Ao Yon Beach and Bay

There are two small beaches in this bay south of Cape Panwa on the east coast of Phuket, separated by rocky headlands. It is about 10 kms from town and easily accessible by car and motorcycle. The road from Ban Bo Rare which takes you to Ao Yon is attractive and full of shady trees. The bay is tranquil, the sea is very blue, and the sunset here is also magnificent. Tourists like to relax by sitting under the coconut palms watching waves twinkling in the sunlight.

Travelling to Ao Yon Bay, there are two routes to this beach. From town, follow the road to Panwa Beach. There is a small soi to take you to Ao Yon pass Bor Rae Village. This road offers a nice scenery of beaches and a view point. The other route to Ao Yon is from Panwa Beach and Makam Bay. Follow the Ao Yon Khao Khad Road to the beach. This route is shorter than the other one.

Thailand! A view of Rawai beach as never seen before!

Paradise beach bar and restaurant is located Rawai Phuket Thailand.

It is not that which is the focus of this video though, more a point where I started a beautiful walk along what at first appeared to be a very small part of rawai Beach, but as the tide went out during the morning gave me access to other more secluded parts of the beach, which curves round towards the cape of Panwa.
Sometimes time is better spent waiting for better moments to present themselves to you.

Thailand! Chalong Bay Extended Beach

Thailand! Chalong Bay Extended Beach

Just south of Chalong, there is a long stretch of Chalong bay called, Friendship beach, also known as Mittrapap beach. The beach is not a great place for swimming as it becomes muddy at low tide. However, the view of the bay is delightful for walking and getting away from the hustle and bustle of Life.

You get some lovely views across Chalong Bay to some of the offshore islands such as Koh Lone, Koh Bon and Koh Racha Yai, and there are hundreds of boats in the bay – everything from dive boats to catamarans to speedboats and a couple of huge sunset cruise boats.

Certainly somewhere I love going to relax and practice photography.

Naiharn Beach - Phuket

Nai Harn beach is located on the southernmost tip of Phuket, to the west of Promthep Cape facing the Andaman Sea. This is one of the best and most beautiful beaches on the southern coast.

The actual area is an open front beach but surrounded by hillside on both sides.The surface of the beach under the shallow waters is pure soft sand and feels luscious to walk on. From around 11 am – 5 pm, the water can become very warm due to the sun shining on it.

It is extremely popular with the locals, but not so much commercialised with tourists. The sea is absolutely fantastic to swim in between November and April. In the low season, it can still be nice, but the sea is much more unpredictable.

Nai Harn has some great surf, and lovely clear waters to swim in. There are no rocks on the bay, it’s pure sand that so it makes it perfect for a beautiful swim. The rip currents can get very strong at times depending on the time of day and sea behaviour. Because of this there are always life guards.

A lovely atmosphere, great for families, children, and in general people who appreciate a beautiful beach. Another part of the beach to the eastern side is a very shallow pool set about 50 metres from the actual sea. There is a stream of water that runs from this small pool to the sea. The pool is only knee deep, and perfect for small children to swim in and play. It has no current as it is not the actual sea itself, but joins on to it.

In either high season or low season, the beach never seems overcrowded, as you can see from my photos.

Laem Ka Noi Beach

The beach part of Laem Ka Noi is minuscule, so tiny that one hesitates to call it a beach. The focus of Laem Ka Noi is its restaurant which attracts many Thai people on weekends with good seafood and local delicacies at fair rates.

On my very recent visit it was shared by some locals fishing, and gave a stunning view of Chalong Bay and the elephant shaped Island of Koh Lone is also known as Koh Lohn or Lon Island, and is mainly populated by friendly Muslim communities that make a living from fishing, rubber tree plantations and coconut planting.

Laem Ka Noi, a place to find your inner peace............even if it is nly for a few hours.
