Nai Harn is increasingly one of the island's more popular destinations. Once known only to in-the-know locals, it has been very firmly "discovered". However, as the small bay is home to only a few hotels, restaurants and shops, it retains its quiet charm. With The Royal Phuket Yacht Club nearby, it is a popular anchorage for boats during the high season.
Great for swimming from November to April, care should be take in the low season (May-October) when there can be strong currents. The local restaurants just above the beach make a great place to relax with a sundowner.
Further south is Ya Nui, a sandy cove that attracts snorkelers and divers. Another out-of-the way spot nearby is the tiny beach of Ao Sane, a great spot for snorkeling, reached by taking the road that starts at The Royal Phuket Yacht Club car park.
