Laem Ka Noi Beach Phuket

Laem Ka Noi Beach

Located about 450 meters (492 yd.) from Laem Ka Yai Beach is the little sister, Laem Ka Noi Beach. This is a short beach facing northeast that is a nice getaway from people because nobody knows about it. Laem Ka Noi Beach faces east and gets nice sunrises if you happen to be here early.Very few websites have this beach on a map. Google has it, and you can find it too.

Laem Ka Noi Beach is quite small at about 66 meters in length, and not very wide – only 20 meters (22 yards) at its widest point. The water is usually calm, and it’s fine for swimming or wading, but there are some submerged rocks to be aware of. There are no annoying jet skis or parasailing here. Laem Ka Noi Beach is great for a short nap or stopping by for a meal. You can walk on the big rocks for something to do, but there’s not much to do.

There is a small restaurant at Laem Ka Noi called, what else? Laem Ka Noi Seafood. Traditional, tasty Thai seafood is what you’ll find at the restaurant, with picture-perfect views over the beach and of the nearby island, Koh Lon.

If you’re already at Laem Ka Yai Beach, you could just take a longtail boat 600 meters (656 yards) up the beach to reach Laem Ka Noi Beach.

Or, you can drive there by going south on Highway 4024 (Wiset Road) and making a left at Soi Lamkanoi. There’s a chance you’re going to run into a closed gate there, so it’s always best when trying to reach small Phuket beaches, to just go by longtail boat. A whole lot more fun than driving in Phuket’s traffic too!
