Ao Yon is a small bay in the south of Phuket. There are two small beaches separated by rocky headlands.
Ao Yon Junior is a very peaceful and beautiful beach that is virtually deserted and holds spectacular views of the Chalong Bay and Lone Island.
Just over the rocky hills you will find Ao Yon Senior. With it's fine white sand, overhanging coconut palms for shade and a beautiful blue sea that sparkles in the sunlight. It is a wonderful place to picnic, swim or just relax in the south. There are no restaurants or bars on the beach, you'll need to bring your own food and snacks.
Snorkeling is not permitted and the locals ask that you, while you are swimming, stay away from the pearl farms; but if you are feeling extra adventurous, there is a waterfall to explore just west where cool refreshing water runs down from the hills.
Ao Yon Senior is an excellent spot for mooring and home to the Phuket Yacht Club. There are many yachts here and most weekends activities are held for local children.
Please remember to take all your empties and garbage with you when you leave.
