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

This beach is located not far from the Phuket International airport. Between the Mai Khao beach and Nai Thon beach.The beach itself was great ,a bit deserted , not too many tourists wander around here.We observed that the beach might swimmable , but still must be very careful of the strong current, its not advisable to swim during the monsoon/rainy...

Not many tourists know about this beach. Only a few kilometers from the airport and yet far more peaceful and cleaner than most other Phuket beaches. Ideal for the final couple of days before you board the plane.

Long walks along beach, can take you to where you are under where planes take off. Great sunsets. Couple of nice restaurants, with the kite surfers there always seems to be lots of action along beach

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.
