island: Phuket city – an administrative center of the province; Chalong Bay – the main berth for yachts in Phuket. All the yachts going to the remote islands depart from this place; Patong – the main center of entertainments and club life; Kamala – a calmer beach to the south of Patong; Karon – the second most popular beach after Patong; Kata – a crowded beach with good serfing; Nai Yang and Nai Thon are two calm beaches in the Sirinat National Park; Rawai – a departing point for many trips to the neighbor islands; Surin – a quickly developing district with lodging of higher level. Phuket is great for diving due to its location. World famous dive sites of Similan Archipelago islands and also a lot of interesting home reefs are situated nearby. One of the most beautiful places in the world are Phi Phi islands that offer a variety of amazing dive-sites concentrated in a small distance from each other.
