Fantastic Thai food with a good price. Try the cafe on the beach beside Sala Phuket and you will not regret the freshness and tastiness of the food dished out by the husband and wife.

Beach was right in front of our resort pool. I have been to Phuket many times. This is definitely the best beach besides Karon Beach. The beach is long, clean and not crowded (accessible by resort guest). No boats in vicinity too. Perfect for sunset watch and photography. Beach wave is strong. We really had a great time spending an... More

This beach is not famous on its sand and might not able to compare to the rest of the beaches in Phuket, however, its location is located next to the airport. Coming to this beach you won't expecting beach, but watching landing of airplane.

It's beautiful here, especially if you just wanna walk along the beach and be alone with your thoughts. Better if you have a loved one to walk along with. I just loved listening to the sound of the waves. But yeah, the waves are quite strong so i dont recommend you swim here.

Might be the location that makes this beach unspoiled compare to the rest of the beaches in Phuket. Settled on the top of the island far away from all the busy tourist attraction and separated from the other beaches by Phuket airport. There are quite many local bamboo hut kind of restaurants serving you freshly prepare seafood dishes local style... More

This beach is great for walking along the shoreline but we found the waves too strong to even contemplate swimming in. If you walk slightly inland, you will find a number of places offering relaxing Thai massage by the beach. This is highly recommended - as the sea breeze makes the experience very rewarding.

Long stretch of beach, clean sand and very quiet. Great for a long walk and contemplation. Large waves and strong current not safe for swimming during the monsoon months.

My husband and I spent a week on this beach during low season (our visit was in July) and loved it! If you are not looking for tourist attractions (scuba, snorkeling, island visits, etc) and just want a place to rest and relax, Mai Khao is the place for you! We stayed at Bungalows @ Mai Khao, not far from... More
