Laem Singh Beach on Phuket
Laem Singh Beach between
Kamala and Surin Beaches
Unless you are driving around Phuket a bit, you’ll not be aware of Laem Singh Beach (Lion Point, or Cape Lion is the literal translation). Though it is not so “hidden” anymore, the only real clue is a crowd of cars and motorcycles parked off the side of the road between Surin and Kamala Beaches.
Through the trees you’ll catch a glimpse of this beautiful beach. Be prepared for a small hike down the bluff, about five minutes of huffing and puffing to get out, but it’s worth it!
Laem Singh Beach There are usually five or six beach shack restaurants along this beach, they come and go – more in high season, fewer in low season. The climb down will help build an appetite.
From the southern tip of this beach you can see the Kamala headland and if you clamber out on the rocks on the northern end you can even catch a glimpse of Kamala’s beaches.
Great snorkeling around both of the headlands and recently there is a “clear kayak” business on the beach where you can rent a completely clear kayak to take around the headlands so you can see the coral and fish.
The parking by the road is a bit crowded during high season, and a small shack there at times collects a fee for parking.
You’ll find Laem Singh Beach between Surin Beach and Kamala Beach. The parking area is about halfway between Surin Beach and Kamala. You’ll see cars and lots of motorcycles parked on the side of the road and a semi-steep path heading down the side of the bluff. You really can’t miss it with all the cars and motobikes parked about.
