Welcome to Mai Khao Beach Hotel & Information
Mai Khao Beach Introduction
Mai Khao is a beach on the northwestern side of Phuket, Thiailand. It's also known as Airport Beach or Sanambin Beach (the Thai word for "airport"), as it's very close to the airport. The northern portion is known as Hat Sai Kaeo, a long white sandy beach with groves of pines along the shore.
Mai Khao is part of the Sirinath National Park, which also includes Nai Yang and Nai Thon, the next beaches along to the south. The area was declared as a national park in 1981 to protect the Olive Ridley Sea Turtles that lay their eggs here from November to February.
The sea here is fine for swimming during the dry season but a strong undertow and large waves make Mai Khao particularly dangerous for swimmers between May and October.
