Ya Nui Beach
Ya Nui is tucked away at the foot of a hill on the steep road between Nai Harn and Promthep Cape. We cycled there ... or rather, some of us cycled. The rest of us found the hills too challenging and pushed our bikes uphill in the searing heat. Reaching Ya Nui provided blessed relief. It is a very quiet, pretty place, undeveloped except for a roadside restaurant. There is an outcrop of rock jutting into the sea which is fun to climb, and the views are spectacular. I imagine in the summer it must be possible to swim or cycle out to the nearby island. Ya Nui was annihilated during the 2004 Tsunami and there are several memorials to the victims on the rocks above the beach. We found a moving poem online which was written by one of the survivors. It gave us pause for thought as we enjoyed a drink in the shady bar.
