Mai Khao Beach

Discover the island destination of your dreams here in Phuket

Mai Khao Beach

Phuket’s longest beach, stretching 10 kilometres along the island’s northern tip, Mai Khao offers seclusion with minimal commercial activity. The beach is protected as part of Sirinath National Park and visitors can stroll along it for miles undisturbed. From November to February, sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach. Come April, visitors can watch baby turtles being released into the sea – part of conservation efforts to help endangered species. The sand of Mai Khao Beach – the name of which translates as “white wood” – is possibly the coarsest of any on Phuket, but is also practically deserted a lot of the time, making it possible to walk for kilometres without seeing a single other person. A short distance out into the water, there is a sharp drop off into the Andaman Sea.

1st Time in Phuket?


Phuket is home to some of the most enchanting seascapes on the planet. Thailand’s
largest island, surrounded by some 39 smaller isles, Phuket lies in the Andaman Sea
off the west coast, measuring 49 kilometres north to south, and 21 kilometres across.
Sandy beaches lining the island range from powder white to honey gold. The clear
waters of the Andaman Sea display all shades aquamarine, depending on light and
time of day. These alone make an unforgettable holiday, but there is more to discover
about Phuket beyond its fabled beaches…
