This beach is polluted. There are plastic bottles / plastic bags / sigarette buds everywhere and a lot of trash washes up by the tides. It was really disheartening to see this (and people were adding to it by leaving their trash on the beach)....More

This area of Phuket was more family friendly for us than Patong. We were able to relex on the beach without being over crowded.

Definitely one of the more quiet beach optios in Phuket. Plenty of restaurants and markets as well as a children's play area with swings and slides. Many salons offering Thai massage and mani-pedis. Parasailing available from the beach.

Usually going early - by 8am. The operation does depend on wind conditions on the day.
