Nai Yang Beach Attractions

What to See in Nai Yang Beach

Nai Yang is a casuarina-lined atmospheric beach in the north of the island. The beach itself plays host to several bars and seafood restaurants and is a centre for kite surfing while just over the road stands the five-star Indigo Pearl.

Attractions include a colourful local market and temple as well as the impressive Sirinat National Park.


Nai Yang Market

A colourful community market nearby operates three days a week. Shopping at this type of market can be a lot of fun and an eye opening experience for out-of-town visitors. There are lots of products on display, from fresh food, tropical vegetables and fruits as well as CD’s, DVD’s, clothes, handicrafts and more.

Opening Hours: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from mid-afternoon till about 19:00
Location: Opposite Udom’s Bungalow, about a few hundred metres back from Nai Yang Beach

Sirinath National Park

Sirinath (sometimes known as Sirinat) National Park covers an area of 90 square kilometres, from west of Phuket International Airport all the way to the island's northern tip. The park encompasses Nai Yang, Nai Thon and Mai Khao beaches. The park offers basic, government-run bungalows and tents for rent, or you can stay in one the several hotels nearby.

At the northern end of the park is a mangrove forest with saltwater swamps supporting unique eco-systems. A nature trail and an 800-metre wooden walkway have been installed, along with signs indicating and explaining the various species of plants and animals to be found here. Entrance is at the northern tip of the island, near the Sarasin Bridge connecting the island to Phang Nga Province.  Read More...
