#3 of 10 in Parks in Rawai
Sheltered by a cove and high cliffs, Yanui 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.

  • We visited this beach with the idea here to snorkel. It's not a very large sandy beach, surrounded by greenery. If you are on the right side of the Beach the sea in would you encounter on many stone where you over it. On the left hand side of the beach there is a piece where the stones have been removed and you can something easier the water in. In the middle of the beach begins a rock which further the water in. If you are in the sea for snorkeling you will find here various fish, sea urchins, etc. A lot of different fish can see, beautiful color and different sizes. Also a small octopus and various sea hedgehogs so. The water is fairly clear, only closer to the beach can sight less what opstuift through the sand. On the beach you have some ligplekken in the shade but these are quickly occupied. Well there is the possibility to rent a parasol. At the beach there is a parking for cars and scooters. If you cross the road you have two restaurants that fine affordable.

  • After be circling around the South of the island for a few days I have found that it is one of the best beaches, it hurts to be so small, but still was lucky that it was not so crowded. The stones... and if you have to go carefully, but once the passes is priceless! Much coral and much life to few meters by which is a must for lovers of snorkeling.
