Tucked away on Phuket’s north-western side, Mai Khao Beach offers an idyllic seaside escape where you can soak up the sun, chill-out by the ocean and enjoy some adventures too.
Planning Your Trip
The beach is in fact, part of the Sirinat National Park and can be found within easy reach of the Phuket International Airport. Be it a resort or a beach club in Phuket, you will find several properties along this 11 km long white sand shoreline which is the largest beach on the island too.
Things to Do
Windsurfing, big game fishing and stand-up paddleboarding are amongst the water sports you can try here, while diving in the Andaman Sea offers some thrilling underwater exploration. Of course, if you’re looking to chill out, drink with friends or dance the night away, beachside clubs like M Beach Club Phuket can be found in Mai Khao too!
Believe it or not, this is an activity that is quite popular on the southern part of the beach! This is because the Phuket International Airport is relatively close by meaning you get an ideal vantage point from Mai Khao Beach of planes coming in which makes for some amazing photo opportunities.
Water Park Fun
Mai Khao Beach is also within easy reach of the Splash Jungle Water Park in Phuket which offers lots of thrills for the whole family. This popular water park features an array of exciting rides and water slides as well as attractions like a lazy river, wave pool and family raft ride.
