Mai Khao Beach, Phuket

(4.1/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Get in a little beach time all to yourself at Mai Khao Beach, an 11 km (7 mi) stretch of soft golden sand that is deserted more often than not. Still relatively undeveloped and part of a national park, the beach remains something of a hidden gem. The peaceful atmosphere here is refreshingly lacking in pushy vendors and powerboats. Be wary when swimming, however, as there is a drop off into the sea a short distance from the shore. The waves are strong and powerful, so only strong adult swimmers should venture into the waters.

  • Beach, near airport, naturally, its main attraction is the prizemljajushhiesja planes. You can come to the parking lot and through the Centara beach. Beach with lifeguards. Fairly deserted, with coniferous trees, eerie noise from aircraft engines, they land, take off, constant crashes. Here the back waters and rapidly increasing depth, small children are not suitable. Oh and crazily littered Beach, mountains of garbage (((
