A hidden treasure awaits discovery on the northwest coast of Phuket, Thailand—Mai Khao Beach. This expansive shoreline is the longest beach on the island and provides a peaceful contrast to the vibrant atmosphere of Phuket’s more popular tourist destinations.
Unlike its more crowded counterparts, Mai Khao Beach remains largely untouched, providing an oasis of tranquillity. The expansive shoreline invites long, leisurely walks, where the only footprints you’ll find are your own.
The stunning sunsets at Mai Khao are well-known phenomena. When the sun goes down behind the Andaman Sea, the sky turns into a beautiful display of warm colours, filling the atmosphere with a magical feeling. A stay at one of the many Phuket beach resorts the likes of Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Suites makes for the perfect place to relax with family and friends or to take a moment for peaceful contemplation.
Sirinat National Park is located in the northern part of the beach, which is a nesting ground for sea turtles. With a bit of luck, visitors can witness these peaceful creatures returning to the sea, reminding us of the region’s dedication to preserving the natural environment.
