Phuket and the Andaman Coast Sights

Mai Khao Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

This is Phuket's northernmost beach, still a haven for Leatherback turtles that lay their eggs here between November and February. It's an increasingly rare event, but one new nest was found less than two weeks after the tsunami hit. You can pop to the Marriott Resort for a bite at their beach club, or visit the next-door Sirinath Marine National Park (established to protect the turtles) here. Mai Khao connects with Nai Yang Beach to form Phuket's longest stretch of sand,

and is ideal for long walks or a jog. Dangerous to swim during the monsoons. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: solitude; sunset; walking.
