I went to Phuket in a monsoon season. Surprisingly wave condition Nai Yang beach is relatively mild, compared to nearby Mai Khao beach where my hotel locates. I went to the beach to do some surfing practice. I asked a kite school near the beach for surf board rental, local Thais inside offered for THB 300 per hour. I know... More

We visited on a stormy day and it was still stunning, the water is a beautiful colour and the sand is pristine white. There are areas to picnic under the shade of trees, with food purchased from the local stalls on the road just off the beach but the day we visited it was too windy.

Amazing to find such a lovely beach so close to the airport and you don't even notice or hear the planes going over.

Lovely beach with no high rise buildings, part of the beach is national park with huge Casuarina trees. A nice alternative to the pressure of Patong, also conveniently close to the airport. Dining choices are really good, and a beautiful sunset on the beach with a nice cocktail is a great way to end the day. I'll be staying there... More

Other travelers suggest Nai Yang beach so we'd thought we'd give it a try. The beach itself was beautiful and sparsely populated. Beach chairs were only 50BHT and service from the chair attendant was very good. The waters were clear and warm. A truly relaxing place with minimal crowds and very few people trying to sell you something. The food... More

I’ll probably compare this beach to Pagudpud back home. It’s just a few walks away from our resort bearing the same name and close to the airport. Lots of restaurants, bars and spas in and around Nai Yang; also travel agencies offering tour packages, money changers, convenience stores, souvenir shops. Find your best couch at sunset amidst glowing candlelights, too.... More

We walked to this beach every day and got some beach loungers for very cheap. Lots of great restaurants right on the beach with great food. Cheap massages available on the beach but you can get far better ones for less money.

Patong has gotten SO BIG and crazy that we have written it off. We had an early flight and stayed at the Phuket Airport Hotel (see our review - it was great) and had time to kill. The manager drove us down to the beach and it was quaint & beautiful, the beach was full of kite boarders and it... More

We have been going to Thailand for a number of years, and always stay at Indigo Pearl @ Nai Yang Beach. Nai Yang is a lovely quiet beach, very close to the airport(about 5minute taxi ride) with lots of family owned Bars & Restaurants. The beach itself is reasonably tidy with just the odd bit of rubbish. All the local... More
