Taxi fare from Cape Panwa to other beaches


I am heading to Cape Panwa in a few days. Would be great if anyone can give me some ballpark number on taxi rates to the other popular beaches:

1.)CP to Patong

2.)CP to Kata

3.)CP to Phuket Town

Thanks very much in advance.

I have booked the Radisson's Blu Resort for my 5 day stay in CP. If anyone can give me their comment and advise and the resort and the area around, that will be fantastic!

Thanks a lot peeps

Last August I paid 700 baht for a local taxi to take me to Phuket weekend markets and wait for 3 hours. If you book a tour with them they said they would charge me less :)

The airport to Cape Panwa Hotel was 550 baht using the airport taxis.

Sorry I have only gone to Patong via CP Hotels shuttle ...think that was 300 baht return for 3 hours but I would imagine the Radisson was similar. And I have never been to Kata except as part of a day long trip around Phuket with a driver/taxi.

Hope this helps, if you go back in the Cape Panwa forums you will find lots of advise about where to eat etc...its a lovely peaceful quiet area.

It's gonna be expensive. Upwards of 500 baht each journey. May be a thousand baht to Patong. Cape Panwa is a long way from most places. Probably cheaper to hire a car or a car and driver for the day and do private tours. You could hire a private minivan with driver/guide for 500 baht per hour if taking it for a day.

It'll also be time consuming getting around, Phuket traffic is busy these days.

Luckily Ao Yon and Ao Makam just around from Cape Panwa have beautiful beaches so no need to go far :)
