A Short Look at Yamu Beach in Phuket, Center of Recent Controversy


Yamu Beach has recently been in headlines across Thailand after a debate between a Swiss expat and a Thai doctor over an alleged kicking incident on steps leading to his rented villa from the beach.

However, many readers are not familiar with Yamu Beach so let’s give it a brief highlight:

Yamu Beach is a secluded and exclusive spot located on the northeastern tip of Cape Yamu in Phuket, Thailand. While it doesn’t have a major sandy beach, it compensates with its breathtaking views of Phang Nga Bay and the surrounding limestone formations.

Here are some key points about Yamu Beach:

1. Tranquility: Due to its isolation, Yamu Beach remains quiet and peaceful, making it an ideal escape for those seeking serenity away from the bustling crowds.

2. Exclusive Properties: The rocky point of Yamu hosts some of Phuket’s most luxurious and exclusive properties. Visitors can admire stunning villas and residences perched along the coastline.

3. Natural Beauty: Although there’s no major traditional beach, the rugged coastline and crystal-clear waters create a picturesque setting. It’s a great place for nature lovers and photographers.

4. Cape Yamu: Beyond the beach, Cape Yamu offers panoramic views, lush greenery, and a sense of seclusion. It’s a hidden gem for travelers seeking a more authentic experience.

Remember that while Yamu Beach may not be your typical sandy beach, its exclusivity and natural beauty make it a captivating destination for discerning travelers.
