Nai Yang is a long curved bay fringed with tall casuarinas trees, providing an ideal spot for the many picnickers who come to this beach at the weekends.
There are a few local seafood stalls and restaurants along part of the beach. Camping is allowed on the beach and the park authority also rents out bungalows. There are a few other privately run bungalow operations as well as a couple of resorts.
Nai Yang is part of the Sirinath National Park, and lies between Mai Kao beach, to the north, and Nai Thon beach, to the south. The area was declared a national park in 1981 to protect the sea turtles that lay their eggs here from November to February.
