Layan & Nai Thon beaches are remote and mountainous - and quite beautiful
This northwest stretch of Phuket, where the road winds up over scenic headlands and hidden bays, is especially beautiful. And it harbours beautiful hideaway beaches and three of the most romantic resorts on Phuket. Anyone enjoying the complete tranquillity of these dream beach resorts will never think Phuket is overdeveloped.
The southern-most Trisara is considered by many to be the best resort in Phuket. Set in a forested hillside with lush tropical gardens all round, each luxury pool villa here enjoys a magnificent sunset view over the Andaman Sea. There is a small private beach below. In high season a floating jetty gives boating access. Our photos show the luxury of this dream spa resort.
Further north the road gives tiny glimpses of a perfect tropical beach. Andaman White Beach Resort hugs the entirety of it.
The road then passes Nai Thon, another of Phuket's outstanding beaches whose beauty, and potential as a tropical resort paradise, has been destroyed by the main road being built right up to the sand.
At the bottom of Nai Yang Beach hides another hidden gem of a beach resort, the Marriott. It too has a wide beachfront and rooms and villas in lush tropical gardens. Guests can stroll through a forest of huge casuarinas trees to Nai Yang's active beach centre. The trees give cover to a festive food, drink and Asian massage park where vendors in make-shift shacks serve Thai cuisine, seafood and cold beer to visitors with their feet in the sand.
