Ya Nui Beach in Phuket

Everything You Need to Know About Ya Nui Beach

Ya Nui Beach lies in the shadow of Phromthep Cape and Windmill Viewpoint, 2 of Phuket's most popular viewpoints. It's a charming little cove offering good snorkelling, kayaking, and fishing. The sand is soft and comfortable, with plenty of shells for kids to collect.

The neighbouring island of Ko Kaeo Yai, is around 700 metres out in the sea. When the weather is calm, it's possible to paddle out to check out corals or to visit Nai Harn. Local fishermen climb the rocky promontory to cast off or simply brave the waves with casting nets during overcast days.
