Ya Nui Beach, Rawai

#4 of 9 in Parks in Rawai
Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Just walking a small beach, hin, very clean and suitable to the swim or lie in the Sun. In the immediate vicinity you can find also food and drink. Let yourself be charmed by this small piece of beach

  • Yan Nui(or Yanui) Beach is absolutely gorgeous and well worth a visit. It can be a bit crowded, but that shouldn't deter you from a visit, just try and get there early. Well worth a stop.  more »
  • Another little gem in the South of Phuket. Great place to snorkel from the beach and away from the crowds! Nice local restaurant to eat seafood at too.  more »

  • 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.
  • Another very groovy Beach. Small not so crowded seems to be a lot more local people here.
  • Dirty beach too many trash and broken glass! They need to provide a trash bin! Really dirty!

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.
