I can't say enough of how beautiful this beach was. Super relaxing and the kind of place you picture yourself when you think of the "perfect beach vacation". Can't wait to one day be back!

Lovely clean beach and water. I was pleasantly surprised to find the beach sand free of rubbish. Another good point is that there aren't too many peddlers selling tourist stuff, so you are able to relax without people bothering you. Would definitely go back again!

What a lovely part of Phuket, we drove through on the way south and ended up stopping a while on the way back. Some really nice places and next time I will consider staying there on my next visit to Phuket.

Very pretty beach and not to busy we hired jet ski's which was fun and swam in the turquoise blue sea. My son did some scuba diving which was clear and lots of fish to see. Perfect

We noticed discovered a smelly canal that drains into the ocean on the far north side of the beach. Gets crowded and noisy after 12PM.
