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.

  • The beach is excellent! Choose hotels at least 10 km from the airport! Bad reviews write apparently those who decided that in 300 m from the airport will be fine, and then there's airplanes flew.

  • For those who like spotting and aircraft. And don't listen to Anna, wonder where she takes your assumptions (previous review), the course planting depends on rain, and not from the new terminal. And something tells me that in the high season rose a little changing.
