Things to do in Layan
Sirinat National Park
Close to beautiful Layan Beach lies Sirinat National Park, an unspoild natural treasure. Spanning thirteen kilometers of pristine tropical beaches, this peaceful and unspoild place offers a refreshing escape from the tourist frenzy.
Sirinat National Park is a true paradise for nature lovers. By protecting its diverse flora and fauna, it offers visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in an unspoild ecosystem and experience natural beauty in all its splendour. From rare bird species to endangered sea turtles, you will have the unique opportunity to observe an exceptional biodiversity.
You will also have the opportunity to see and enjoy the beaches of the park like Mai Khao Beach (our favourite spot to watch the planes land at the end of the runway at Phuket International Airport)
Nai Thon Beach
Nai Thon Beach, one of the lesser-known beaches on the west coast of Phuket next to Layan, away from the crowded areas like Patong Beach or Kata Beach. People have chosen to stay here to find a peaceful village with just enough restaurants and hotels to not feel too far away but still all the facilities needed for a good holiday.
