Naithon beach (Nai Thon) is located in the Northern part of the island on the West coast a little ways from the main roads, and getting to him, you have to drive through the winding roads between the hills (Niton on the island map). Aside from the beaches Nai Yang and Mai Khao, Naithon is part of the Sirinat national Park.

Near the beach, formed a full-fledged tourist area, however, are quite modest: everything in this area revolves around a few expensive hotels and for budget travellers there is virtually no possibilities. If in Knighton you will need to exchange money, buy a tour or rent a car to find it it is possible only in hotels. Shopping opportunities are no, even for the most basic things will have to go to other areas of the island. The same applies to entertainment. The only thing in the area except for hotels, restaurants and cafes on the beach.

The beach Naithon beach is very wide but not very long, just 1 kilometre away. Umbrellas there, but no water activities. Along the beach lined up a series of restaurants and cafes. The sand is fine, almost white and very pleasant, but little trees, mostly coniferous trees. Although the beach is in a Cove, the waves here are formed quite strong, especially in the Northern part of the beach, so it is common to see surfers. The depth here is normal, so the beach is perfect for swimming, if only not to disturb the waves.

Unfortunately, in low season or other periods when local hotels few guests, the beach is not clean, and it is gradually overgrown with debris brought by the waves on the beach.

To get to Nai Thon only by taxi and the transport. The trip from the airport here will cost you 1000 baht. If you go on your own, keep in mind that the road here is winding, goes to the mountain then the mountain, so be careful.

Hotels in Knighton are only a few, and not cheap. Potential for budget accommodation here, we do not know, most likely because it is not.

Find and book accommodation in Phuket can on these sites or via the search form. All sites have Russian interface and Russian-speaking customer support, numerous real guests reviews. And in Agoda and Booking are bonus system:

Summing up about Knighton. This secluded district, which was formed only thanks to a few local expensive hotels. And although tourist area here and there but hotels and restaurants infrastructure from nothing. Budget travelers have nothing to do here. The beach itself, though good, in our opinion not worth it to go for a swim here from other beaches.

Hello Anna! I think such beaches in Phuket there is at least on the West coast, primarily because of the slope of the bottom. He is everywhere small, a sharp gradient there. But more or less to suit your needs can come to Karon, Bang Tao or Kamala. ...
