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.
On both sides of the Surin beach separated the green hills (capes), near which there are stones, sometimes large boulders, around which you can snorkel.
The beach itself is small, in length about 1 kilometer, but it is quite wide and sandy. The sand is fine and pleasant to the touch, yellow-white color, depending on what angle and in what weather to look at him.
On the beach is quite clean. The beach is beautified and landscaped. In search of shadows you can hire a sun lounger, in the form of mats and umbrella from the sun. The price for two sunbeds and an umbrella costs 200 baht/day. Or, find a natural shade that comes from trees growing on the perimeter of the beach.
The entrance to the shallow sea, sandy bottom, depth does not occur immediately. The presence of waves depends on the weather, big waves, the bottom is uneven, in small pits.
From beach-water sports: you can ride a banana boat or jet ski. Relax under the nimble hands of Thai ladies offering massage on the beach.
Of the benefits of beach Surin beach - along the beach does not pass road.
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).
Infrastructure near Surin beach
In the shade crowns of trees and palms, along the line of yarn, is something like the waterfront. Here you can escape from the heat, to walk and to eat. Along the promenade you can see a lot makashnits.
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.
Around the middle of the beach, the promenade and the road leading from the beach to the road is a small Thai Temple.
Behind the temple, along the beach, quite a large piece of empty space.
To the right of the temple is a cluster of exit of outlets, tables for eating and places to Park. Although currently Park on the waterfront.
Behind the temple if you follow the road which goes only bus Phuket Town Bang Tao Surin Kamala, you can see the stadium
Here, almost immediately behind the stadium, Soi Hat Surin 8 rests on the track and goes to the left. On the street are a few hotels and cafes and stores "7-Eleven" and "FamilyMart".
About 600 metres from the beach, on the main road towards Bang Tao, located the Plaza Surin. There are cafes, retail outlets, hotels, shops, ATMs, exchange offices and a supermarket "Tesco express".
Currently, in many places Surin are repairs, reconstruction. Build something, upgrade. See it, like on the waterfront, also near the temple and on the roads. Soon on Surin that will change, he will change and will sparkle with new colors, and the promenade will again see a cute cafe with beach views and sea breeze from which will emanate the music. And then, we will see a new Surin and maybe the beach will occupy one of the first places in the list of the best beaches in Phuket.
