A beautiful beach on the South West Corner of Phuket Island Thailand

Nai Harn Beach Thailand.jpg

A bay where many boats congregate at this time, in this bay before leaving on their way Westward. However, over the years the surf has taken many lives and destroyed all manner of cruising boats. Local fishermen never overnight here.

Only yesterday on the last day of the Kings Cup, a multihull came to grief on the rocks that line the flanks of this beautiful bay. At this time the prevailing North East Monsoon ensures a quite and peaceful anchorage; But, NaiHarn did not conform, a strong wind and sea came in for hours from the West.
