Nai Han Beach
of Kata Noi and north of Phrom Thep cape, Nai Han 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.
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 Phrom Thep cape to observe sunsets which
are often fiery and spectacular.
The few available
accommodations range from the sumptuous and extremely expensive
on the western end of the lagoon, to more modest places, most
of which are a little remote from the beach itself.
