Nai Thon Beach, Phuket

What is commonly known as "Nai Thon Beach" is actually four small beaches separated by several small headlands.  The southernmost beach is called HinKuay, the next one heading north is sometimes called "Nai Torn" (or Nai Thorn) Beach, the next one is called Nai Thon Noi (little Nai Thon), and the main beach along Nai Thon Village is Nai Thon beach.  Confused yet?  Transliteration is rarely 100% perfect, so stay flexible when looking for places here.

Nai Thon Beach is one of the most pleasant beaches on the island and the sand is so soft and powdery that it actually squeaks when you walk on it.  Definitely a tourist area compared to the beaches to the north - but still very uncrowded compared to the major tourist zones of Phuket.

Several small restaurants can be found up and down the beach - and the far south of the main beach is cove-like with a full-size restaurant hidden away in the trees.

The Coconut Tree Restaurant - right in the center of the beach - has an excellent menu with last year's prices.  Try the Masaman Gai (Masaman Chicken Curry).

Snorkeling is good around the headlands on the north and south ends of the beach here.  Bring your gear as rental gear is not always of the best quality.
