Nui beach is a picture-perfect little beach nestled between large forest-covered hills in the southwest corner of Phuket, near Cape Promthep. The beach is accessible by a dirt road leading off Highway 4233, but it does become difficult to drive and you’re advised to walk or take the taxi down to the beach. As the rainy season wears on in September to November, the roads are destroyed here. There are two beach clubs on this small beach if you believe Google Maps. We think it’s the same one. The number of people varies, but it seems to be increasing with time as Phuket welcomes millions of visitors each year.
In 2015, Thailand’s military destroyed the beach club buildings here because they were charging a 350 THB fee for entering the beach and had no public beach access. The staff of the old club were allegedly reported numerous times for threatening visitors for not paying the fee. Currently the beach is open, and no fee is being charged. That might change as the military relinquishes their hold on the country with elections coming in the near future.
There is no Beach club in Nui Beach.
There are no accommodations right at Nui Beach, but you can stay close by in one of the following resorts.
