In the shadow of two of Phuket’s loveliest viewpoints (Phromthep Cape and the windmill viewpoint), lies Ya Nui. It is an alluring little cove featuring kayaking, where you can paddle out to explore the coral, great snorkeling, and even fishing. The sand is amazingly soft and perfect for strolling around collecting shells or just basking in the shade. It is rare to find a secluded beach like Ya Nui in Phuket, and one is sure to be amazed by the peaceful atmosphere of this small and well-hidden gem. However, peak season is when Ya Nui is most visited by tourists, and vendors selling food and souvenirs along with restaurants and other shops contribute to the lively atmosphere of the beach. Tourists are spoilt for choice with the variety of tropical food and drinks sold at the eateries.
There are many fun activities to be carried out on Ya Nui catering to the adventurous ones or even those who only seek to relax on the beach. The northern part of the Ya Nui is known to be the best spot for a great swim. Those who want to laze around the beach can choose to have a beach massage, which is sure to help loosen those tight knots in the muscles at a reasonable price. The more adventurous ones can hire a kayak to get to Koh Kaeo Ya, where snorkeling conditions are said to be more favorable. The water is relatively clear and calm, where you will be astounded by the beauty of the seabed with an abundance of tropical fish and corals.
