Nai Yang Beach Activities
What to Do in Nai Yang Beach
Nai Yang Beach is a pretty quiet place. Apart from a few surf/kiteboard shops, along with an assortment of bars and restaurants along the front, not a lot goes on there.
It’s light years away from noisy Patong Beach and more of a place to take a walk through the Sirinath National Park or to work on your tan.

Learn or practice with a yoga master while staying at Dewa or Indigo Pearl Resort. Prices start from 1,000 baht per session. If you stay at the Indigo Pearl have a look at their private sessions with their own teacher. Prices start from 1,800 baht per session which you can take individually or with a partner or in a group session. Both venues require 24-hours advance notice.
Thai Cooking & Fruit Carving Classes
Impressed with Thai cuisine? Then why not enroll at Thai cooking classes at one of Nai Yang’s top resorts and get to learn the secrets of Thai herbs and how to work their wonders? The classes usually start off with the teacher taking students along to the local market to see the real deal and to buy some ingredients for the class.
Just exploring the market alone is worth it as it’s full of surprises. Classes are of varying lengths and advance booking is a must. You may want to enroll in fruit-carving classes as they are also fascinating.
