Nai Yang Beach top beaches in phuket best beaches in phuket best beach in phuket for couples
Nai Yang Beach is one of the most famous locations in Thailand for kitesurfing, kayaking, and surfing.

Nai Yang Beach is one of the most famous locations in Thailand for kitesurfing, kayaking, and surfing. Unlike surfers who only use the power of waves, kitesurfing also depends on the wind to push the kite and take you surfing on the water. However, to participate in it, you also need a little courage and calm, because sometimes the kite will take you soaring into the air and drop down unexpectedly.

Along with the kiteboard, the calm water here also makes it a great place for paddle surfing. A big plus is that there is no water motorbike and very few boats so you enjoy the quiet space. And when you are tired, just float or lie lazily on the beach to enjoy the afternoon in the breeze.
