Where to Surf in Phuket

The Phuket surfing scene is beginning to make a name for itself. Phuket's West Coast is slowly but surely gaining a reputation as a surf destination. Okay, so this is no Waikiki, and surfers here would be the first to admit that, but the island's West Coast is the best place for surfing in Thailand.

The surfing season in Phuket roughly starts in April and ends in November. Do not expect huge waves nor tubes – around three metres seems to be the maximum height, but there are a few good spots at designated beaches which offer surf aficionados enough thrill to come and spend their holiday in Phuket during low season.

Here's a brief surfing guide to Phuket's beaches.

Where to Surf in Phuket - Beaches

Bangtao Beach

Bangtao Beach is a pretty good place for absolute beginners to learn and develop their surfing skills. The middle of the beach is protected from the swells and some smaller waves are eminently rideable. Further north along the beach, the waves can get up to 3 metres as it's exposed to the wind. Shifting sandbanks make the going unpredictable, but sometimes it's near-perfect here.

Kata Noi Beach

The good waves at Kata Noi Beach are usually off the northern headland and can be quite fast, but good at times. The right-hander main wave breaks near the northern headland. Winds are southeasterly to northeasterly with waves up to 2 metres.
