A kilometre north of Laem Sing Beach is the popular Surin Beach. The middle of the beach used to have about a dozen Thai beach-style mini restaurants serving seafood. There were also some major developments along the boardwalk esplanade. These have now been removed and Surin Beach is now back to its' pristine state of 20 years ago and the layed back atmosphere that Surin beach is famous for.

Now rated number 46 of the 50 top surf spots in the world by CNN Travel.

Surin Beach is regarded as one of the more heavier waves in Phuket and surfing here when it is big, can be a real challenge. On better days, the waves barrell and get quite fast.

Surin beach offers some good surfing opportunities at both ends of the beach. There are good waves on the high tide when the swells are big, or on small swells on low-mid tide.

Beware of a group of large rocks, which are located in the middle of the beach. Most days they are visible. The last rock at the northern end can create a great sand bank with a fast left hander.

Right in front of the Surin Beach car park there are also some nice banks that break on mid tide. Best in smaller swells, but overhead waves are still makeable on a higher tide. Take care as Surin beach has strong currents.


You can still find many lower priced surin beach guesthouses and hotels to stay at in the area, or if you want something a bit more up market there are hotels at Surin beach that will cater to your needs.
