Looking for a different beach.

Recommended Posts

Hi have been to Phuket a few times and looking for a different beach to stay at next time. As usual will stay a couple of nights in Phuket town (like it very much).

Like quiet beaches for family holiday with wife and kids 10 and 12.

Have previously stayed at Kamala, Surin, Cape Panwa, Nai Harn and Ya nui. Liked Ni Harn but too many Russians.

any help? thanks

A very nice trip. Take the ferry/ boat to Ko Phi Phi, stay some days there, then take the ferry to Ko Lanta and you'll find the most beautiful beaches.

Can't remember the name, but there is a beach on the south side of the Panwa peninsula. It's where the Phuket Yacht Club (oldest in Phuket) is based. Safe swimming all year round and hardly any people, Just down the road from Phuket Town.

I'm sure one of the Phuket forum regulars will know the name. Much better view than the West coast, too.

Ao Yon Beach? There's a reason that there's not many people at that beach.

You'd be better off heading North when you come out of the airport and go to Khao Lak, lots of places to stay and really nice, quiet beaches.

Kata is nice, Russians are everywhere, might be difficult if not impossible to find a beach without them, good luck!

Naithon Beach.  10 minute drive from the airport, only one large hotel (Pullman), a couple of smaller condo developments.  Beach is normally pretty quiet.  Hotel gets a lot of Chinese package tourists but they all seem to disappear on tours during the day.  The few beachgoers seem to be Chinese and Russians.

Seems there are two Ao Yon beaches.

Yes, I know - I have written about them too on my website; none of them resemble a beautiful tropical beach. Maybe the OP should consider getting off Phuket, as some have suggested; Koh Lanta and Khao Lak are nice, family friendly places; both with several beaches to choose from. From Khao Lak you can go on a tour to Khao Sok National Park.
