Mai Khao Beach, Phuket
(4.1/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • Than good May Kao? No crowds of people, he totally pustynen. It is very long, you can wander along the banks of the infinite. There are ships and boats, respectively, no debris. The few hotels of pretty good class-they clean beaches. That is very important-sills. The slope of the plchda large enough, so sills-Beda mnlgih other Phuket beaches-not felt. However, for this most joggers slope can become an insurmountable obstacle. So much so that the sand is quite loose. To the pluses of this beach include the absence of beggars and vendors. By cons-still the same slope. With young children to swim, sometimes dangerous, although many parents on such trifles do not pay attention.

  • If you prefer the quiet chill people not ready to sand phalarn phlung touch sensations from the story over the past 70 years, with a history of peaceful beaches here, it used to be that the spawning of sea turtles, and is the only one beach in Phuket.
