Ya Nui Beach, Rawai

4.1
#4 of 8 in Parks in Rawai
Sheltered by a cove and high cliffs, Ya Nui Beach stretches for some 300 m (984 ft) and gently slopes into waters abundant with corals. In addition to swimming and snorkeling, the beach also offers good kayaking, bodyboarding, and fishing opportunities. You can rent snorkeling gear on site, and enjoy the food and souvenirs offered by the area's street vendors. Just 700 m (2,297 ft) off the shore, a small island makes for a nice paddle or motor boat trip. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Rawai trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Very stony Beach and to our time very fully in mid-November, man can with a towel most Beach leiegen or with a daybed, the beach a little is more than the NAI harn beach in my opinion the best beach of phuket. Snorkeling due Turist are only a few fish alsoehr for beginners suitable.

  • The reviews could not understand a little, or a lot of people there are very contradictory. We arrived at 8.30 am, people had very little, quiet Bay, waves do not. Swam with masks, many hedgehogs, star of saw, and all sorts of fish, of which the name of a mystery to me))) did not say that right colorfully, but quite well! To the 11:00 people have been tightened, and virtually all Russians! And because the little Beach, concentration of people on 1 square meter is pleased with the high. If you just purchased, without masks-see no reason to go here. Better Nai Harn

  • This is a very nice beach, it looks like some hidden small spot. One of my favorites on Phuket
  • This beach is very dirty. Garbage everywhere. Surprisingly, bigger beaches are much cleaner (Kata, Nai Harn). The locals who have businesses there should spend 15 minutes each day collecting garbage instead of just chatting and do nothing.
  • Very nice and quiet beach. People snorkelling at day. Beautiful at night too with view of other beach and many small creatures come out.
  • Picturesque small beach with front swimming area and left side shallow bay with clean enough water for snorkelling. Bring swimming shoes, because of rocky bottom.
  • Great for snorkeling, kayaking or just lazing about. Teeming with life on healthy coral reef.

Where to stay in Rawai

A long-established beach resort, Rawai offers eclectic sleeping options along the eastern coast of the peninsula. Head right up to the beach for attractively designed resort hotels, rental condominiums, and spa hotels, charging relatively high prices for their extensive views and easy access to beaches and boat tours. Away from the coastline you can find similar resort-style accommodations, with lower prices and a little more privacy. Other budget-friendly options include rental bungalows and basic hotels.
