Personal Experience:
My visit to Pansea Beach during the COVID closure was surreal. Being alone on one of Phuket’s most beautiful beaches was an unforgettable experience. The impeccable maintenance by the luxury resorts, Amanpuri and The Surin, behind the beach ensures a spotless and serene environment. The sand is raked daily, and any garbage is promptly removed, unlike many other beaches.

Take a leisurely walk along the pristine shoreline, feeling the soft sand under your feet and listening to the gentle waves. Capture stunning photographs of the untouched landscape, with the beach offering a perfect backdrop. While facilities are limited, Pansea Beach is part of the luxurious Amanpuri and The Surin Phuket resorts, where guests can enjoy high-end amenities, including beachside dining and spa services.
