Get in a little beach time all to yourself at Mai Khao Beach, an 11 km (7 mi) stretch of soft golden sand that is deserted more often than not. Still relatively undeveloped and part of a national park, the beach remains something of a hidden gem. The peaceful atmosphere here is refreshingly lacking in pushy vendors and powerboats. Be wary when swimming, however, as there is a drop off into the sea a short distance from the shore. The waves are strong and powerful, so only strong adult swimmers should venture into the waters. With our international travel planner, Mai Khao attractions like Mai Khao Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Mai Khao Beach or “White wood beach” This beach is very interesting as it locates very close to the runway. You can lay on the beach to see the bottom of the airplane while landing at Phuket airport. You can park at Nai yang beach and walk to Plane spotting point at Mai Khao beach. It takes only 15min walk on the beach.
We were here with my family and my beloved bf! We took a lot of pictures and enjoyed the good view. Just be careful where to swim okay? Make sure you swim in an area where you’re allowed to swim.
