This beach is very long so can walk for miles but the incline makes it rather difficult. Of course it’s quite hot in Phuket so best to walk before 10 am. You can get a good workout but not what I’d hoped for when I...More

If you are looking for a party, keep on moving as this is not the beach for you. Mai Khao is steeper and you’ll need to bring your own chairs, umbrella, but the beauty of it is tough to beat. We found it nearly empty...More

Perfect place to do some plane spotting while enjoying the beach! I've been to Maho beach in the Caribbean and this beach is just as great! I had a one day layover and stayed nearby because I only had 18 hours and I highly recommend...More

This is the longest beach in Phuket, so my rating is based on the section near Nai Yang beach (close to the airport and Grand West Sands). We stayed at a villa facing the beach, so it was very convenient for us to visit the...More

This beach is far from crowded, pretty much empty. You can practically count the number of beach goers here. There is nothing here but beach, no rental sunbeds, or sun umbrella so pretty much sand, sand and sea. If you walk towards the airport during...More

Mai Khao beach is one of the longest in Phuket. Lots of great 5* hotels with well known names. It is just 15-20min drive from the airport, but don’t worry about the noise - you will not hear the planes even a little. Speaking of...More

This is the longest stretch of beach in phuket and is probably good for swimming at some times of the year but not in September. Its the tail end of monsoon and there are strong currents and a steep embankment into the deep water. The...More

Reviewing this several years ago, I have received many helpful votes. I decided to revisit this scenic spot and check if my previous comments were still relevant. I had warned that whilst very picturesque, it was unsafe to swim here due to hidden dangers to...More

We stayed at Sala Phuket Resort which is situated on this 11 km stretch of beach. Very little tourism and nicely isolated which means you are often alone on this beautiful beach. Caution required if you plan on swimming. The beach has no lifeguards and...More

Hi Gavin, apologies for the late reply, Mai Khao is really far from Patong beach. It is easily an hour drive away. Mai Khao is a place really away from the crowd, with a long stretch of beach to enjoy but it is definitely... More
