Nai Thon Noi Beach is a small west-facing beach about 80 meters (87 yards) long and located just south of its larger sister beach, Nai Thon Beach. Noi means small in Thai language. This tiny beach is located on the west side of Phuket Island, just 9 km (5.6 miles) south of the Phuket International Airport (HKT).
Nai Thon Noi Beach is set in a very small and sandy cove surrounded by rocks. While there are a few scattered rocks on the beach on the southern end of the beach, for the most part the beach has thick sand and is fine for laying out and walking around.
There are no real activities at this beach, it is more for visitors wishing to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing day away from the noise and closeness of crowds found elsewhere. There are never too many people at Nai Thon Noi Beach, it’s an ideal hideaway to seek out when you’re not in the mood to deal with the stresses of life.
Because the beach is surrounded by rocky shores, this is an ideal spot for snorkeling! Make sure to bring your snorkel, mask and fins if you’re ready for some uncrowded snorkeling along the coast. Go north and there is about 600 meters (656 yards) of rocky coast – probably without anyone else snorkeling. Head south, away from Nai Thon’s larger beach, and you’ll have about 150 meters (164 yards) of rocks to explore. Going to the north or south, you’ll surely be alone in exploring the underwater world of the Andaman Sea in this prime spot.
