Holidays to Nai Thon Beach offer peaceful sands and open views out to sea – a laidback alternative to Phuket's wilder side.

Undiscovered calm

Nai Thon Beach is located on Phuket's north-west coast in southern Thailand. It's a rare quiet corner in an otherwise rowdy region, so don't expect lots of busy restaurants and buzzing bars – just laidback local eateries. The sea's clear of jet-skis, giving you peace to hear the waves and distant squawking parrots.

Snorkelling and scuba diving

For a glimpse of life under the waves, swim to the coral reefs off Nai Thon Beach or trail along quiet coves in a traditional wooden boat. Cross your fingers for a magical encounter with harmless leopard sharks at Shark Point.

Phuket-style pampering

Indulge in a traditional Thai massage in a thatched jungle-side hut, or opt for an oh-so-luxurious milk bath. Then try some local specialties at one of the little dining spots on Nai Thon Beach Road, like fresh papaya salad or a rich coconut curry.
