The best restaurants in Chalong are mostly on the budget-friendly end of the price spectrum but, much like the rest of the island, cover a broad range of cuisines. Chalong is a favourite destination for yachtsmen to drop their anchors. Within immediate walking distance of the pier, newcomers will see various types of eating venues, big and small, old and new.

    As the area is one of the most popular places for Phuket's expatriate community to call home, you'll have no difficulty finding great international restaurants. Even so, if you're particularly looking for Thai food, you'll find some of the best and most unique eateries on the island around Chalong.
