The 4 Most Secluded Beaches in Phuket

Monday, Jul 08, 2023 0


Let’s talk beaches in Phuket, Thailand. Most visitors are familiar with the long lines of sun beds along Patong, Kata and Karon beaches. But there’s more to Phuket’s beach culture. With an adventurous spirit, a set of wheels and a map of the island, you can discover some beach gems that will have you coming back for more. Here are four of Phuket’s best ‘secret’ beaches.


Outrigger Surin Beach Resort




Nestled between Promthep Cape lookout and the long road back to Kata beach, lies Ya Nui beach. It is really two small beaches since the sand banks form two separate arcs split by a large rock formation. You will most likely be joined by some locals, who like to fish and picnic here. Keep an eye out for the loads of vibrant fish species. Kayaks, snorkel gear and umbrellas are available for rent.




So many people rocket by this beach as they make their way into Kamala Beach from Surin Beach, it’s a crime. Head down the cliffside path and experience one of Phuket’s most beautiful beaches. The water is clean, clear and teeming with aquatic life. Found between Kamala and Surin beaches, Laem Singh is easy to find with hand-painted signs set at the roadside, where paid parking is available.


Outrigger Surin Beach Resort




A little further afield on the upper west coast after Bang Tao, Banana Beach is well worth the trip. Located a short way north of Trisara Resort, pull over when you see a hand-made sign signaling Banana Beach. You’ll find a short steep trail down to the water. Ample snorkeling opportunities and the scarcity of boat and jet-ski activity make this an ideal choice for laid-back beach connoisseurs.




Really just a continuation of Mai Khao beach, this undeveloped beach just goes and goes and goes some more. To reach Sai Keaw, you need to pass through the Phuket provincial checkpoint first, so it really does feel a world away from the hectic resort areas. While you are in the area, do check out the mangroves on the other side of the Sarasin Bridge which connects Phuket to the mainland.
