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.

  • Were the other beaches. But this beach is one of the cleanest beaches in Phuket. Pure sand with no debris or wood, little people, and the sea is clean

For 30 meters to checkpoint turn left, it is possible to bypass the free)

  • Great beach to go to in tandem with the Soi Dog Foundation. The winds had the planes taking off, which was cool, but not as cool as them landing. Be warned that the police can come down there from tim...  more »
