Je pense que c'est le meilleur qu'il-y-a.


Explanation:
Just another way to say it. "Around" here does not mean in the vicinities, but it implies "that has come around", i.e. "that has appeared".

Je pense que c'est le mieux dans les environs.


Explanation:

Out of context, the sentence is ambiguous, because one doesn't know exaclty to which word "around" is related.

je pense que c'est le meilleur qui soit


Explanation:
This means 'I think it's the best there is', or 'the best in existence', and I'm guessing that that is what you're intending to convey.
Mieux is an adverb
Meilleur is an adjective, and most appropriate in this case.
