“Clean, calm, peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

I watched the sunrise & the sunset on Mai Khao Beach. It was one of the best beach experiences I've had. Clean waters & massages on the beach - I actually slept off there!

“Beautiful white beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Lovely beach with smooth white sand. But beware of the bugs...! Lots of beetles everywhere at night though I guess it comes with the territory. Really nice for relaxing and swimming. Not much for water sports as is a quiet resort.

“Great Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Wonderful beach. Nice and empty. Not recommended for small children as the sand is clay-y. Wonderful for people who dont enjoy commercial beaches. Lots of waves. Great beach.

“Long stretch of empty beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

This is how I like my beaches, hardly anything there apart from sand sea and some trees. Very few visitors throughout the day when we visited in March. The beach does get deep quick and there is a bit of a under current if there is a breeze. Lovely location for a get away from it all beach. Not a parasol in sight.

“Mai Khao Beach Phuket, Thailand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Mai Khao Beach is an almost straight stretch of coastline situated on the northwestern side of Phuket. It's one heck of a long sandy beach with a continuous line of Casuarina trees running along just about the entire length of it's shore. In the past giant leather-back turtles would come ashore to lay their eggs on the beach but that doesn't happen anymore due to egg poaching, resort development and pollution. And just like there are no more turtles, there will be times when you could have the beach all to yourselves. Just be aware that the beach is not always in pristine condition as some people tend to leave their rubbish lying around instead of taking all their crap back with them when they leave. And between the months of May and November swimming is not such a good idea as the shore tends to drop of into the Andaman Sea rather suddenly.
