    From Bang Tao to Nai Yang Beach, there are three idyllic white sand beaches nestled between the rocky headlands. Seldom visited by large numbers of tourists, these three hideaways are a welcome change from some other west coast beaches, where jet skis and the like can be a real nuisance.

    North of Laem Sai and Nai Yang Beach, Mai Khao, a 7-mile-long beach now beginning to be developed, stretches longer than any other on Phuket's west coast.

    A National Park borders the ocean along some of this beach. The Indigo Pearl and Nai Yang Beach Resort are hidden behind trees at the southern end of the beach, and the Phuket International Airport terminal can be seen, about 1 mile north of the hotel. Transport can be arranged from the hotel either to the airport or to town.

    Many small, open-air restaurants and small shops line the south end of Nai Yang Beach.

  • Laem Sai Beach

    In the middle and the largest of the three beaches on the headland, Laem Sai offers good holding in the middle of the bay in 6 - 10 metres on a sandy bottom.

    Good snorkeling may be found on either point. Ashore, you will find a new hotel development that extends the length of the bay and a road that leads to the airport.

    Anchor in approximately 6 - 10 metres on a sandy bottom to the north or south of the reef outcrop in front of the two hotels visible behind the trees.

    Good facilities are available at the hotels and many local restaurants ashore, and transport to town or the airport may be arranged. Read More...

    Look for anchorage 100 metres offshore from the little squatters' restaurants, about 1 mile or more south of the bar marking the entrance to the bridge.

    The sand bars around the channel entrance are constantly shifting, and entry is not recommended in a keeled vessel. It should not be attempted without local knowledge even in a shoal-draft boat.

    The beach is steep, and the sand coarser than that on other west coast beaches. The highway runs close to the beach, near the restaurants, and local buses can be hailed heading north or south.

    Just south of these restaurants is the 5-star JW Marriott Resortand time share condominiums. Read More...
