Yanui Beach - Review
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
Exactly the sort of beach I was looking for in phuket. Quite small and a little out of the way so wasn't overly busy, also not overdeveloped with just a couple of roadside restaurants to choose from. The island forms a natural breakwater so it was safe to swim here when many other beaches were not (we visited in the rainy season). Plus plenty of rock pools and a small rocky outcrop to explore. Just a really nice place to relax for a few hours away from the bars and constant traffic of the main beaches.
This is by far the best place to snorkel. A shirt drive from Kata beach. You can buy snorkel equipment from a local shop just up the road. The beach is split into 2 parts. The one part is better for just swimming as there is a bit more sand. The other side has a lot of rocks and plenty of colorful fish. You can also hire a kayak from a local lady for 200Baht and take it out on the ocean. There is also 2 restaurants right behind the beach.
A beach with remarkable natural beauty featuring moderately soft white sand, warm turquoise water, and a unique rock formation. Unfortunately, rampant island development is felt here given the amount of filth and garbage washed ashore. At its worst, not unlikely to have a glass bottle launched into your face while swimming. Recommendation: bring sand tools and build a sand moat to strike balance between proximate sea views with safety and cleanliness. If venturing into the water, wear hockey equipment (or at least your scooter helmet) to absorb blows from errant debris.
A lovely beach near the jungle. Golden sand, crystal water, some small Thai restaurants nearby. Perfect location!
A really picturesque beach. The beach is quite remote and away from the hustle and bustle. The blue sea and splashing waves will soothe your mind.
