Mai Khao Beach is an almost straight stretch of coastline situated on the northwestern side of Phuket. It's one heck of a long sandy beach with a continuous line of Casuarina trees running along just about the entire length of it's shore. In the past giant leather-back turtles would come ashore to lay their eggs on the beach but that doesn't happen anymore due to egg poaching, resort development and pollution. And just like there are no more turtles, there will be times when you could have the beach all to yourselves. Just be aware that the beach is not always in pristine condition as some people tend to leave their rubbish lying around instead of taking all their crap back with them when they leave. And between the months of May and November swimming is not such a good idea as the shore tends to drop of into the Andaman Sea rather suddenly.
