The longest and the quietest of all the beaches in Phuket, Mai Khao is a great option for people seeking some quality time to spend with themselves amongst beautiful scenery. This is the closest beach from Phuket International Airport and begins right where Nai Yang Beach ends. Part of a protected national park, the beach has mostly a deserted feel to it with fewer people and vendors. Nonetheless, you will be able to spot many luxury hotels like Sala Phuket, Renaissance Phuket and JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa, to mention a few.
The Mai Kao beach is a lesser developed part of the Sirinath National Park. With its name literally translating to white wood, this 11 km long stretch along the coast is perfect for a long and uninterrupted walk. Once a year, this beach hosts the Songkran festival, where you might be lucky enough to witness a baby turtle release.
The national park is home to many plants and wildlife including rare species of birds, lizards, snakes, fish and marine life. Nature lovers will surely admire the park. Kids will love playing here. The park has an entry fee of THB 200.
Located close to the Phuket International Airport, watching the planes landing is definitely something tourists look forward to when at the beach. Though one may have to walk a bit longer in the sun, watching these the planes cast their large shadow on the clear turquoise water is fantastic.
Situated next to the airport, this waterpark has a wide range of slides, tunnels, spinning funnels and pools with artificial waves which surely every family would enjoy. Though the entry fee is high, the experience will be worth it.
