Laem Singh Beach

Everything You Need to Know About Laem Singh Beach

NOTE: Laem Singh Beach is currently CLOSED.

Laem Singh Beach is one of Phuket's most beautiful beaches and hides on the west coast between Kamala and Surin beaches. 'Laem' is Thai for 'cape' and this 150-metre beach is indeed situated under a steep promontory. Nestled in a hidden bay, surrounded by palm trees and dotted with giant boulders, it has a feeling of secret beach.

Sadly, it is a secret which is now quite widely known and, as a result of this and its limited size, the beach gets a little crowded during the high season and even pleasantly busy on low season sunny days. Even the additional of a 100 baht per person fee to access the beach has not dampened its popularity.

From the main Beach Road, two pathways lead down from two separate car parks located just to the north and to the south of Laem Singh Beach. These paths are not easy to negotiate and descent time is around five very careful minutes, with the northernmost path being the easier of the two. During high season, parking might be scarce and will cost you 20 baht for a motorcycle and 40 baht for a car.

The most popular restaurant is certainly 'Ristorante Da Ali' with his well known host "Ali' followed by two other Thai restaurants will be the perfect opportunity for a lazy and shady lunch with your feet in the sand. The general atmosphere among the restaurant workers is extremely friendly and you will receive a warm welcome.
