Nakalay Beach Phuket is a south-southwest facing beach about half-a-kilometer long located about 4 kilometers north of crowded Patong Beach, and around 30 km from the Phuket International Airport (HKT) in the north. There is a long boat pier jutting into the shallow water to allow boats to drop passengers on a dry place. This is another one of those Phuket beaches which is supposed to be freely accessed, but isn’t. The Thavorn Beach Village Hotel and Nakalay Palm Phuket hotels own all the land around the beach and there is no public thoroughfare to allow people to access the beach directly without going through their hotel grounds.
As you can see in our video, Nakalay Beach Phuket is long, but it is filled with rocks and sharp shells, dangerous for feet. It is interesting to walk through the partially submerged rocks at low tide to see what sorts of sea life you can find there and in the tide pools on the west side of the beach. Some people snorkel when the tide comes in, but really, there are many other fantastic snorkeling spots on Phuket – go see some of them instead and give this a pass.
Crocodile Bar looks like a bar – restaurant – beach club. Some info below.
