“Beautiful water along a beautiful setting and soft sand.”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

We loved floating on a board, and riding some waves! The beach is lined with trees so shade is available without the need for an umbrella. There is a bit of undertow but not too bad. I would watch small children carefully. Good waves that can be strong. Once you get past the wave break floating on a board is amazing. No bugs, seaweed, clean as can be. A great beach to visit!

Nice beach to visit, especially if you want to get away from the crowded beaches of southern Phuket.

“Calm & unspoilt”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

The beach has white sand and it is very clean. You will hardly find any tourists other than occassional guests from the nearby luxury resorts.

“The best beach in Phuket”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

No touts pushing their wares and services on this protected beach. Just white sand and calm waters. Local and resort eateries are in abundance and within walking distance. The Marriot Vacation Club and Anantara are great resorts because of this great stretch of beach.

“Great for walking”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Stayed at the Marriott. This beach is great for walking. However, the sea can be rough. Steep walk down to the beach which helped save the Marriott when a tidal wave hit eight years ago with much devistation and loss of life in the area. Lovely to look at, just mind the warning flags. They are there for a reason. Two men had their legs broken in the waves the week we were there. Enjoy the walks, the sound of crashing waves and mind your safety...
