Fodor's Expert Review Mai Khao Beach

Mai Khao Beach Beach

This is Phuket's northernmost beach, still a haven for leatherback turtles that lay their eggs here between November and February. It is a rare event, but it does happen sometimes. You can pop into 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. It's dangerous to swim during the monsoons. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: solitude; sunset; walking.
