Nai Thon is one of the most beautiful and isolated beaches on the island. Both ends of the beach have rocky headlands jutting out to the sea. Off the rocks offers excellent fishing. There is a small fishing village across the road from the beach with one small bungalow complex and a few small restaurants.
At the moment there is a lot of resort building activity going on at Nai Thon. One of the newest resorts here is Andaman White Beach Resort. This is a place you will have to discover yourself as surfing at Nai Thon beach is top secret! A hint though, walk onto the beach and look to the far left (south) end, behind the rocks.
