Laem Singh Beach

Everything You Need to Know About Laem Singh Beach

Laem Singh Beach is one of Phuket's most beautiful beaches and hides on the west coast between Kamala and Surin beaches. Being nestled in a steep-sided bay, lined with nodding palm trees and dotted with giant boulders, it has the feel of a secret beach. It’s not a very well-kept secret, though, as it’s overlooked by a popular viewpoint along the coastal road.

The northern part of the beach is good for body-boarding. The swimming and snorkelling is excellent in the southern part, with loads of fish to see around the rocky headland which separates the beach from Kamala Bay. Being a little challenging to get to, you can find a peaceful, remote vibe without having to travel too far from the popular resort towns of Phuket.

Getting to Laem Singh Beach

Once an extremely popular spot for sunbathing, snorkeling and swimming, direct access to Laem Singh Beach has been restricted because of a land dispute. However, you can still get onto the sand (which is public land) by taking a boat ride from the southern end of Surin Beach.

A seat on the boat costs 100 baht per person, or 400 baht for the whole boat, if you don’t want to wait for other passengers. Note that there’s no pier at either end. You’ll have to wade out to the boat and climb up into it, which will mean getting your feet wet.

Laem Singh Viewpoint

Laem Singh Viewpoint is a popular stop on the coast road between Kamala Beach and Surin Beach. Offering a pleasant place to rest a while, with seating and a roof providing shelter from the sun, you can enjoy great views to the south across the namesake beach below and it is a popular place for watching Phuket’s impressive sunsets.
