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. 

How To reach Yanui Beach by Public Transport

  • By Car
  • Take a bus, tuk-tuk or taxi to Nai Harn.
  • Descend down the north side of Phrom Thep.

Yanui Beach, Phuket Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very nice small beach with nice white sand clean water and almost no big waves. Very good place for snorkeling and swimming due to calm water. There is also nice restaurant with good food and good prices right across the road.

  • Sth different then most of the beaches on the island. Good place for snorkeling. Not much sand in the see, many stones.

  • Directly across the road from this beach is a restaurant not labeled on the map. Out of all the places I ate in Phuket this place was my favorite all the meals were amazing.

  • I was going around the western cost of Phuket by scooter and just happened to run into this beach. The beach was very secluded and clean, and would have loved to spend some time here if I had my swimwear and a blanket! Just ended up walking around the beach barefoot, and it was small but beautiful compared to Kata or Karon beach.

  • The 2 quietest beaches in Phuket: Nai Harn and Yanai beach. Some area has bench chairs and umbrella for rent ($5 for a pair, the whole day). There are some great “make shift” restaurants that offer free shower rooms to earn business along with small shops and massage places. The spot is mostly for locals and expat residents. The view is great, the water is nice and small waves don’t have much undertow - great to relax, kids and snorkeling. Most of all, the locals take care of the area - no broken glasses or trash in the sand!
