The month of August closed with good weather, despite some rain sea was flat and no wind. There were two or three very hot days at the ed of last week because of the haze from Sumatra. Then a mild wind on Saturday and a night rain on Sunday cleared the air

Wind picked up since yesterday so wave out in open sea can big between one and two meters. While on sheltered side of the islands can stay in flat water and enjoy the warm sea
Don't forget that sea water temperature in Phuket is always between 27 and 30 Celsius, very nice to swim and dive there.
|Relax and enjoy holidays|
