Mai Khao remains one of Phuket’s hidden gems. Located north of Phuket International Airport, the area has seen some development during the past decade, but remains a peaceful destination for those wanting to avoid the hordes of people in Patong or elsewhere.
If you’re looking to explore a different side of Phuket, Mai Khao just may be the place for you. The beach is nice, there is some shopping and dining and the ambiance is more relaxed. Here are four places to check out in Mai Khao.

Mai Khao Beach Condotel
If you like the idea of Phuket real estate investment, Mai Khao is a great location. No project offers as much as Mai Khao Beach Condotel, winner of Best Condotel Phuket at the Dot Property Thailand Awards 2018. The development boasts a full range of amenities along with nice unit sizes and a great location.
But what really stands out about Mai Khao Beach Condotel is the fact that it’s the first fully licensed condotel to be built on the island of Phuket. The project provides investors with an opportunity for better rental returns due to the fact units can be rented out on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. A 5-star hotel brand will manage Mai Khao Beach Condotel once it is completed. Best of all, owners will be entitled to use their units for a set number of days each year.
If you want to do some shopping but don’t feel like driving to some of the island’s major retail complexes, Turtle Village is the place to go. This boutique shopping centre has a range of restaurants as well as a market and convenience stores. There is a Jim Thompson outlet in Turtle Village as well as a Coffee Club and a number of speciality shops.
Sirinat National Park
Covering both land and sea, Sirinat National Park is a fantastic place for exploring. It is probably best known for being home to nesting turtles and coral reefs, but you’ll find plenty of nice beaches and a few other outdoor activities inside. And it’s far less busy than other natural retreats in Phuket.
