Yae Beach is a small beach on the west side of Phuket Island, just 3.7 km. northwest of Patong Beach, Phuket’s most populated beach area. The total length of this beach is 220 meters, and depending on tides, it can range from 10 to 20 meters wide.

The Naka Phuket luxury resort occupies the land behind the beach. This very highly rated resort has modern villas in an upscale resort with private beach, a pool and spa and fine dining. If you stay at this resort, you’ll see the amazing infinity pool right beside Yae Beach. Though it’s a private beach, you can reach it easily by boat if you care to. Taking a long tail boat from Patong Beach is the easiest way to reach this rather secluded beach. Total time on the water will be about ten minutes. Villas start at around 10,000 Thai Baht.

If you find yourself still around at sunset, there is a great little beach bar on the east side of the beach called “The Nana Beach Bar” where cocktails are highly rated. And if you get there in the morning, there is a really good breakfast buffet that hotel guests mention often in their comments.
