Mai Khao Beach, Phuket

#12 of 30 in Beaches in Phuket
Get in a little beach time all to yourself at Mai Khao Beach, an 11 km (7 mi) stretch of soft golden sand that is deserted more often than not. Still relatively undeveloped and part of a national park, the beach remains something of a hidden gem. The peaceful atmosphere here is refreshingly lacking in pushy vendors and powerboats. Be wary when swimming, however, as there is a drop off into the sea a short distance from the shore. The waves are strong and powerful, so only strong adult swimmers should venture into the waters.

  • It was the beach of the hotel and was really spectacular for the swell, the vastness of the beach and the few tourists there were. The worst thing than at high tide there was little sandy area. The vegetation reaches the same shore.

  • Mai Khao Beach or “White wood beach” This beach is very interesting as it locates very close to the runway. You can lay on the beach to see the bottom of the airplane while landing at Phuket airport. You can park at Nai yang beach and walk to Plane spotting point at Mai Khao beach. It takes only 15min walk on the beach.
  • We were here with my family and my beloved bf! We took a lot of pictures and enjoyed the good view. Just be careful where to swim okay? Make sure you swim in an area where you’re allowed to swim.
