Makam Beach (or Makham Bay) is just north of Heeowhat Beach. Unlike most of the beaches here, you can rent kayaks and paddleboards – so there is more to do here than at most of the beaches on Phuket’s east side. The sand under the water is mostly mud, and the tide goes out quite far, exposing muddy flats with crabs and shells. A couple of islands are visible from the beach, adding to the serenity of the place.
One caution to look out for here are the stingrays. These are flat with a barbed tail, that when stepped on, will lash you with the barbs and inject venom. It hurts a lot. To take care of a sting, use vinegar and heating packs to 40°C (104°F).
There are no beach clubs at Makam Beach

I’m curious, what is KKK? You say it is not permitted and I was just wondering what it is. Thanks.
FKK is an abbreviation that is found in several European languages, it originally stems from german and is short for “Frei Körper Kultur” (free body culture). It can be found on signs at beaches and lakes, telling the visitor that he is going to enter an area where it is common to swim and sunbathe nude.
