Surfing at Kalim Beach

Surfing at Kalim Beach

One of the highlights of Kalim Beach is its excellent surfing conditions. Unlike the calmer waters of other nearby beaches, Kalim boasts impressive waves that attract surfers from near and far. The beach is particularly popular during the monsoon season, from May to October when the waves are most active. If you time your trip right, you may even be able to witness one of the local surf competitions.

Due to the rocky shores and tides, surfing here is only recommended for those with considerable experience. If you’re new to the sport or still learning, the nearby beach of Kamala also offers surfing from May – October and has waves that are more suitable for beginners.

Kalim Beach unfolds its true colors as the sun sets, transforming into a culinary paradise. A multitude of vendors line up by the shoreline, offering a vast array of authentic Thai delicacies. From the fiery som tam (papaya salad) to juicy grilled seafood, your taste buds are in for a treat.

The street food is a delicious yet affordable combo, perfect for travelers on a budget. Don’t miss out on the local favorite, Pad Thai, and pair it with a cooling coconut shake.
