Mai Khao Beach, Phuket

4.1
#12 of 27 in Beaches in Phuket
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.

  • One of the best beaches in Thailand. Long coastline. Yellow sandy beach, bordered by a strip of greenery. The turquoise sea. Immediately the depth. Swim is a pleasure. It is interesting to observe in flying and reaching the landing aircraft. An unforgettable spectacle

  • Drove here from Krabi and donated! Thrilled was not only a child, but my wife! And it doesn't matter whether you like aviation or not, the spirit still will grab! Almost every five minutes sets the plane flying right over your head! Very beautifully, in combination with a nice beach, the sea and the small number of people put five and all advise!

Where to stay in Mai Khao

While there are plenty of accommodation options in Mai Khao, be sure to book well in advance if you're traveling here in high season: January is the most popular month. Look for guesthouses and hotels in the northern part of the region if you enjoy sightseeing, long walks, and relaxing in pristine nature. Be sure to conduct a lot of research before you set off or book anything, as a lot of websites can contain false or misleading imagery. Budget-friendly options in Mai Khao include camping--camping areas are abundant here--as well as bungalows. However, those who want to splurge on their beach retreat will find opportunities to do so in Mai Khao's holiday resorts and hotels.
