Airplanes spotting
Feb 2021
this is the place where u can get close to seeing airplanes landing at Phuket airport. it's situated at the end of the runway towards Mao Kao beach. very deserted area. due to the pandemic, there isn't many planes coming in to phuket so if u r going there to spot the airplanes, pls check the schedule for planes landing else u gonna waste your time there.

Deserted and beautiful
Mar 2020
This is one of our favourite locations in the world. Mai Khao is a beautiful 7-mile beach that is usually deserted. The sea can be a little rough for swimming and the sand can be hard to walk on, but this dramatic beachfront with forest backdrop is our idea of heaven.

Long Sandy Beach without a crowd
Feb 2020 • Friends
This beach is right next to JW Marriot Phuket Resort and Spa, which has kayaks and sailboats for rent to sail in the beautiful water of Phuket. I came in a low season, the long sandy beach only attracted a small crowd with mainly families. I strolled along the coast and watched the sunset. A time well spent!

Nice beach day
Jan 2020 • Couples
Pros: One of the less crowded beaches especially away from the runway. Everyone is huddle up to take pics of the airplanes. Sand in water is nice and soft if u walk out to where the water hits ur waist. Good food by vendors I recommend the mango smoothies and chicken.
Cons: No beach umbrellas and not much shaded spots during high noon.

I'd recommend to anyone who wants a beach day and likes to airplane watch

Just once, if you are like to see new beaches
Jan 2020 • Family
Is not an hidden, stuning beach, is long, normal , not crawded, it deserve to visit it by your moto, join the quiet smell of the sea for 10 minutes and find after another one, better , maybe with more original thai pattern on it.
If you don t have time, don t go!
If you have time and a moto, try to find it just for some good memories.

Great beach by the airport strip
Dec 2019
Quite empty beautiful beach. Great place to see planes landing right over your head. Many people come there just for that. Quite an attraction.

Quiet beach, too much camber for running well
Dec 2019
A very quiet beach, mostly serving the resorts along it. However, they are hidden inland slightly, so the beach seems and feels nearly empty! At lower tide, one can run a number of miles along the packed sand, but the beach features a significant slope so beware if you have sensitive knees or don't like running of somewhat softer sand. It's possible to run in parts of the forest/through resorts/dirt road partially along the beach as well. I was chased by two very aggressive dogs that ran out of the forest towards the north end (Elephant zoo area), unprovoked, and chased me for half a mile baring teeth- I found that they were scared of the water so I ended up running in the water until they finally tired of chasing. After that, I always ran with a 1m branch I found, but wasn't bothered by dogs again. There appear to be few, if any, facilities along this beach if you're not staying at one of the resorts.
