Laem Singh Beach hides on the west coast between Kamala and Surin beaches in Phuket. 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 you can see it from a popular viewpoint along the coastal road.

The northern part of the beach is good for bodyboarding. Swimming and snorkelling are excellent in the southern part, with loads of fish to see around the rocky headland which separates the beach from Kamala Bay. As it's a little challenging to get to Laem Singh Beach, you can expect a peaceful, remote vibe without having to travel too far from the popular resort towns of Phuket.

How to get to Laem Singh Beach

Once a very busy spot for sunbathing, snorkelling and swimming, direct access to Laem Singh Beach has been restricted due to a land dispute. You can still get onto the sand (which is public land) by taking a boat ride from the southern end of Surin Beach.

A trip to Laem Singh Beach costs from 100 baht per person or 400 baht for the entire boat. Note that there’s no pier for boarding – you’ll have to wade out to the ocean and climb into the boat.

Laem Singh Viewpoint

Laem Singh Viewpoint is a popular stop on the coast road between Kamala Beach and Surin Beach in Phuket.
