    Welcome to Travelfish and apologies to your girlfriend! All the main beaches will have straightforward transport to get to the pier -- sometimes a transfer is built into the ticket price, so no need to lose sleep over that.

    For a particular recommendation, I'd say Kata Beach may be what you're looking for. There's stacks of places to stay, eat and drink, and two fine beaches within walking distance. If that's too busy, then Kamala would be my second suggestion.

    we will be travelling mid march. should we book a place to stay in before we go or chance it when we arrive. we are looking for a beach hut between 1000-2000 per night. is there many or is it all hotels?
    thanks for all your help

    Mid march, booking not essential.

    Accommodation on Kata/Karon/Patong is mostly hotels -- with cheaper accommodation in guesthouses back off the beach. For old style beach bungalow, you could try Kamala or in particular Ya Nui Beach in the south.

    I want to get from Phuket pier to Kata beach, what is the best way to do this? I'd prefer to take a taxi, but worried that may cost 400 - 500 baht.
