Ranked among Phuket’s top beach hubs, Mai Khao Beach is a culture and recreational hotspot like no other. Here are some of the top things to do during a visit to the scenic beach hotspot.
Pay Homage to Wat Mai Khao
As one of the most iconic religious highlights in the area, no visit to Mai Khao Beach would be complete without a stopover at Wat Mai Khao. This charming and tranquil place of worship is sparse and austere but a spiritual epicentre in Phuket where abbot Lung Poh Dang and his disciples practice meditation and guide the residents of the beach town in their daily struggles.
Spend an Afternoon at IWP International Wake Park
Open from 9 am to 9 pm, the IWP International Wake Park is a popular water sports Mecca for the masses in Phuket. Those with an interest in learning or enjoying a wakeboarding session in what has now been ranked among the top wake parks on the planet will find that the venue affords a safe space for enjoying a day full of fun.
Visit the Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation
Nature lovers and conservationists based at Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Suites & Villas or any one of the other resorts in Phuket should also stop by the Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation. As an institution that has done much to preserve the sea turtle population of the area from the claws of extinction, the venue not only deserves your patronage but also donations to continue its conservation work.
Unwind at Sirinat National Park
With more than 10 miles of pristine coastlines at one’s disposal, a tour of Sirinat National Park offers visitors the chance to enjoy not only Mai Khao Beach but also Nai Yang Beach.
