Nai Harn is set midway between the West and East coasts of Phuket and away from main tourist areas that makes it popular among expats and locals.
From May to October, in the rainy season, it offers good waves for surfing. If you are not a surfer, you can still have some fun and ride the waves on a boogie board.
There are many Thai restaurants located along the beach. Behind the beach, there is an inland lake that connects with the sea by a small stream. Tides create shallow sandy pools along the stream making it popular with families with young children. The lake is surrounded by a fence and a sidewalk that is perfect for jogging. Walk over the bridge to the island at the center to rent paddle boats.
