Hua Beach, some two kilometres up the Millionaires' Mile road in Kamala, might well have been the last truly secret beach on Phuket. But since a small handmade sign was posted at its entrance a few months ago, the secret's out. The 300-metre lane leading to the beach takes you through a lush landscape with thick trees arching over the road, ending at a small car park area next to a basic restaurant. Tall casuarina and palm trees line the beach, reaching out over Hua's golden sand. Next to the restaurant is a concrete foundation that looks like it's been long abandoned to the jungle - someone's dream tropical villa that didn't quite come to fruition perhaps. Aside from the restaurant, some bundles of fishing nets and a few plastic dinghy boats scattered about, there's nothing here but sand and sea. If you time it right you might have this beach all to yourself, aside from the resident kittens racing across the sand.
