Located at the extreme south of Phuket in a small bay, Nai Harn beach only has only one hotel complex which actually is the first luxury hotel of the island, The Royal Phuket Yacht Club. Nai Harn beach is unique, tranquil and charmful, even if it attracts many visitors and yachts during high season.
The monastic complex Samnak Song Nai Harn is located between the beach and the lagoon, and prevents excessive developments from this small village. On the beach you will find a few small restaurants serving mainly Thai food but also a few Western dishes. The Royal Phuket Yacht Club also has its own restaurant but prices are relatively high.
During raining season, the sea in Nai Harn can be very dangerous with a strong current and big waves attracting a few surfers. Always remember to check the color of the flags or ask advices to the watch guards on the beach.
Not many visitors know it, but the road going to the Royal Phuket Yacht Club continues to the beautiful Ao Sane beach. It is a small beach relatively untouched by tourism where only a small restaurant and guesthouse exists. Ao Sane beach is idyllic for snorkeling due to the multitude of coral reefs and fishes.
At the other edge of Nai Harn beach, you will find the Yanoi beach, which is the ideal place for relaxing. Some guards may ask to pay an entry fee that includes a sun lounge and a cocktail.
