Pansea Beach spans almost 400 metres in length along the west coast of Phuket. Located just north of the beautiful Surin Beach, this sandy expanse is separated from Surin by a small rocky cape. The beach is fringed by coconut trees and many exotic trees and plants. Both ends offer top-notch snorkelling opportunities during the day, while its entire length makes for a relaxing sundowner spot in the evenings. 

    Good to know about Pansea Beach

    Pansea is generally assumed to be the private beach of The Surin Phuket and Amanpuri Phuket (which respectively occupy 80% and 20% of the beachfront). Privatisation of the coastline is illegal in Thailand, so the beach is free for public use. 

    This assumption, combined with the fact that you can only enter the beach via The Surin Phuket, means that Pansea Beach is significantly quieter than Surin Beach.

     Highlights of Pansea Beach in Phuket

    The Surin Phuket and Amanpuri Phuket offer plenty of beach bars, sun loungers with umbrellas, and watersports facilities. You can also find a few local businesses on Pansea Beach. Towards the southern end of the beach, there's a small shack serving reasonably-priced drinks and fruits, as well as inflatable rubber rings and airbeds for hire. 

    In front of The Surin Phuket’s Beach Studio Suites, a group of local masseuses offer traditional massages right on the beach. Right between the resorts, you can rent jet skis to explore the ocean.

    Pansea Beach is a secluded expanse in Phuket. One of the best way to fully enjoy this lovely strip of sand is by booking a stay at one of its many beach resorts.
