Yanui Beach is just another one of the beautiful and often overlooked beaches on Phuket Island. Between Nai Harn Beach and Promthep Cape is this tiny and so lovely little beach about 175 meters (191 yards) in length and around 15 meters (16 yards) wide on average. It goes virtually unnoticed because tourists are so focused on finding Promthep Cape, that they skip right by. Yanui Beach is a local’s favorite, and you’ll find as many Thais here as you will foreigners.
Yanui Beach is set in a little cove with a hill on each end, and has emerald green water and jagged rocks you can explore while snorkeling (snorkel gear rental available). There is a rocky bottom and some coral under the water, so bring protective rubber shoes for this spot. There are kayaks for rent here which you can use to paddle out to the small island, Koh Man, about 325 meters (almost a quarter-mile) away. Umbrellas and beach chairs are usually also available for a small fee.
To keep your hunger away and satisfy your appetite on a hot sunny day, the Yanui Restaurant, opposite the beach, has a very good selection of Thai and western food (pasta, pizza, and sandwiches etc.) as well as a good variety of drinks from water to fresh coconuts and cocktails to ice-cold Tiger or Chang beer. Don’t forget, while crossing the street, to look “RIGHT & LEFT”… you are in Thailand :).
There is also another restaurant close by; and you can always cater for yourself from the vendors passing through with fruits and snacks. There are also quite a few shops and restaurants 500 meters down the road towards Rawai. You should stop and have a look, this is one of the most scenic beaches and bays in Phuket – highly recommended.
There aren’t any beach clubs at this small beach.
