Nai Thon Beach
On the west coast of the island of Phuket is a secluded, pristine beauty known as Nai Thon Beach. It’s gorgeous landscape and gentle ambiance void from any commercial vibe make it a perfect place for a getaway.
If you’re done with all the party and noise of Patong Beach and Kata Beach, you may consider touring Nai Thon Beach. The trip to this secluded paradise is in itself an attraction – the route leads you to the last remaining jungle of Phuket, and to beautiful coastlines painted with beautiful colours. A calming ambiance welcomes tourists to the island – you’ll hear waves here instead of banging music. Enjoy Nai Thon’s rocky coves which you can explore via scuba diving or a long tail. If you’re not an adventure junky, you can just settle under one of the palm trees – taking in the pristine sight and the serenity of the place that is totally worth it.
Nai Thon beach is located in the northwestern part of Phuket, approximately 5 kilometres from the main island.
