Laem Sing Beach - private, but crowded (closed)

Laem Sing Beach is a small, cozy beach, located in a small bay near the western part of Phuket Island between the beaches. Kamala and Surin. Also sometimes there is a transcription of Laem Singh, which in principle is almost the same, the difference is in one letter.

The total length of the beach is about 300meters, but due to palm trees and large stones scattering close to the shore, the beach area is limited to only 150 meters. The water in the bay is clear, poured over a gentle shore with snow-white foam. The sand is fine and soft, it is a pleasure to walk on it.

Beach description

Natural cove surrounded by palm trees and forestit creates the feeling that Laem Sing is another quiet secret beach in Phuket and in the low season this feeling is fully justified, since there is practically no one on the beach, but in the winter everything changes.

By the density of tourists Laem Singe can compete with the famous Patongom. There are even sun beds in 3 - 4 rows and the fact that there is no direct access to the beach does not prevent people from honoring Laem Sing with their presence.

Sunset, depth and waves

Sunset in the water is very gentle and in the left half is replete with pitfalls. But on the right side of the beach, the first ten to fifteen meters will be only from clean sand.

Depth does not increase sharply, but the waves here occur regularly. In case anyone is interested in reading about other places, I have a short overview of all Phuket beacheswill help you decide on the choice of the beach.

Sun beds and shade

Sun beds with umbrellas cost 100 baht per day. Most of them belong to local restaurants, where they are surprisingly well prepared dishes of Italian cuisine. Shadows are many, but it is far from water, although most vacationers prefer to rent sun beds with umbrellas and are unlikely to allow you to sit here savage.

There are a lot of massage parlors (services will cost you about 300 baht), cafes and water sports, including: snorkeling (in the southern rocky part of the beach), rental of pleasure boats, bananas or kayaks, water skiing and boats (in the northern part of the beach). Everywhere tourists are welcomed with warmth and a smile on the face of Thais.

From November to May at Laem Sing passesweekly party in one of the bars. DJs from various countries, as well as local musicians often play to the delight of the public. The atmosphere there has to coziness and good pastime. Some stars of world show business attended this party.

From amenities, the beach boasts a rural showerat the active recreation area (a hose with water attached to a long pole). The toilet can be found in any restaurant where the service itself is relatively inexpensive.

Houses and hotels on the beach

Finding accommodation on this beach is almost impossible, but the proximity of the residential area nearby Surin right to the choice of the hotel there is practicallyfor every taste. After all, from Surin to Laem Sing beach just a few hundred meters, it is quite possible to walk on foot, admiring the beautiful nature of Phuket. The only thing will have to go uphill and in the heat.

From the direction of Surin, the closest to the beach is Laem Sing; five star hotels Ayara Hilltops

How to find the beach

There is no direct road to Laem Sing Beach. A hundred meters from it passes the main road (goes on a mountain, therefore, much higher than sea level), connecting Kamalu and Surin.

From it comes down the north and south of the beach Laem Sing),ending parking lots. For a motorbike there they will take from 20 baht, for a car from 40 baht per day of parking. From the parking lot down to the shore, there is a long staircase, and it is exhausting to walk along the promenade, especially for older people.

In high season, parking on the highway is hard,especially by car, there is simply no place to put, parking is busy Alternatively, you can get up near the observation deck, before reaching the parking lot (if you drive from Surin), or near the garbage dump (it, on the contrary, is a little further away from the parking lot), or a little further, there is space on the side of the road. But during the peak season, most likely it will be occupied everywhere.

From Surin You can walk, if not straining uphill. From Kamaly only on the bike, for far away.
