Phuket South Beaches



Our South coast section of Phuket has 10 significant beaches. It is more sheltered than the west coast and does not receive the same pounding from the rainy season seas. Therefore the beaches here tend to be sand and shingle with rocky seabeds.

Much of the seabed in this area still has a lot of sludge and mud stirred up from the old tin-mining days when the seabed was dredged extensively.

There are only two beaches at all suited to bathing. They are Laemka and Ao Yon.

The main appeal of the southern beaches are the views, walks and eating places.

There is one beach where a hotel development has blocked land access to the beach and they do not make visitors feel welcome. It is the Cape Panwa Hotel Beach.
