Where to live in Phuket and Transport around the island

Hi. My partner and I are thinking of relocating to Phuket in the next few years. He has spent a lot of time there in the past. We came to visit the first half of January this year and looked at property in Kamala. We are now thinking that Nai Harn may be a better area for us as we are looking to be somewhere with a local vibe but where there are other expats and where we can get a decent property. Does anyone have any advice? Also do you know if its easy to join clubs and meet people in Nai Harn?

Also I don't drive! Is this going to be a problem in Phuket? I know most areas have local amenities within walking distance but if I had to travel a little further would I need to be able to drive? Any advice would be much appreciated!
