Mai Khao Beach
Mai Khao Beach is the longest beach on Phuket, around nine kilometers long and is part of the Nai Yang National Park. It runs all the way to Sarasin Bridge, the bridge connecting Phuket Island to the mainland.
Besides the JW Marriott Phuket, Mai Khao has barely any development on it.The whole vibe at Mai Khao Beach is totally laid back. The further south you go down the beach, the more secluded you will find yourself.
Mai Khao Beach is well known by local expats for the annual Turtle Release Ceremony, where locally bread leatherbacks are released into the wild.
