Nai Harn Beach is the southernmost strip of sand in Phuket, and locals love it just as much as visitors. Picture gleaming white sands bordered by grassy knolls and rolling cerulean waves, and you'll start to be able to imagine the beauty of this seemingly remote spot. The beach also gets high marks for its authentic collection of nearby restaurants. 

While experiencing all of the Nai Harn beauty, visitors recommend keeping your ear out for the lifeguards' warnings. They also suggest only swimming within the flagged areas, since Nai Harn is no stranger to strong, dangerous riptides – especially during monsoon season (May to October). 

You'll find Nai Harn Beach about 11 miles southwest of Phuket Town. The easiest way to reach it is by tuk-tuk, taxi or motorcycle. You'll find public restrooms located on the north end of the beach, along with a collection of small shops, where you can rent beach umbrellas. There are also a handful of restaurants within walking distance. The beach is free to visit and accessible 24/7.
