Nai Thon / Layan
Nai Thon Beach
Nai Thon Beach (หาดในทอน)
This quiet bay nestled at the foot of high hills has a fine strip of the sand. It is a beautiful beach, and until now not developed commercially. There are some accommodations but virtually no other business. Ideal for swimming and dining in the small restaurants in high season, the area is very isolated and nearly forgotten in low season, when the occasional stormy sea make the bay unattractive or even dangerous.

Located between Bang Tao Bay and Nai Yang Beach, Nai Thon Beach can be reached by taking Thep Krasatri Rd. Turn at the first traffic light north of Thalang Town to Nai Yang Rd. Look for signs indicating the turn-off to Nai Thon. The journey is definitely worthwhile, especially from the south, as the long winding road reminds a lot of the Southern areas of Europe. Aside of swimming there are very good diving and snorkeling spots, most of them accessible only by boat which can be arranged at local dive shops on the Beach Road. Entertainment and nightlife are very limited to a few beach bars and shopping is pretty much the selection of a few mini marts.
Layan Beach (หาดลายัน)
Layan Beach is at the northern end of Bang Tao area where the beach meets a river and a lagoon. Many birds and other wildlife call this area home as they can enjoy the peacefulness of the lagoon. The many small tracks which cover the hillside of the beach are well known by climbers and bird watchers. You can reach the beach by walking pass the Laguna Phuket Resort or by following the highway and turning in to Nai Thon beach at the road sign. Layan Beach Resort & Spa Village is the only resort on this beach.

The beach can be accessed by a small road passing close by the Banyan Tree Golf Club. Altogether though the beach is quite limited and for swimming tourists and residents prefer to head to Bang Tao Beach, a 10 to 15 minute walk south.
How to get there?
Nai Thon Beach (หาดในทอน)
This beach is on the winding coast road between Bang Tao and Nai Yang. The road runs right along the beach. From Bang Tao, get on to the coast road and it will lead you to Mai Thon. The coast road is a little difficult to find if you are coming from this end. Drive north passed the entrance to Laguna. Three kilometers on there is a left hand turn at the start of a right hand bend. This is the coast road. Alternatively drive north along Thepkrasattri Road and drive straight through Thalang. Turn left at the next traffic lights towards Nai Yang Beach. After about 6km, you will see a left hand turn signposted towards Mai Thon.
Layan Beach (หาดลายัน)
Get to this beach from the coast road between Bang Tao and Mai Thon. From there turn onto Soi Layan 4 and drive passed the two holiday resorts to the end of the road.
