13 miles from Patong Bay
In the north, and the largest of the three beaches on the headland, Naithon Beach offers good holding in the centre of the bay in 6-10 metres on a sandy bottom.
Good snorkelling may be found on either point. Ashore, you’ll find a beach road that leads to the airport, some new resorts and, in the small bay one mile south, the older Andaman White Sands Resort.
