Nai Yang Beach

Nai Yang Beach

Nai Yang is a long curved bay fringed with tall casuarinas trees. The beach is a popular spot among locals who come to picnic on the weekends.

There are also a few local seafood stalls and restaurants along part of the beach. Camping is allowed on the beach.

Nai Yang is part of the Sirinath National Park, which also includes Mai Kao, the next beach along to the north, and Nai Thon, the next beach along to the south. The area was declared a national park in 1981 to protect the Olive Ridley Sea Turtles that lay their eggs here from November to February.


See Nai Yang map.


Nai Yang can be quite good for swimming although the current can be quite dangerous during the rainy season between May and October. There is a large coral reef about 1km offshore that is worth exploring.
