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.

This beach is by far quieter than the noisy crowded beaches in Patong and Karon. It's clean and the warm water is lovely although gets very deep very quickly. The beach itself is beautiful to look at. I stayed at the Centara grand west sands and villas right on the beach and adjacent to the airport. Watching the planes land was quite a novelty. Loved it

I love Mai Khao Beach because it locates far from the crowded Padong or other popular areas in Phuket, it is somehow quiet and clean.

I stayed in one resort near Mai Khao and I will never forget the day I sat on the beach and watched the sunset, it was paradise.

The beach itself is stunning to look at. Near the resorts though, there is too much rubbish. The water also gets very deep quite quickly...not great for small kids. Also there were some jellyfish that stung us in the water. The southern end is great for plane spotting!
