Mai Khao Beach Attractions

What to See in Mai Khao Beach

Going to Mai Khao Beach is the ultimate in getting away from it all. There are times when you’ll be absolutely alone on this, Phuket’s longest beach. If you’re into the sun, sand and sea in a solitary way then this is the very place for you.

A good 30-minute drive from Patong, the only man-made attractions here are a few five-star resorts, Turtle Village Shopping ‘Mall’ and Wat Mai Khao.

Sirinath National Park

The park comprises both Nai Yang and Mai Khao beaches and covers over 10 miles of beautiful white sandy beach on the north end of the island. Most planes fly over the park when landing at Phuket’s International Airport. The shore drops steeply into deeper levels, creating unpredictable and potentially hazardous water currents during the monsoon season. This is just fine with the Giant Ridley Sea Turtle who can weigh up to 850 kg (1874lb) and who tend to be shy creatures and prefer the beach to themselves. Between November and February each year these lumbering giants clamber onto the sandy shore at night to lay their eggs.

Unfortunately the number of sea-turtles who make their yearly appearance continues to decline. This has led to efforts locally to increase the turtle population, with education programs for villagers and the release into the wild of turtles spawned in captivity. The turtles usually lay the eggs very late at night and you are allowed to witness this wonder of nature, but try not to disturb the turtles laboring at their task. Authorities maintain strict surveillance on the turtle eggs and move many of them to special hatchery fields.  Read More...

Wat Mai Khao

Lung Poh Dang, the abbot of Wat Mai Khao, is known as being a strict monk who pays attention to meditation, not materialism. To this end visitors will not see that many fancy buildings in Wat Mai Khao besides the beautiful main chapel, the simply-built karepriiy hall and monks’ dormitory. Still, in spite (or maybe because) of its austerity, it’s a well-loved place.
