Get lost by the simplicity and privacy at “Yanui Beach”.

Yanui Beach is a hidden and serene beach on the way from Laem Phromthep to Nai Lan Beach. Years ago, this beach would not have been known by many. Apart from its simplicity and pristine nature, this fine sandy beach with its splendid curve, coupled with the surrounding indigo blue sea, has captured everyone’s heart these days. With a handful of tourists, this beach offers you with privacy. What could be more enjoyable than lying down on the sand and read your favourite books or spend some quality time doing family activities. All these simply turn Yanui Beach into a paradise on earth.

Take the road heading towards Laem Phrom Thep and drive downhill by 2 kilometres. There is a free parking space on the seaside. Ya Nui Beach is best visited in the evening because you could ride a kayak and witness the last of the sun. The view of the huge red sun that gently touches the sea surface will be one of your memorable moments.

Unleash your adrenalin with the adventures at “Patong Beach”

For those who are keen on the vibrant nightlife and water sports, Patong Beach is your major destination. Extending for 9 kilometres in a U-shape, with the hill ridges at both ends, Patong Beach is a safe harbour from the wind and strong waves. The azure water is perfect for water sports, including jet skiing, parachuting, speed boat, sailing, and many more. With numerous shops and restaurants lined up on both sides, Patong Beach is a perennial favourite among tourists from every corner around the world. It is not surprising why Patong is the most well-known beach in Phuket.

The most astonishing surf spot at “Kata Beach”

Kata is a small beach on Phuket’s southern coast. The beach is just 1.5 km long and has a crescent shape, with a crab statue as its landmark at the front. Kata Beach is broken down into two areas: Kata Yai and Kata Noi, which are split by a 500-metre rocky peninsula. Kata Beach is recognised in general for its crystal blue waters and beautiful coral reefs that reach through to Koh Pu. This beach attracts divers and surfers due to its mild breeze and wave.

Immerse in the last ray at “Krathing Cape”

Krathing Cape is one of the best sunset viewpoints of Phuket. Located in Karon Sub-district, Mueang Phuket District, the cape is characterised by a sail-shaped rock protruding towards the sea, the symbol of Krathing Cape that all visitors come to take a picture. Despite the difficult access, tourists are guaranteed with the unforgettable memory of a sunset on the rocky plain, the panoramic view, the lush meadow against the steep cliff, and the cool breeze. This is a perfect spot to wind down amidst the sound of shutters and the vibe of the crowd to warm your heart.

Visitors have two options to choose from. The first one starts from Ban Krathing Resort where you could walk along the wall of the resort, the beach, and the rocky pathway for about 800 metres (entry fee applies). Another route requires you to park your vehicle at Pha Hin Dam parking lot and take a four-wheel truck to the walkway. Take a 20-minute stroll or about 300 metres (tour guide vehicle service charges apply).

Don’t forget to check in at the landmark of “Phrom Thep Cape”

Phrom Thep Cape is on the southernmost of Phuket, 2 kilometres from Rawai Beach. It is one of the most beautiful sunset spots on the island. It is the reference sunset time of Thailand. Without dropping in on Laem Phrom Thep, it is almost considered that one has not truly been to Phuket because the spectacular view of the Andaman Sea from this viewpoint is a highlight that must be stored in one’s memory. The golden light and dark sky in the evening is something you cannot miss.
