Ya Nui Beach lies between Promthep Cape and Windmill Viewpoint, 2 of Phuket‘s most popular viewpoints. It’s a charming little cove offering good snorkelling, kayaking, and fishing. The sand is soft and comfortable, with plenty of shells for kids to collect.
The neighbouring island of Koh Man is around 700 metres out in the sea. When the weather is calm, it’s possible to paddle out to check out corals or even to visit Nai Harn. Local fishermen climb the rocky promontory to cast off or simply brave the waves with casting nets during overcast days.
How to get there: There are 3 routes to Ya Nui Beach in Phuket. From Nai Harn, you can drive south over a hill, passing Windmill Viewpoint and continuing down to the beach. From inland, there’s a road leading from Rawai – keep going straight when the main Rawai-Promthep road swings left and continue until you reach Ya Nui Beach. Alternatively, drive down the northern side of Promthep and you’ll soon find yourself in Ya Nui.
