This beach is not so famous like Nai Harn, it is smallest but it has a lot of corals and fish. This peculiarity is limit your time on the beach, it is better to come when it backwater, because when it low tide the entrance to the water is rocky, may not be very comfortable.
The cozy beach is a little more than 100 meters long. At the peak of the season on the beach is quite crowded, but this does not prevent you from enjoying snorkelling and picturesque surroundings. Near the beach, in the shade of trees, you can hide from the hot sun, rent a sunbed, an umbrella from the sun or drink a cool drink.
To know the time of backwater and low tide you can look at the table on the site Phuket Newspaper. On the left side with date above you can see a clock. Numbers in the table means: 1- low water. Low then 1 happens very rarely when full moon. Low tide usually takes 3-4 hours, the rest of the time the water level is high.
