Ya Nui Beach, Rawai

4.3
#3 of 9 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.

  • In the morning on the beach, little people. Here come mainly at local picnics. There is a large parking lot for cars. Kayak rental. The beach itself is divided as two parts. Both scenic. Can not drive |)) more transparent, clear. Many fish, there are corals. There is a small natural Hill, from where you can make beautiful photo. You can reach the beach with Ravajja or Nai Harn are prosecuted. Close enough. Worth in the region of 200 baht, or on a bike, who moves around the island. There are natural shade from trees. You can take refuge from the Sun. In the daytime, people become a little more, but not critical.

  • Is harmed is remote rawai of about one kilometer. It is located between Cape Promthep and the Naï Harn beach. She is totally blank of the less perfect in contrast to its neighbor. It is not very extensive but allows an easy accessibility from the small road which led to a small parking lot to park his vehicle and more particularly his scooter. A "hut" restaurant is very nice to take a lunch in the shade of the giant yuccas, and before diving on rocky funds where the snorkeling is required. Fish clowns and other tropical species are visible in direct proximity of the shoreline and along the small mound that separates are Nui in two.

  • One of my favorite beaches in Phuket for the atmosphere it has. Its a very small tropical beach where you can relax and do good snorkeling too. Be aware of the tides however because usually at late afternoon there is low tide and you cannot enjoy the beach anymore.
  • Adequate parking area beside main road. Fine sand, calm water with minimal wave during morning and evening time (end Dec). Big boulder formation in centre of beach dividing beach into two nice sized spots.Healthy marine life thriving and swimming among rocks beside the beach such as fish, crabs and eels. Will definately visit again soon.....with snorkelling gear.
  • Great beach that isn’t too crowded. It is a great place for snorkeling as there is a small reef off the the beach. There are also two Thai restaurants across the street that do delicious Thai food.
  • This is a lovely small beach that not many people visit. I would strongly recommend visiting this little beach. Just watch out for the rocks underneath the water.
  • Secluded and away from the hoards of tourists that can overrun the area. Well worth the 5 minute drive over the cape. Stunning views and very basic and rustic restaurants across the road. Good food.
