About Yanui Beach, Phuket

Though tiny, this beach can be quite busy during high season, and with good reason. The 300 hundred meters of soft sand, the bright blue waters and the shady trees all combine to create one of the cutest beaches on the island. The northern section is the best for swimming and snorkelling (you can rent snorkelling gear at the beach). There are usually vendors selling fruits and clothes. You’ll also find a raggae bar and a diving center. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can rent a kayak and take it out into the sea, to the Koh Keyao Noi Island 700 meters away.

Yanui Beach, Phuket Reviews

  • One of my favorite beaches in Phuket for the atmosphere it has. Its a very small tropical beach where you can relax and do good snorkeling too. Be aware of the tides however because usually at late afternoon there is low tide and you cannot enjoy the beach anymore.

  • Adequate parking area beside main road. Fine sand, calm water with minimal wave during morning and evening time (end Dec). Big boulder formation in centre of beach dividing beach into two nice sized spots.Healthy marine life thriving and swimming among rocks beside the beach such as fish, crabs and eels. Will definately visit again soon.....with snorkelling gear.

  • Secluded and away from the hoards of tourists that can overrun the area. Well worth the 5 minute drive over the cape. Stunning views and very basic and rustic restaurants across the road. Good food.

  • The best for snorkeling. We rent a kayak and we went to the small island in front of this beach. We did snorkeling there and was better then bamboo island. The water is extremely but in this country is normal I guess.

  • Rather small beach and lots of rocks in the water, makes it a little bit hard to enjoy a relaxing walk in the water. But it's much quieter than the other nearby beaches, so if you are not planning to go into the water, it's a great beach. Toilet is at the restaurant opposite. They seem quite nice to let people use their toilet, just be polite and do not dirty the toilet I guess.
