Mai Khao Beach is located on the northwest coast of Phuket right next to the Phuket International Airport. The beach with its 11-km-long coast line is the part of the Sirinat National Park.
The sand of Mai Khao Beach is not that white as most of travellers expect it to be. As the beach is deserted a lot of the time, it is possible to walk for kilometres almost all alone. Be careful as in a short distance out into the water, there’s a sharp drop off into the Andaman Sea. In the off-season the waves reaches almost 2.5m making it difficult and impossible to swim. Spend your time there to enjoy the stunning sunset.
