Nai Yang is a nice beach in a national park area close to the airport. Great for sunsets in the winter months. The water is nice and the beaches fairly clean. You can watch planes fly in and fly out (can't see the runway though). There are some restaurants and vendors around so you really have almost everything you need... More

This beach isn't as crowded as others. We walk to the middle section to be in line with the runway as we enjoy watching the planes land and leave. The sand is soft but as you walk into the ocean the first few meters have a lot of stones until you get in further and it appears soft again. No... More

The beach was quite nice but nothing amazing. Shallow and warm water. Not many people there even though we visited in December.

The Sea Beach Restaurant & Bar is a wonderful restaurant, where the food, both Thai and European is always excellent and the staff and indeed the owners are always very friendly, efficient and helpful. The restaurant itself is situated at 74 Moo 3, Sakoo, Thalang, Phuket 83110, which is right by the large massage parlour founded by and dedicated to... More

This is a great beach for not only relaxing and enjoying both the water and the sun but you get the added advantage of the fantastic show put on by the aircraft landing into Phuket Airport.

Rating based on resorts I've visited in Thailand. Having spent a few days in Bangkok and visited Patong, the laid back non-appressive atmosphere of Nai Yang Beach was most welcome. There's a few bars, restaurants and shops along the beach and beach road itself, including places to book excursions, hire cars and get your laundry done. Their are just a... More

Again out for the day to explore pristine beaches but it looked too dirty behind the beach. Just so disappointing. The beaches south of Patong are cleaner. We had just left Mai Khao beach because it was too dirty.

Phuket maybe a Thai island but it can hardly qualify as nice due to the amount of tourists that visit it. The likes of Patong, Kata and Karon are just malls on sand. However, a short ride on a rented motorbike towards the airport takes you to Sirinat National Park on the western coast of the island which is home... More

Nai Yang Beach used to be an amazing place until the military moved and removed the restaurants and stall from the beach. This was due to corruption. In saying this, the local businesses are rebuilding their livelihoods, but at times it felt like pleasing western shopping shoppers instead of the incredible charm the beach once held. Exploring was also part... More
