Nai Harn Beach - Phuket's most beautiful beach in a National Park
South of Kata Noi and north of Promthep Cape, Naiharn is not Phuket's longest beach, but it borders the most gorgeous lagoon on the island. The middle of the beach is dominated by the Samnak Song Nai Han monastery, which has obstructed excessive development and is the reason that the beach is generally less crowded than other spots on the southern part of the island. The water quality is best on the Island, crystal clear and clean.
A wide variety of water sports can be enjoyed, but swimmers should be alert for the red flag which warns of dangerous currents during the monsoon season from May to October. One can walk to nearby Promthep Cape to observe sunsets, which are often fiery and spectacular.
There is a variety of beach restaurants and bars right behind the beach, ideal for a relaxed lunch. Local Thai and Western dishes are available. Nai-Harn Beach still remains less commercial than the main beaches Patong, Kata and Karon and maintains his status to be the most popular beach amongst the local expat and Thai community.
