This upscale resort plays host to the international celebrity set who don’t mind paying the ultra-high prices charged for privacy. Pansea Beach seems to be an exception to the law in Thailand that all beaches are public, because these hotels are allowed to run off outsiders. Even so, you can access this beach if you keep a low profile.
The beach itself has some nice sand banks at times and there have been some classic surf days. The northern headland offers a nice coral reef break, for experienced surfers only. The take-off spot is about 100 metres out, alongside a large rock. The wave seems to build and get faster towards the corner and then closes out on bare reef, so beware! This place breaks best on low to mid tide, so that the take-off rock is exposed. It also needs a swell of between 1 to 1.5 metres.
