Top 5 surf beaches in Phuket: Unleash your inner surfer on vacation

When, Where, and What you should know about surfing in Phuket.

Phuket, Thailand’s “Pearl of the Andaman,” isn’t just about pristine beaches and turquoise waters. Beneath the idyllic surface lies a thrilling secret for adrenaline seekers. While the island caters to sunbathers year-round, surfing in Phuket flourishes during the southwest monsoon season, roughly from May to October.

So… Where are the best surfing spots in Thailand? Phuket’s beauty lies in its diversity. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out, you can find the perfect wave to conquer in the diverse Phuket surfing spots.

Best Locations For Surfing:

  • Kata (Yai) Beach offers a fantastic opportunity for surfing enthusiasts. You can hire experienced teachers and take lessons at hourly rates to kick-start your surfing experience. The beach boasts a long stretch of pristine white sand, and during the Monsoon season, waves roll in, ranging from 1 meter to 2 meters in height. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced surfer, there are rental equipment options available, as well as a surfhouse for practice. Conveniently accessible via a free shuttle service or a short walk from Metadee Concept Hotel, a great pool access hotel perfect for swimming practice before hitting the ocean. Kata faces the west of the island and produces one of the most scenic and beautiful sunset surf experiences.

  • Kata Noi Beach: This popular tourist destination transforms into a surfer’s paradise during the monsoon season. Located south of Kata (Yai) Beach, Kata Noi Beach offers consistent waves and a more relaxed atmosphere. It’s a secluded and private spot with fewer people on the beach. However, due to the curvature of the coast, waves can sometimes miss this shoreline, but the allure of privacy still prevails.
  • Surin Beach: Located on Phuket’s west coast, Surin Beach boasts long, rolling waves ideal for intermediate and advanced surfers. This is one of the beaches with the heaviest waves in Phuket, offering a great surfing challenge for the seasoned riders.
  • Kalim Beach: For experienced surfers seeking another challenge, Kalim Beach—also known as “Surin Beach 2”—offers powerful waves and an intense surfing experience. The sandy coast stretches for 100 meters, with waves reaching up to 3 meters in height. 🌊 However, it is advised to go during high tides, as the shore can be rocky and more dangerous for the inexperienced.

  • Nai Harn Beach: Nestled in the southern part of Phuket, Nai Harn Beach is a hidden gem for surfers. The sheltered bay offers calmer waves, making it ideal for beginners and longboarders. With gentle swells, the beach has two distinct sides—one rocky and the other a soft sand bank
