As Phuket's northernmost beach, Mai Khao is a quiet spot with only a few accommodation options. You'll find more variety in Nai Yang and Naithon, though none of these northern beaches come close to the tourism frenzy found further down the coast.
We have 13 places to stay in and around Naithon to Mai Khao.
This hiccup of a beach sits between Mai Khao to the north and Naithon beach to the south. A lot of development has taken place recently and a beach road with the usual tourist facilities has sprung up. The northern part of the beach turns to mangrove forests and is where you’ll find Sirinath Park headquarters.
Mai Khao runs from near the Sarasin Bridge at Phuket’s northern-most point down to the Phuket International Airport. Mai Khao is mostly deserted and one of the most beautiful of the yellow-sand beaches on the Andaman coast. There are only two places to stay here. One is likely way outside your budget but the other just might be the answer to your prayers.
