Discover Sing Beach - Phuket
Before the Internet, Laem Singh Beach was a hidden gem. Nowadays, tourists flock to this small yet stunning beach. Despite the increase in tourism, the beach is always worth a look, with its sugar-fine sand and the seabed is great for a swim. The private, hidden feeling of the beach is due to the beach being surrounded by dense, thick jungle.
You can head up to the northern part of the beach for body boarding, swimming and snorkeling. You can also feed the fish some leftover bread from your lunch. Even just a few crumbs can get you hundreds of fish surrounding you. Other activities include inflatable rafts and body boards for rent, and if you can go during peak season, you can find banana oats, jetskis and waterskiing being offered. You can even get your picture taken with an iguana. While you’re there, don’t forget to have a deeply relaxing Thai massage.
Many people have dreamt of swimming with the dolphins, but only few can actually achieve it. Once you’ve had your fill of the ocean, check out Oasis Sea World, where you can swim and ride with the dolphins and watch them do tricks. Laem Singh Beach offers no immediate hotel accommodations but there are hotel options available at Surin beach. The best time to go to the beach is around summertime, or during Thailand’s peak season, which is from December to March. But if you desire fewer crowds, try to visit from November to April.
Laem Singh Beach lies in between the Surin and Kamala beach. Look for the two parking lots on top of a hill, and from there follow the signs along the road to get to Laem Singh Beach. To get to Oasis Sea World from Laem Singh, follow the road for 15 kilometers before making a right turn. You’ll know you’ve gone in the right direction when you see a police station to your right. From there, you can see signs that will direct you towards the dolphin park. Oasis Sea World is open from Monday to Sunday, 9:00am to 5:00pm.
