Within close proximity to Sapphire Villas is Nai Harn Beach and Village, where you find a selection of shops to supply your daily needs. Firstly at the beach you see market stalls selling beachwear, summer clothes and footwear, beach accessories, hats, sun cream, toys and cheap souvenirs. There are also minimarts to be founds for drinks and snacks, and vendors selling fresh fruit, so you will find everything necessary for a day at the beach.
Away from the beach, at Promthep Cape, half way between Nai Harn and Rawai there is a stretch of around 30 market stalls selling many locally produced clothes, ornaments, silk cushions and bed runners, tee shirts with souvenir writing and slogans, hats, sunglasses and a range of inexpensive items you may need while you are here, or wish to take home. As Promthep cape also offers a great viewpoint for stunning sunsets and a cheap restaurant for Thai meals, it is a very popular destination at sunset, so if you wish to pop up there for some shopping we recommend a visit mid-morning.
In Nai Harn Village itself, there are other shops selling clothes and ornaments, and a couple of fabulous art shops (that will disassemble and pack any painting for you to transport safely home), plus a variety of minimarts and small supermarkets to purchase day to day groceries and essential items from. Nai Harn has several "7 Eleven" stores, in addition to the "Family Mart", "Tesco Express" and "TOPS Daily" small supermarkets. A larger "Tesco Lotus" and "Wine Connection" with a fresh bakery, are located at the Tesco Rawai shopping complex only a few minutes away towards Chalong Circle.
