Phuket and the Andaman Coast Sights

Nai Thon and Layan Beaches

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 05/29/2013

Fodor's Review

A few miles north of Bang Thao Bay, follow a smaller highway off the main routes (4030 and 4031) along a scenic coastline reminiscent of California's Pacific Coast Highway. These beaches are good for swimming and snorkeling in the dry season. Layan is a wildlife hotspot, as the lake behind the beach attracts lots of wild fowl. Nai Thon is 1-km long and still has few accommodations. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: snorkeling; swimming; walking.
