The east coast of Ko Nakha Yai has three sandy beaches. It is best to anchor off the middle beach in no less than 5 meters. The middle beach has a row of deck chairs and beach umbrellas and some beach bars that open in the daytime only. Visit after 1600 for a sundowner Rum cocktail served in a coconut. Tenta Nakhara resort behind the north beach has a good local restaurant. Point Yamut Day Resort only open until 16h00, unless tides are over 1,8m. No ice or trash disposal.
There is a dangerous reef in front of the southern beach so stay well offshore.
Access is impossible on tides below 1.8 meters as there is a flat rocky reef extending about 100 meters out from the shore.
North East season: Not suitable for an overnight stop.
South West season: Good anchorage.
