Literally meaning “White Wood” this 11-kilometer long beach is maybe one of Phuket’s least developed and most remote stretch of beach. This is mainly because of it is part of the Sirinat National Park, a protected area where Green Turtles are known to make their nesting grounds. The only structures of importance are a couple of 5-star resorts and Phuket Airport with its recently opened new international terminal.
Mai Khao Beach
Because of a sharp drop-off a short distance into the sea, Mai Khao beach is notoriously dangerous for swimming especially during the rainy season. It is the kind of beach honeymooners or romantic souls might look for because of its lack of action and entertainment. Apart from the hotel-cuisine, there are very few dining options outside the resorts, but the ones you can find offer a very cheap alternative.
