Beautiful Naiharn Beach and Surrounding Nationalpark in Phuket, Thailand
...a quiet little spot at the southern end of Phuket. Nai Harn beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket with its excellent water quality. This quiet and tranquil place is a favorite anchorage for many boats during the high season
Nai HarnBeach has been voted the Number One Best Beach in Phuket by Trip Advisor.
The beach is encompassed on both sides by rich jungle-covered mountains and a large Freshwater Lagoon. Never overloaded, even in high season, Nai Harn is usually busier at weekends as it is popular with both Thais and expats.
At the southern end of the beach a freshwater lagoon flows into the sea, creating a stream that children love to play in . All year round the water is a comfortable 29°C. Flat lake-like crystal-clear water invites you for a dip November to May. From June to October on occasion there can be days where larger waves attract surfers and prevent swimming - however these days aren't very common. Sunbed vendors rent a set of two mats and an umbrella for 250 baht per day. There are public toilets at the north end by the shops and the centrally located beach restaurants will usually allow you to use theirs for a small charge. Many tourists who come to Phuket never make it to this wonderful stretch of sand.
Beach Restaurants In many ways you're spoilt for choice when it comes to food at Nai Harn. There's a wealth of choices at restaurants that line the top of the beach. Most are very reasonably priced and have menus that seem to go on forever. Pretty much any Thai dish you could want will be available in addition to many international favorites.
AO Sane Beach
Another out-of-the way spot nearby - just North of Nai Harn, along the coast is the tiny beach of Ao Sane, a great spot for snorkeling, reached by taking the dirt road that starts at The Royal Meridien car park. Further South is Ya Nui Beach, small, secluded and easy to access.
Ya Nui Beach
Further to the South in walking distance lies the famous Laem Phrom Thep Cape - not to be missed ! A promontory stretching into the sea and shaping the farthest south end of Phuket. Cape Phrom Thep is famous as a place to enjoy spectacular sunsets. The cape has tall cliffs from which one can see the fascinating coastline of Nai Harn Beach. One can walk out to where the breakers crash against the rocks below.
Rawai Beach from Birdsview
Phuket's "Locals" beach - Rawai Beach. To Rawai one does not come for swimming, as the beach is not particularly suited for swimming. But exploring it while watt walking at low tide is another experience. You come to Rawai in the first place to eat - whether Thai or tourist!
Rawai Beach and its Longtail Boats
Here you'll find speed boats and the long-tail boats, with which one can make a trip to other beaches and neighboring islands such as Coral Island, Racha Island, or Koh Bon Island. Many fishermen and charter boats have their starting point for day trips right here. Along the road one grill station is next to the other. Rawai beach is famous for its fantastic seafood dishes.
Business is always here, because the food is delicious. You eat on the beach. There are tables and chairs, too, but one should try "Thai Style" once: You sit on mats. In the middle is a low table on which food is served.
Once at Rawai Beach, ask for 'Koh Bon' - a secretly hidden Beach nearby and worth to visit by boat
