1st Time in Surin Beach

Surin Beach Guide

Surin Beach is a cool and sophisticated place to relax on fine white sand, with a glittering blue sea stretching out before you. Its calm, clear waters are great for snorkelling and kayaking while boogie boarding and surfing are also popular activities on the 1km-long beach. With lively beach clubs at either end, it is a great place for a chilled-out afternoon, a stunning sunset, and a fun evening.

You will find Surin Beach along Millionaire’s Row on Phuket’s west coast, surrounded by boutique shops, high-end resorts and the residences of the rich and famous. That does not mean that it is exclusively for the use of those with money to burn however. During the high season, it is one of the island’s busier places, popular with tourists and locals alike. It is even popular throughout the low season, though the strong currents that come at this time mean that swimmers should be very careful.

Surin Beach Facilities

The access road that takes you from the main coast road to the beach itself has a choice of ATMs at the road end. Hawker stalls and wandering vendors can generally be found selling fruit, snacks and drinks on the road running right alongside the sand, especially around the car park at the beach end of the main access road. Additionally, there are convenience stores and a choice of high-end restaurants in town, just a few minutes from the beach.

Surin Beach Watersports

Due to the lack of a launch area, speedboats are rare along Surin beach - a fact which pleases many of its patrons. Even in high season, jet skis are quite rare here.

Kayaks can be hired and are particularly popular on the exclusive Pansea Beach a short distance away, which is only accessible through the hotels there or via the sea. Laem Singh Beach is a little further, but within reach if kayaking.

In the low season (May - October), boogie boarding and surfing are popular. Due to rocks and the nature of the waves, surfing is best left to the who know what they're doing. Beginners should check out the northern end of Kamala Beach for more favourable conditions. Surin offers some good surfing opportunities at both ends of the beach. There are good waves on the high tide or on the low-mid tide. Watch out for the group of large rocks in the middle of the beach. The last rock at the northern end results in a sandbank with a fast left-hander.

Surin Beach Activities

In high season, the water at Surin Beach is exceptionally clear and some good snorkelling sites can be found by the rocks at the north and south ends of the beach. Equipment can be rented on the beach easily. In low season, the water is not clear and the waves make snorkelling very difficult.
