Also known as the Airport Beach (Hat Sanambin), the beach is located at the northern end of Phuket Island. As Phukets longest beach, Hat Mai Khao is famous for its tranquil beach set in a relaxing ambience. Camping grounds are provided. The beach is not recommended for swimming as it slopes steeply. Hat Mai Khao is home to wonderful creatures such as sea cicadas and turtles. In addition, it is an egg-lying ground for sea turtles.
The Beach can be reached by taking the Thepkasattri Road on to the Thao Thepkasattri Bridge, then taking a left turn at the directional sign pointing to Mai Khao Beach or follow the Thepkasattri Road that passes the Airport intersection. At the Sarasin Bridge, turn left and proceed for approximately 3.5 kilometers.
