Scenic Lookout
“Karon Viewpoint (which used to be Kata viewpoint) is one of the most frequented viewpoints in Phuket. From here, it is possible to take in views of Kata Noi, Kata Yai and Karon beaches. Located between Nai Harn and Kata Noi beaches, the viewpoint is busy most days of the year and is a staple of many tour itineraries. Called locally ‘Khao Saam Haad’ (Three Beaches Hill), the local municipality for some reason has officially renamed it ‘Karon Viewpoint’. It’s located just to the south of Kata Noi Beach and looks out directly out to the Andaman Sea but most people have their cameras trained due north at the undeniably impressive eight-kilometre vista of the three west coast beaches with Mom Tri’s Villa Royale in the foreground and the distant Hilton Arcadia on Karon Beach in the background. ”

“If you are looking for an extraordinary beach to go snorkelling on, there are plenty to choose from on the island; however my absolute favourite choice is Ao Sane Beach (near Nai Harn). This beach is a well kept secret on the southwest side of the island and is small, measuring a mere 200 meters in length.”

Sports
“Sinbi Muay Thai Camp in Phuket Thailand is a traditional gym which focuses on providing excellence in Muay Thai training. Its location near the most beautiful beach on Phuket, Nai Harn Beach, makes it one of the most desirable gyms on the island to visit and train at. Sinbi Muay Thai gym exists to support and train our young Thai fighters as well as to provide real Muay Thai training to students from other countries who wish to improve their fitness/technique. The exceptional quality of training at the gym is exemplified by the fact we regularly attract the best fighters in the sport who choose Sinbi when they have a fight South of Bangkok. For example Saenchai Sinbimuaythai previously trained here for 1.5 years and the likes of Saiyok Pumpunmuang can sometimes be seen at our Muay Thai training camp.”
