This is one of the best beaches i've seen. It was an amazing feeling when golden sand was touched by my feet. Since we were staying in a hotel near mai khao we enjoyed the real natural beuty during our stay.

very fantastic view in the evening time. One of the peace and silence beach for relaxation. Very good moody place. I love to visit there again soon.

We were staying at the Anantara, and we were so surprised how empty the beach was. On so many days my wife and I were literally the only two people on kilometres of gorgeous beach. Admittedly red and yellow flags were up indicating not to swim and the first few days i heeded the warnings and didn't venture in. But... More

It's raining season now so only a few people at Mai Khao beach. It's very long and almost untouched. you can't swim but the feeling is great. enjoying listening the shouting of the angry sea.

The beach near several hotels and there has several small shos for eat (not expensive). We arrived around 5pm and we can see the sunset on the beach.

Just several resorts reside here ,like the JW Marriot and Anantara , its not suitable for swimming even in the calm season,because there's a sharp drop off to... More

The resort was fantastic, breakfast was a feast and the apartments are very large and immaculate. A shuttle bus to the JW Marriott with a good choice of restaurants is easy and free. The location is a bit out of the way nut ideal for families with a hire car.

We were staying at Anantara Villas about a km from the beach. The beach itself was beautiful and unspoiled and clean however, at this time of year, the ocean is treacherous due to high waves, rip tides and very strong current. Impossible to enjoy the water---the best time for swimming is, according to locals, from October to March. One tourist... More

I loved this beach since it's peaceful and clean. It's quite far from downtown, about 45 mins by car, which made it less crowded and great for relaxing, and sunset here was beautiful. Anyway, everyone should be careful, especially with kids, since the beach was quite deep and steep that you may easily falling down. The waves on the day... More
