Ao Sane Beach is a secluded hidden gem in the south of Phuket, located only a few minutes drive from the beautiful Nai Harn Beach. When we first discovered this cute little paradise, we fell completely in LOVE with it! In fact, it was still rainy season, so we were pleasantly surprised that we found a secret beach, perfect for swimming and snorkeling all year round.
Ao Sane Beach – a quite secret beach, ideal for swimming, snorkeling and relaxing
This beautiful piece of heaven consists of three small picturesque beaches. Our absolute favorite is the first beach, which is actually the biggest one. It has some lovely facilities such as comfy sun chairs, a small dive shop and a local beach restaurant. For those who don’t want to rent a beach chair, there are some good free shades under trees on both sides of the beach.
Ao Sane Beach – a serene small paradise for families with babies and kids
Ao Sane is a wonderful beach for families with babies and kids. The place is peaceful and serene, even in high season. The kids just love playing on the rocks and swimming in the beautiful transparent green water, which remains calm all year round.
Ao Sane Beach – one of the best spots for snorkeling in Phuket
Ao Sane is for sure one of the best spots for snorkeling in Phuket. The underwater views are absolutely breathtaking! We are more than happy that we live close to this hidden gem, which is ideal for snorkeling even in rainy season. If you don’t have your own snorkeling gear, you can rent it from the little dive shop on the beach. Some enthusiasts also take their first dive lesson here : )
Where to eat at Ao Sane Beach
There is a lovely small beach restaurant with incredible views over the sea. They serve a traditional Thai food at reasonable prices.
How to get to Ao Sane beach
Head to Nai Harn beach and take the road through The Nai Harn (a luxury white-washed hotel, located on the right side of the beach). Continue driving on the tiny road that will lead you to a small parking lot with a big sign “Ao Sane Bungalow & Restaurant”.
Don’t miss the chance to stop on the road and enjoy the view over Ao Sane Beach and the pure surrounding nature. It’s absolutely stunning!
