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

This is a lovely beach that has a separate area for swimmers and another area for snorkelers. It's great for beginner snorkelers because it offers places that are not too deep, but if one swims out just a little farther the water gets deeper and the visibility is good and there's quite a bit of live coral.

Beautiful beach but not very clean. Obviously there is no one who maintain the beach and keeps it clean.

Very small beach with two restaurants and one "beach bar". Lots of rocks hidden under the sand which may cause some injuries if you don't see them, and you probably won't because of waves.

This beach is slightly off the beaten track, a small hidden oasis and a cool place to spend time. Because of its location there is not a lot of tourists with makes it an even better place to relax.

We stayed in Rawai and then Nai Harn but kept coming back to the allure of Ya Nui. Small but lovely beach with a unique character. Nice beach bars and restaurants with friendly people.

This is a very small beach located between Nai Harn Beach and Promthep Cape. There are not many people here and it is very laid back. The beach is not wide so it would not tolerate a large tourist group anyway. The snorkeling here is not bad. One part of the natural cove has a rocky entry and the other... More

Small bay with a lovely beach. The beach was quiet and uncrowned, without the touristy shops or peddlers.

It's quite small, but a lovely spot to take photos. Wouldn't recommend for a full day at the beach with a family.
