Nai Harn Bay, Phuket
Nai Harn Bay is located on the southern tip of the island of Phuket, Thailand's largest island located in Southern Thailand. Situated on the west-facing Andaman sea coastline, Phuket is one of Thailand's most popular holiday destinations, with beautiful beaches, coves and bays.
A quiet little spot at the southern end of Phuket, Nai Harn is one of the island's most beautiful locations. It is not as developed as other southern coast beaches due in part to the Samnak Song Nai Han monastic center in the middle of the beach. It is great for swimming from November to April, however care should be take in the low season (May-October) when there can be strong undertows on occasion.
Just north of Nai Harn, along the coast, is Nui Beach, small, secluded and difficult to access. Further along is Ya Nui, a sandy cove that attracts snorkelers and divers. Another out-of-the way spot nearby is the tiny beach of Ao Sane, a great spot for snorkeling.
