I went to Mai Khao Beach around 11am and I have the beach for myself. Beach is gorgeous; white sand and blue water. What make Mai Khao so special is that you can see the plane take off and landing (depend on season). It is...More

We stayed at the JW Marriott near Mai Khao beach. The resort staff is courteous and always ready to please. Some of the restaurant staff could have been a little more attentive to diners. The Marriott breakfast buffet can only be described as a feast...More

mostly on mai khao beach, you can find luxurious hotels and resorts. Accessible from resorts to resorts, but the guests still have their own privacy. The wave is quite high and rough. Each resort puts the red flag as a caution in case the sea...More

Hi Gavin, apologies for the late reply, Mai Khao is really far from Patong beach. It is easily an hour drive away. Mai Khao is a place really away from the crowd, with a long stretch of beach to enjoy but it is definitely... More
