With its sandy beaches and wilderness setting, holidays to Nai Yang Beach are a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Fly in, stretch out

Despite its location on one of south Thailand's largest and liveliest islands, Nai Yang Beach feels pretty remote. This north-west Phuket gem offers idyllic sandy beaches on a crescent-shaped stretch of coastline. It's the perfect place to unwind with a good book and a lip-smacking cocktail.

Park life

Nai Yang Beach is hugged by Sirinat National Park – that puts you a stone's skip from mangroves, tropical jungles and the protected turtle nesting sites of Mai Kho Beach. For high-seas adventure, take a boat trip across the sea to the Similan Islands and scuba in a world-famous dive spot.

Simple pleasures

Nai Yang Beach perfectly sets the scene for rest and relaxation, so it'd be rude not to indulge. There's plenty of space to lounge on the sand, and a few small shops to keep you stocked up on suncream and ice-cold drinks. Beachfront eateries aren't far away either, with tantalising seafood snacks on standby.
