Yanui Beach is located in the southern part of Phuket, a 5-minute drive from Nai Harn beach. The beach is relatively small, about 100 meters long, but cozy and very picturesque. Wedding photography is often held here, and Yanui is also considered one of the best places for sunset..

Yanui is located in a cove surrounded by cliffs on all sides, so that even in the windy season, the beach is not subject to serious waves. In the southern part there is Cape Promtep (Promthep cape). In the north, Yanui is protected by a hill, on top of which there is an observation deck (WindMill ViewPoint), which offers a wonderful view of the area and the neighboring beach.
There is also a wind power generator. Not far from the coast there is a small island of Koh Man, which you can swim to if you want, but you won't be able to sunbathe here, as it is surrounded by rocks and reefs.
Entering the water, depth and waves
The beach itself is conditionally divided into two parts by a small rocky ledge, on both sides you can swim. The sea here is very calm, the entrance to the water is comfortable, sandy, gradually turning into a rocky surface.
The place is great for a family vacation, though with some reservations. The water is so clear that all the underwater stones and marine life are visible, this creates excellent conditions for lovers of water diving.
Sun beds and shade
There are many sun beds here, as well as shadows. A very cozy place, compact, everything is close by. There are no sun loungers for rent, but for a cocktail at a bar nearby with sun loungers, you can get the right to use one of them. In case anyone is interested in reading about other places, I have a short overview of all the beaches of Phuket, will help you decide on the choice of the beach.
This is not to say that the beach is crowded, but during the season there are not so few tourists here. For a comfortable stay on Yanue there are all the necessary attributes. Sun loungers with umbrellas are placed along the beach, there are cafes and restaurants, massage can be done right on the beach, it is possible to rent a kayak or scooter.
There are only a few attractions near Yanui Beach: Cape Promtep, Buddhist temple-monastery Nai Harn Monastery, Lake Nai Harn (a central place for active sports entertainment) and observation deck Windmill near the windmills, but it will be difficult to get there on foot, since uphill.
Houses and hotels on the beach
There are few accommodation options in this area. You can stay at the Ya-Nui Resort, which is a 10-minute walk from the beach, rent a bungalow practically on the shore from 1500 baht per day, or rent a room at The Windmill Phuket Hotel, which is located a little inland, but still not very far from the beach..
