Nai Harn Beach Sports & Activities

What to Do in Nai Harn Beach

Nai Harn Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket with its excellent water quality. It's encompassed on both sides by jungle-and-palm covered mountains and there's a large freshwater lagoon inland. Never overcrowded, even in high season, Nai Harn's usually busier at weekends as it is popular with both Thais and expats.

Many tourists who come to Phuket never make it to experience this wonderful stretch of sand. At the southern end the lagoon flows into the sea, creating a stream that children love to play in. All year round the water is a comfortable 29°C. Flat, lake-like crystal-clear water invites you for a dip from November to May.

Beach volleyball

You can enjoy a round of beach volleyball if you want to stay active but dry on Nai Harn Beach. Apart from sunbathing, the beach is popular for watersports, swimming and snorkelling. There's a volleyball net right on the sand that's often used by locals, but you can join in if you fancy a game.
