What to Do in Ao Sane?

Ao Sane Beach (pronounced Ao Sain) is proof that Phuket still has some little beaches hidden from view where you can pretend nothing has changed in the past twenty years. Of course, there is no such thing as a ‘secret beach‘ anymore, but you have to make a little effort to get there. Ao Sane is very visible from Nai Harn Beach, but you will not find out unless you know that you need to drive through The Nai Harn Resort.

The second beach of Ao Sane

Ao Sane consists of three tiny sandy bays, and you can walk from one to another through the few beach bungalows. These might be small tiny sandy coves, but it is a good feeling to step on one.

What to Do in Ao Sane?


You can rent a couple of beach chairs on Ao Sane Beach for 200 baht a day and even snorkelling gear at the tiny ‘Armin’s Dive Shop’. You can also take your first dive lesson right there for 950 baht! Just remember that parking space at Ao Sane Beach is limited.Ao Sane Beach

Ao Sane is a great snorkelling beach also used for beach diving. It is one of the few beaches calm enough to snorkel during the rainy season.


Where to Eat?


Ao Sane Restaurant

The first beach is the largest. It has everything you need for the day, including a nice beach restaurant where people seem to spend a lot of time in the tree shade. Food is good and prices acceptable.

Where to Stay on Ao Sane?


There are a few accommodation options to stay around Ao Sane. The best known are, of course, The Nai Harn, but it can be pricey.

The Nai Harn Resort

The Nai Harn is, without a doubt, the most beautiful hotel in the south of Phuket. This iconic hotel is a well-established 5-star resort with amazing views from each room, an immense panoramic rooftop and an excellent beach restaurant.

Cheaper accommodation

On the beach itself, we found three places. Baan Krating is the largest, and you can book it online. Jungle resort seems to be quite good. Interesting is the super cheap bungalows on the beach itself called ‘Ao Sane Bungalow อ่าวเสนบังกะโล’. They look extremely basic but seem to be popular. The prices are between 600 baht and 1300 baht.

Small bungalows made of bamboo and thatched roofs along the beach are rather basic but not cheap, around 800 baht per night for a fan room, but what a setting! Just looking at the few lucky people idly sitting on their wooden balcony makes you feel the pace of tropical life. More luxurious are the Baan Krating beachfront bungalows, but it starts at around 4,000 baht a night. The Baan Krating Resort mostly uses the second and third beaches, but you can go there and have a drink or even a beach massage.
