The vast stretches of beach in Mai Khao, once a nesting area for the giant leatherback turtle, are home to various aquatic and relaxation activities.
Step out of the city life by going to Mai Khao Beach and Naiyang Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Sirinat National Park and Nai Thon Beach. Explore Mai Khao's surroundings by going to Wat Sri Sunthon (in Si Sunthon), Ao Po Pier (in Pa Khlok) and Bang Pae Waterfalls (in Thep Krasattri). And it doesn't end there: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Wat Mongkol Wararam, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at Wat Phra Thong.

Quieter than nearby Patong Beach, the resort town of Karon offers a wide stretch of golden sand, which attracts mostly couples and families.

Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Karon: Phuket Town (Kayaking & Canoeing, Holy Trinity Church in Phuket, & more), Kamala (Wat Baan Kamala, Scuba & Snorkeling, & more) and Surin Beach (in Choeng Thale). There's lots more to do: get great views at Karon View Point, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, race across the water with a speed boat tour, and stroll through Yanui Beach.
