All Attractions in Nai Yang Beach

Nai Yang Beach

The northern end of Nai Yang beach is part of Sirinath National Park and thus has no development. There are a few salas (open sided pavilions) in which to sit if the sun or the rain get too much and the beach has little of the commercial feel that pervades in Patong or Karon.

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.

Wat Nai Yang (Wat Mongkol Wararam)

Nai Yang Temple is another local wat worth a visit as on its grounds, among many other interesting structures, stands a beautiful wooden abbot’s house built in 1954.
