One of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket. Its a little south, so much lesser traffic than Patong and other beaches. The waves and depth are perfect to have fun and ride the waves. We didnt have our swim wear and really missed diving in. Dont miss the coconut water on the beach. They are simply heavenly and would make... More

We had a lovely day here. There is a guy renting flimsy beds and umbrellas for 300 baht. It's a bit busier than nearby Kata Noi but still very nice beach. We both got several very mild stings in the sea on our legs - there was nothing around to see so can only assume it was tiny jellies or... More

Simply a beautiful beach facing the Andaman Sea. We spent 2 afternoons here. Amazing water, so clear. Can get a bit rough with the waves, but super manageable and fuuuuun!

Phuket has raised its game since our last visit. Hawkers gone, sunbeds gone and umbrellas only allowed on 10% of the beach. This is proper beach life. Well done!!
