Surin Beach Phuket

Surin Beach Phuket is a popular tourist destination.

Located just 20 kilometres from the Phuket International airport, nestled between Laem Singh and Pansea Beaches on the West Coast of Phuket.

With crystal clear water and beautiful white sand which stretches for almost a kilometre, and the spectacular views are what makes Surin Beach a popular travel destination.


Surin Beach in Phuket


The area around Surin is also one of the best beaches in Thailand not only for tourists but for many local Thai's and expats as well.

Surin is also known as "millionaires row", attracting the rich and famous that choose to stay in the top-end celebrity resorts at Pansea Beach at the northern end of Surin Beach.

The ultra exclusive Amanpuri Resort and the Surin Phuket hotel both share this exclusive private cove.

As well as these luxury resorts, you will find a range of million dollar homes that sit on top of the hills with stunning ocean views.



Although Surin Beach Phuket is very popular with tourists, it is still not as busy as Patong.

Prior to the beach clean ups imposed by the military, Surin Beach Phuket was once lined with a fantastic selection of restaurants, cafes and beach clubs.

These days you won't find any commercial premises on the sand at Surin.


Surin Beach Activities

There is a good range of beach activities available at Surin.

Snorkelling is good from October through to April around both the headlands.

Kayaking is a great way to see the exclusive Pansea Beach or a little bit further south is Laem Sing Beach.

If your visiting Surin Beach in the high season, you will still see the occasional speedboat and jet-ski's.

Surin Beach can be quiet dangerous during the monsoon season, so if you see a red flag along the beach, it means that the beach is closed.

Surfing at Surin Beach Phuket can be good from May to October, at either the southern or northern headlands, it is best to avoid the middle as it is rocky.

You can rent surfboards and boggie boards from the surf shop which is located on the main road.


Hotels & Resorts at Surin Beach

Some of the best luxury accommodation can be found around Surin Beach Phuket.

Surin is one of the prime locations in Phuket to invest into the real estate market.

Many new villas are being constructed with excellent views overlooking the beach.

For those who are looking to buy or rent an apartment, Surin Beach is a great location and much more laid back then the other resort areas in Phuket.



Nightlife at Surin

Prior to the clean up, Surin was fast becoming the new nightlife hotspot in Phuket, with trendy beach clubs and restaurants.

These days it is much quieter.

Catch Beach Club was definitely one of the best beach clubs to visit at Surin. The Club was located on the beachfront across the road from the Twinpalms Resort, but was removed during the beach clean up.

The good news is that Catch will be back, but not at Surin. Catch Beach Club is set to re-open at Bangtao Beach.  


Restaurants at Surin

Whilst all the eateries are now gone from the beachfront there is still an ample supply of restaurants near Surin Beach to choose from.

Below are a few suggestions:

Taste Bar & Grill is located at Cherngtalay about 4 kilometres from Surin Beach. The restaurant is open from 12 noon to Midnight.

Oriental Spoon Grill & Bar can be found within the grounds of the Twinpalms Resort,  the restaurant is open for breakfast & Dinner.

Bocconcino Italian Bakery is located opposite Surin Plaza. Open from 9.00am till 10.00pm daily, except for Sunday as they close at 6.00pm.



Attractions At Surin

Located just behind the beach is a park that was once home to Phuket's first golf club. A nine hole course which was built during the reign of King Prajadhipok Rama VII.

Today the parkland can be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. You will also find a temple which is called Wat Surin.


Wat Surin is located just back from Surin Beach.


Shopping At Surin

Surin is not known as a great shopping destination but there are some interesting places to stop in at if you're in the area.

The Plaza Surin is one of the more upmarket shopping centres on Phuket. Located on the main road between Bang Tao and Kamala Beaches, the Plaza Surin is set on two levels with a dozen or so stores including fashion, art, décor and dining.

There is also some nice shops with good quality items near the beach itself. Along the beach Road at Surin near the entrance to the Chedi there are some good shops such as tailors, galleries, souvenir and handicraft shops as well as women’s clothing boutiques.

The boutiques at Chedi and the TwinPalms Resort are also worth a visit.

More affordable shopping is at the local weekend markets in villages near Surin Beach Phuket.
