“A beach more for the locals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

I went by this beach on public transpo from Phuket Town to Naithan Beach and its obviously more for the locals. I did not stop to walk around but it looked like there was plenty of places to eat that are probably much cheaper with better food than the tourist traps on the other touristy beaches where all the western tourists go...

“Sea Gypsy Village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Sea Gypsy Village is located just near Rawaii Pier. It is a lot of small shops with pearls and souvenirs, but real fun starts just after that. It is a small market with fresh fish, crabs and lobsters. After long bargaining you can bring your fish to one of many restaurants across the street. they are providing services of cooking and preparing seafood for very attractive prices ( around 200 Bhats / kg).

“Enjoy Fresh Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

We recently stayed at Phuket hired a scooter to get around each day. We found ourselves at Rawai beach and discovered the local fresh food markets. On the beach side are the markets where you can choose fresh seafood and on the left hand side are restaurants that will cook it for you.

We choose pink snapper and calamari and had it cooked for about $15. A great atmosphere and so yummy and fresh.

Highly recommend you can't go wrong.
