I'm so very torn as to where to have our honeymoon in Phuket as it's the rainy season. I know there will be sporadic showers and nice days, but we're looking for calm, clear swimming waters..but i heard most of the west beaches have big waves/undercurrents. Any suggestions? How about phiphi island or krabi? Are the beaches there calmer/clearer for swimming/snorkeling?
Thanks!!! any help would be appreciated!!

Yep, Samui area islands are usually the better bet.
Krabi and Phi Phi are in the same weather zone as Phuket - BUT - the laid back east coast is on the sheltered side of the island from the prevailing winds so conditions here in wet season are usually quite nice in the frequent sunny spells. Got some pix from a previous August there on 2 pages in the link below. This coast has good snorkelling off the beach too, but is pretty isolated from town if you want to shop or party.
Both Laem Tong and Loh Bakeo there have some very nice midrange and upmarket accomm. Check TRAVELFISH
