Information about Mai Khao Beach

Information about Mai Khao BeachThe name ‘Mai Khao’ means white wood in English but it’s merely a joke so do not expect any white tree! The sand on the beaches fulfills the name as it is coarse and white. Its isolated beaches will allow you to walk for miles without encountering anyone!

The island and the beach lie to the northwest coast of Phuket and stretches over 11km. the undeveloped nature of the region is a blessing as it has helped in housing the Sirinat National Park. The only other major constructions around are the JW Marriot Phuket Resort and the Phuket International Airport which is on the neighboring Nai Yang beach.

The island drops sharply to the Andaman Sea, which makes it dangerous for swimming during the monsoon months of May to November.

Also, accommodation is available in the nearby Phuket Airport Hotel, bungalow accommodation on the beach and the Indigo Pearl Hotel situated in the lush greenery of the hills on the nearby Nai Yang beach.

Tourist Attractions

Tourist AttractionsMai Khao has a National Park status and its isolation makes it the perfect spot for camping. The north side of the beach is ideal for surfing, as the waters of the Phang Nga Bay meets the waves of the Andaman Sea. Fishing and hiking are also good tourist activities.

Mai Khao is famous as the place where the endangered species of giant leatherback turtles lay their eggs. It is a nesting ground for them and you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of these turtles at the nesting time. In April, there is a national water festival held when the young ones of the turtles hatch and the festival is called Songkran. You can also spot a species of mole crab here, known as chakkachan talay or sea cicada. It is considered a culinary delicacy and is collected by the locals.

Mai Khao Beach is one of those quiet getaways when you can spend a weekend with your family, in peace.
