Attraction Details :
Sirinat is the marine national park in the north part of Phuket island, covering an area of 90 square kilometers, including a 13-kilometer beachfront coastline. Before 1992, it was formerly known as Nai Yang National Park. The name change was a result of the expansion of Nai Yang National Park, established in 1981, to also cover Mai Khao Beach to celebrate the 60th birthday of Queen Sirikit.
The 13-kilometer coastline of the national park covers four connecting beaches, which are also famous tourism attractions:
● Hat Nai Thon: A peaceful beach that lays underneath pine trees. Naithon offers a laid-back vibe and is suitable for swimming.
● Hat Nai Yang: The original national park since 1081, Nai Yang is serene and isolated, ideal for family picnics by the beach under pine trees. Swimming in the sea during monsoon season is not advised.
● Hat Mai Khao: Phuket’s longest beach sits right next to the airport and is home to a cluster of world’s top luxury resorts and villas such as Anantara, JW Marriott and Renaissance. Mai Khao is a steep beach with high waves so swimming is not recommended. It is also home to wonderful sea turtles and there’s a sea turtle preserving event held annually.
● Hat Sai Kaeo: It is Phuket’s northmost beach located to the north, further Mai Khao. Hat Sai Kaeo is blessed with a long white powdery beach naturally decorated with groves of pines along the shore---ideal for relaxation.
● Mangrove Forest: Located in near the island’s northmost tip in the area of Tha Chatchai, the mangrove forest covers an area of approximately 320 acres and features interesting walking trails for those wishing to learn more about the mangrove forest.
