A new blacktop road will take you winding along through rubber plantations and hills overlooking the Andaman Sea where coral reefs show clearly beneath the azure blue water and waves breaking over magnificent rock formations offers yet another breathtaking scene as you make your way along this 15 minute journey to one of the most beautiful and isolated beaches on the island.
As you descend the last hill you will find a peaceful, quiet cove, beautiful along its length, and well sheltered from wind and waves and offers wonderful swimming. Both ends of the beach are flanked with rocky headlands jutting out to the sea.
Corals and rich marine life are drawn to the rocks and they offer excellent fishing. There is a small fishing village across the road from the beach with some small bungalows and a few small restaurants. There is seldom more than few people on the beach but if you want total solitude backtrack down the road south keeping a sharp lookout and you will find two small beaches. A magnificient Bungalow Resort and Spa offers amazing views right on the Naithon Beach.
The journey to the beach is almost more enjoyable than the beach itself. On the southern approach to Nai Thon, the narrow road leads through some of the island's last remaining virgin jungle, and winds along a coastline that rivals Cote d'Azur in its brilliant beauty. If driving to Nai Thon from the north, the road takes you through a village then into a lush green valley before reaching the beach. Activities to be enjoyed whilst staying here include exploring rocky coves only accessible by longtail boat and scuba diving which can be arranged by the dive shop on the Beach Road.
hated by many, loved by others. A noisy dangerous craft that should be forbidden say those that hate it. Others see it like a action craft made for fun while going for full speed jumping over the waves as the ocean act like a race track with no limits, except to avoid hitting other boats that could come in the way or swimmers. But swimmers are safe so long they stay inside the swimming area marked by buoys. Costing 600-700 baht for 30 minutes either you go along or with a friend. As with parasailing the jetski operator can go with you if wanted.
