Laem Sing Beach

Phuket Beaches - West


An outstandingly beautiful beach, where waves crash against huge granite rocks and the compact beach is popular with expats. The only damper on the whole scene is an unexplainable and inescapable parking fee up on the main road, the first at any beach on Phuket.

In 1685, king Narai confirmed the French tin monopoly in Phuket to a French ambassador, the Chevalier de Chaumont. Chaumont's former matre d'htel Sieur de Billy was named governor of the island.
