Guide to Naithon Beach, Phuket
If you’re spending some time at Naithon Beach in Phuket, you’re probably wondering what there is to do there and how far away it is from the hustle and bustle of the very tourist friendly island.
Where is Naithon Beach?
Naithon Beach is located just 15 minutes from Phuket Airport, making it the perfect stop before or after a long haul flight.
For some reason, Naithon Beach hasn’t caught the eye of resort developers which makes it a perfect spot if you’re after some piece and quiet.
Getting to Naithon Beach
The drive to Naithon Beach is actually quite beautiful. From the south, the roads become quite narrow and you drive a windy road through jungle – it’s really quite beautiful. From the north you drive through a little village before reaching a green valley before arriving at the beach.
What to do at Naithon Beach
The Beach: Relax at the beach and enjoy a swim in the beautiful water. The great thing about the beach is that there is plenty of shade provided by the tree lined street, meaning you don’t need to hire or take an umbrella.
Rocky Coves: Accessible only by long tail boat, this would be something worth exploring if you have the time. This can be arranged at the dive shop on the main road.
Scuba Diving: Also available to book through the dive shop.
Massage: I found the best massages on the island to be at Naithon Beach! They do get super busy at peak times (normally around 7pm) so either book a time with them prior to arriving, or go a little earlier or later to get a spot.
