Nice little strip of sand and rocks. Very busy during peak season though. Umbrella and mats available for rent. Lovely restaurant across the road.

One of my favorite beaches in Phuket, not many people know this beach and that's why it is not really busy. The snorkeling was awesome as there is a small reef just offshore. We went kayaking which we really liked. Pretty cheap as we paid 200 Thai bath for an hour.

Beautiful beach, but gets a bit crowded by noon and is family friendly. Can rent a comfortable shade (Umbrella and Mats) for 200 Bahts and use it the entire day. It can get warmer by the day, so please ensure you carry your sunscreen. Has a lot of shops and restaurants around the beach and you will surely not go... More

One of my favourites beaches . Great for snorkelling and relax especially if you don't like crowded beaches. You can rent a canoa and go to potato island which is perfect for snorkelling

Along with Ao Yane beach, Ya Nui is great for snorkeling with family. The water is gentle, and shallow enough for beginners. Lots of fish but corals are mostly dead. The left side of the rock is better for snorkeling. I would not recommend it for sand lovers, its small so there isn't much of it.

First a little bit disappointed with the beach, but actually quite ok and less waves than other places. Good for swimming and away from the big crowds.

Even though this beach is lovely and all, you must be careful of the rocks ... I got cut while i was there =/ ! This beach is a MUST SEE as it is one of the most beautiful beaches ever on the island. My boyfriend and I enjoyed it a lot but sadly we didn't bring our swimsuit that... More

Less waves than on Nai Harn, but instead the bottom is rocky in some places and you risk hurting yourself if it is stormy. On the left side of the beach you can snorkel a bit if the sea is calm, all the fish is hiding near the small island and the shore.

Maybe best Beach in Phuket. Some nice food places, with canoe and mask/snorkel rental available. Excellent marine life to be seen around the rock formation which splits the beach. Marine life includes Lion fish, Puffer, Angel fish, Parrot fish etc
