Nai Harn Beach Guide – Phuket


Phuket MapNai Harn is located in one of the most beautiful bays at the southern end of Phuket, and has a long stretch of sand with many small restaurants under the trees behind the beach. The middle of the beach is dominated by the Samnak Song Nai Han monastery, which has hindered excessive development and is the reason that the beach is generally less crowded than other spots on the southern end of Phuket. There aren’t many places to stay here but the beach is easy to get to from Kata and Karon.

The rocks along Royal Phuket Yacht Club is the best spot for snorkelling but much better snorkelling can be found at nearby Ao Sane Beach. To access Ao Sane take the dirt road that starts at the Yacht Club’s car park.

Nai Harn is good for swimming from November to April, however care should be take in the monsoon season (May-October) when there can be strong undertows on occasion. Watch for the warning flags and use some common sense. This is probably the best spot for surfing in Phuket although few surfers make it this far south.

The local restaurants just above the beach make a great place to relax and enjoy the stunning sunsets, which are often fiery and spectacular.
