Nai Thorn Beach is one of the most romantic and secluded destinations in Phuket.
The beach itself is only rather small, however with it’s white sand and crystal clear waters it’s simply stunning.
I would have to say that Nai Thorn is among one of the cleanest beaches in Phuket and the perfect setting for a private beach wedding or romantic getaway in Phuket.
This small and secluded beach was used as a backdrop for the movies; "The Beach and The Quest".
Nai Thorn Beach is located just to the north of Banana Beach one of the best hidden beaches in Phuket, and just south of Nai Thon Beach on the south west coast of Phuket.
Nai Thorn is also known as Nai Thon Noi, and as the name suggests is somewhat smaller then the neighboring Nai Thon beach just to the north.
During the low season this beach along with many of Phuket’s west coast beaches can be at times too dangerous to go swimming, so for your own safety if you see a red flag on the beach don’t go in the water.
All beaches in Phuket are public beaches, and this one is no exception, however the beachfront is occupied by the Andaman White Beach Resort.
