Laem Singh Beach

Laem Singh Beach

A small secluded beach that can get quite crowded during the high season. Easy to get to but can also be easy to miss if you are not careful.

It is quite easy to miss Laem Singh, the only indication of the entrances are small signs on the road between Kamala and Surin. Both entrances to the beach have car parks, for which there is sometimes a small charge. If you don’t fancy the steep walk down, head for the second car park on the road coming from Kamala heading north. The path here is longer but not as steep.

Laem Singh beach is located a few minutes drive north of Kamala in a small curving bay at the foot of forest-fringed cliffs. There is no accommodation here and not much other development except a few restaurants.

Because the beach can only be accessed by a walk down a steep path, Laem Singh has a more private feel than many of Phuket’s other beaches. Nevertheless it can get quite busy on the weekends with plenty of sunbeds as its one of the most beautiful spots on the island.

Activities

Laem Singh really is a gorgeous beach and the sea here is lovely. The southern part has some nice coral which is worth exploring with some snorkel gear. This can be rented from one of the shops on the beach. There are usually some sea kayaks for rent or you could also go water-skiing for some faster thrills.

Tips
  1. ,

    This is a great place to escape the crowded beach in Patong on weekdays. Once you manage the steep trek down to the beach there is a restaurant/shack that provides chairs and the best deep fried freshly caught fish and garlic. We ended up ordering 2 more along with cold Chang beer. One of our best days in Phuket by far.
