Surin beach (Surin Beach) is one of the beaches in Phuket, located in the Central part of the island on the West coast of the Andaman sea of the Indian ocean, between the beaches of Bang Tao and Kamala.

Many call this beach a fabulous place and the best beach of Phuket. Ambiguous statement is the beach of course good, but, something special and attractive, we did not notice it. Rather, it is one of those beaches in Phuket with no charm, which cause emotions and not remembered anything of that kind (good or bad).

Once, this place was located cafes and restaurants overlooking the sea and the beach, where you could sit and eat, and in the evening played music and was full of life. At the same time, they are dismantled, and the embankment was almost deserted. Maybe it is for this reason, the beach became less crowded, more quiet and peaceful.
