I have visited Nai Yang every year for the past 4 and have watched the slow expansion along the beach, the increase in numbers and rubbish build up. I have found it to be a Patong in miniature with good food, drinking spots and wide variety of accommodation. I just spent two days there this past week and I have... More

My friend and I arrived here without checking weather reports, so basically limited to what we can do due to the rain. The town is small and has few restaurants. Apparently the govt beach clean up has eradicated a lot of the beach restaurants, which is noticable when walking along the beach as there are a lot of derelict buildings.... More

Came here with little or no preconceived notion of what to expect. If I read this board prior to going I'd probably not have came. Needless to say it was a great trip. The beach was pretty beat up by govt. cleanup. Therefore, we took a long boat snorkeling, squid fishing and beach hopping. Had a great time, yet give... More

We popped here in August (2014) in high hopes, however it seems like a lot of the beach front restaurants etc have been knocked-down so there is just a pile rubble and a few places that survived. It seems without the beach front places, the beach is no longer being kept clean. What a shame, I hope they can rebuild... More

I stayed at Pensiri Hotel 600 baht, the night before flying out because its so close to airport you could almost walk. Tuktuk will ask for 2-300 baht but will accept 100baht. Beach is not very clean but better than patong. A mini mart, could of restaurants and massage places both legit ones and dodgy ones. Got the bus from... More

We unfortunately arrived the day the government had come to rip down all the small businesses that are on the beach. You could tell the place would have been beautiful, had there not been debris of the buildings everywhere. Apparently it is because the beach is a national park so the seafood restaurants and cool bars that were on the... More

If you are looking for a quiet place, Nai Yang Beach is the place for you. Unlike others who prefer going to Patong or Surin, and then just come to Nai Yang for a night before they fly somewhere, we decided to stay near the airport. There's a big park where you will see more locals. There were few tourists... More

A few miles south of Phuket Airport is Nai Yang Beack. The site has many small bamboo restaurants who all served Sea Food. You sit in small bamboo leaves covered cottages with table and benches. The place is visited by many locals. The beach is ok, but I have seen better beaches on Phuket. The aircraft to Phuket come very... More
