Certainly, one of the nicest beaches in Thailand and definitely one of our top 5 beaches on Phuket Island is Surin Beach ! Surin beach is located just up the road, so to speak, from Patong Beach, going north. In the early 2000’s Surin Beach was a top locals and long-time repeat visitor favorite. The beach is long, and the sand is deep. The water is usually clean and clear, with a ripple of waves. The atmosphere is always relaxed and there is plenty of room for visitors, it’s never crowded, and the food is always delicious.
In the past, there were food shacks just up under the trees – many of them. The military recently decided to reclaim all beach land – and knocked down all illegal structures, not only here but at all Thailand’s beaches. In a way, it was disappointing to see them go. Overall, it opens up the space here at Surin and there are still good places to eat from street food vendors who come and go each day. There is still a focus on the natural beauty of the beach, shady trees, and islands offshore. Perfect!
There are currently no beach clubs here, but the place could sure use one! With close proximity to Patong Beach’s population, a club at this beach would be a hit. The land here is public property (government owned), so building any permanent structures is prohibited at this time.
