“Longest beach on Phuket”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Very nice beach in Phuket, more then 8 km long, no people, only sun, sand and waves. Excellent place to stay alone, or just walking and enjoying the nature

“away from it all”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

Stayed at Renaissance Resort and Spa at Mai Khao beach.
The beach is just perfect for a peaceful relaxation.
Its undeveloped, very natural and virgin.
Renaissance has loungers for you to use.
The beach has limited/no f&b or activities unless you rent some kayaks from the hotel you're staying.

“Far from anywhwere”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

Too far north and the beach drops off very steeply into the sea. Not the best place to swim in the sea.

“Great hidden beach”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

I found this beach by accident but its now my favorite. I don't like the long walk back up to the parking but that helps keep it hidden and more secluded. some nice restaurants and not too much hassle from local vendors.

“Peaceful, Tranquil, Serene and absolutely Boring”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Of all the beaches on the west of Phuket, this is the most boring. The beach is narrow and the depth sudden. The current and wave can get too strong to swim safely in. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is it. At least at Nai Yang beach which is almost similar in traits, has beachside restaurants and shops. Mai Khao has almost nothing.
On the plus side, nearly all the resorts on Mai Khao are superb, so enjoy the property instead.
If you are looking for a quiet beach, head north to Pilai beach at Phang Nga where the beach is wider and the sea swimmable; or a little south of Mai Khao to Nai Thon with nice beach and calm sea, where there are at least a few other places to eat. If you want a balance of peace and some convenience, go to Kamala, Surin or Karon.
