Mai Khao Beach is on the northwest coast of Phuket. This 11-km-long straight beach is still blessedly undeveloped as it's part of the Sirinat National Park. The only significant landmarks along the beach are the JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Phuket International Airport near Nai Yang Beach.
The sand of Mai Khao Beach is possibly the coarsest of any on Phuket, but it's also practically deserted a lot of the time, making it possible to walk for kilometers without another soul in sight. A short distance out into the water, there's a sharp drop off into the Andaman Sea, so take care when you're going for a cooling dip.
The famous picture underneath a landing airplane can be taken in Maikhao beach for those Instagram users. Another cool feature about Mai Khao is of course its fantastic potential. There is a new International Airport project is on the horizon for Phuket and it will be located just after Sarasin Bridge which connects the island to the mainland. Therefore Mai Khao will be the closest town to the new airport and the first town that every single passanges will pass by when they arrive in Phuket.
