Natai Beach Guide

Everything You Need To Know About Natai Beach

Natai Beach is a quiet, peaceful and exclusive escape in Phang Nga Province, just 6km north of Phuket. It is a 10km-long strip of unspoilt beach, with strict building regulations and numerous protected zones ensuring that it retains its special feeling of isolation, giving visitors a sense of complete separation from the troubles of the world, with only the sand between your toes and the gentle swishing of the waves to disturb you.

The virtually unheard-of Natai Beach is sometimes also known as Pilai Beach after the nearby Pilai village. While its soft white sands and beautiful clear waters are starting to get some attention – including from international celebrities – Natai Beach still has none of the jet skis, speedboats, tailor shops and towering hotels which blight other similarly stunning destinations. Instead, you will find only coconut groves and flowery lagoons along the quiet road which runs parallel to most of the beach.

Natai Beach Facilities

There are extremely few facilities of any sort to be found on Natai Beach; it’s simply not that sort of a place. You will find no wandering peddlers, no beach chairs or umbrellas, no beach massage cabanas; nothing except the sun, sea and sand, with the occasional hotel or villa resort between the tall casuarina trees.

There is one beachfront restaurant (which is not attached to a resort) – Rabian Lay Thai seafood – which serves typical Thai dishes for a typical sort of Thai price of 100 to 200 baht each. The nearby town of Khok Kloi has a much greater choice of cheap eateries, as well as ATMs and convenience stores.

There is a public pier along the beach, where the local fishermen land their day’s catch, making it a busy place early in the morning or late in the afternoon. It is very quiet for most of the day, with just a couple of long-tail boats moored by the beach.

Where to Stay near Natai Beach

The building laws of Natai Beach prevent the construction of any hotel with more than 80 rooms. With little enough beachfront land available between protected forests and conservation areas, the relatively few properties there are mostly high-end, including some multi-million-dollar private residences.

The very highest of the high-end hotels available is Iniala Beach House. It features striking and original room designs housed in innovative villas – each very different from the last - with five-star shared facilities including a restaurant helmed by a three Michelin-starred chef.

Hotels for the more budget-conscious traveller to Natai Beach can be found inland, such as the Waterjade Resort. Located on the shores of a small lagoon, whose deep green waters give the hotel its name, it has simple but comfortable rooms and immediate access

Getting to Natai Beach

Natai Beach about a 40-minute drive from Phuket International Airport. Simple follow Thepkassatri Road north, crossing Sarasin Bridge over to mainland Thailand. Less than 4km after the bridge, take a left turn onto Route 3006. A few minutes later, you will be at the southernmost part of the beach. Route 3006 follows the beach for most of its length.
