There's really nothing crazy special about Nia Yang. The beach is alright, lots of trash everywhere and at night th dogs are super mean but the town itself is a sleepy village. If you're looking for the energy of Patong, you won't find it here. It's quiet, during monsoon there is nothing really going on but I liked that. I... More

Phuket airport is located almost on this beach but the airport is fenced. From/to Phuket airport Taxis charge 200 Thai bhat bit expensive for about a 2 km (round about) ride to/from the beach. Plantations and huts are there along the beach sand. The sea was calm with small tides. When I visited around 2:00 pm saw a lot of... More

We stayed in Nai Yang @ Dewa for a week and it was a fantastic area. Love the local village, markets and the authentic vibe of the local area. Also the tsunami history of the hotel ruins in the village is quite interesting. However as far as the beach goes it was pretty terrible, I know Australian beaches are a... More

Beach is at NW corner of the island near the airport and away from the hustle and bustle of the popular beaches. However it still has the essential shops (pharmacy, mini-mart, beach restaurant) which makes it worth a visit if you are close by. Be weary of jellyfish as we got stung by one close to the shore. Locals were... More

Nice beach for a short visit. I spent two nights there at a hotel by the beach. So relaxing! Not so cheap prices, I would say. There's a short walk to a beach for aeroplane-spotting. Also the abandoned hotel close by is an interesting spot to visit. Nothing much else to do but take it easy.

Best beach for young kids in the northern coast. Very close to Phuket airport. It's shallow, so you can wade through till neck level and enjoy riding the waves while still on your feet. Unlike Mai Khao beach which is very steep and probably only good for deep sea divers and marathon swimmers! There are several "roadside"-"beachside" places to dine,... More

Beautiful beach next to an airport. Comparing to the south of the island quite and chilled place. Beach surround by 2 reefs, you can get a good reef surfing session but not for a beginners. Definitely you should try massage on the beach and better before sunset, they're gorgeous

I've been in Phuket for two weeks and I've been to all beaches on the island, including Phi Phi, and this one was the cleanest of all (all were full of plastic bottles and bags). Also I enjoyed the fact that there are few hotels around so it was not crowded. A very tranquil beach, ideal for small children.

The 3 day visit to Nai Yang provided mostly good memories. Coming after 7 nights in Patong, it was definitely quieter and the beach was, although quite good, spoilt by the rubbish tossed from boats, shore guests etc. The walk up to the airport was studded by plastic bottles, bags, flotsam and jetsam and with this I wouldn't camp on...
