Laem Ka Beach (near Rawai)

Everything you need to know about Laem Ka Beach

Laem Ka is unique for various reasons. First of all it's the only eastern-facing beach in the south of Phuket that offers good swimming and secondly, it's a total full-on Thai experience.

This sheltered, 150 metre long, boulder-framed beach is the ideal picnic spot as from midday on it is shady and cool. For many locals it offers the opportunity to chat away Sunday afternoon while their children splash around in Laem Ka's safe and blue waters just metres away.

Foreign visitors have a warm welcome here and often locals will ask to take a photo of you posing with them as a keepsake!

The views of nearby Koh Bon, Koh Lone, Coral Island and other surrounding islands are stunning, and the afternoon light playing on the water produces a deep marine blue next to the tropical green of nearby islands. 


To get to Laem Ka head to Rawai in the south of the island. Opposite the temple gates on the main road you'll see a 7-Eleven next to a small road heading east.

Go straight up this road, past a checkpoint then drive one kilometre through a coconut plantation. Follow the road to the right and into Laem Ka's car park.

Laem Ka Beach Restaurants

Ambulant food vendors arrive from time to time selling snacks but to be sure of food it's best to stock up at the 7-Eleven on the main road or at one of the barbecued chicken vendors at the entrance to the coconut plantation. 

Laem Ka Beach Activities

The southern end of the beach is rocky but at high tide it is perfectly possible to swim out and snorkel. The middle of the beach is dominated by large granite boulders - the habitat of many crab species whereas the northern end offers fewer rocks and is a favourite splashing, frolicking and swimming spot. Laem Ka is a kids-friendly beach because of its safe waters and shade-giving trees.

Laem Ka is situated right next to the Evason Resort & Spa. Other local up-market hotels include the Mangosteen Resort & Spa and Le Royal Phuket Yacht Club. Rawai and nearby Nai Harn have many mid-range and cheap guesthouses to choose from.
