Surin (Surin Beach) is one of the beaches of Phuket Island, which has light sand washed by warm sea waters of a pleasant color.
Surin Beach is located in the central part of the west coast of Phuket, near the waters of the Andaman Sea of the Indian Ocean, between the beaches of Laem Sing and Kamala from the south and Bang Tao Beach from the north.
Surin is not a very popular beach in Phuket, and, accordingly, it is not as congested as the famous Karon or Kata. Surin is mainly visited by guests vacationing in neighboring hotels and local residents. Nevertheless, in the high season (from December to March), Surin can be quite crowded.
On both sides, Surin Beach is surrounded by green hills (capes) facing the sea waters. Near the hills in the water there are stones and quite large boulders, near which you can go snorkeling.
The length of Surin Beach is about 1 kilometer.
The beach is clean.
The beach has light, fine and soft sand.
In search of shade, you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas from the sun, as well as find a natural shade, which is enough near the beach, and which comes from trees growing along the perimeter of the beach strip.
The approach to the sea is gentle, the bottom is sandy, the depth comes gradually.
The presence of waves depends on the weather, on days of large waves the bottom becomes uneven, small pits may appear.
From beach and water activities, you can ride a banana or a jet ski. Also relax under the nimble hands of Thai ladies by ordering a massage right on the beach.
One of the advantages of Surin Beach is that there is no passing road along the beach.
Some guests of Phuket call Surin a fabulous place and the best beach in Phuket. An ambiguous statement, the beach, of course, is good, but without much charm.
Infrastructure near Surin beach
In the shade of the crowns of trees and palm trees, along the beach line runs something like an embankment.

Approximately in the middle of the beach, near the embankment and the road leading from the beach to the highway, there is a small temple.
There is also a stadium, shops, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and The Plaza Surin shopping center in Surin.
