Laem Sing Beach

Beautiful but overcrowded beach.

This article is out-of-date. Access to the beach from land is not possible at the moment; however, you can still access the beach by boat. You can find long tail boats offering transport at Kamala Beach and at Surin Beach.

Laem Sing Beach is one of the somewhat inaccessible beaches in Phuket. You will have to enter down a steep path, or you will have to enter the beach from the sea.

At both ends of the beach, you will find a parking lot and an entrance to the beach. However, you will have to pass over private land to get to the beach; and for that, you will have to pay 100 baht (100 baht).

At Laem Sing Beach, you can rent mattresses and parasols. The 10-percent zones stipulated by the governor is not in effect here, as you can clearly see in this photo:

Laem Sing Beach is about 300 meters (275 yards) long; it is a beautiful beach with cliffs and surrounding forest. The quality of the sand and the water is fine; in addition, the water around the rocks at both ends of the beach is fine for snorkelling.

Unfortunately, the many tourists and the "sun loungers" put a damper on the natural charm of the beach. If you want a similar, yet more unspoilt beach, you can go little further north and visit Banana Beach.

Surrounded by forest, there are no hotels near Laem Sing Beach. You will find a few hotels at the south end of Surin Beach a little bit further north.

I have not yet written about all of the beaches; thus, there are many inactive links on the list. Please be patient, I will get to them. The list is in geographical order, starting at the north side of Phuket, then down the west side and finally up the east side.
