“Want to keep this a secret but too good not to share! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

I was debating whether or not to actually post s review because when you find something you really love you kinda want to keep it secret!

We usually stay in Patong and either ride here (plenty of parking for bikes) or take a Tuk Tuk (of you take a Tuk Tuk, arrange for them to pick you up at a certain time as after about 3.30pm no driver will want to take you back to Patong dur to traffic). There are one or two hotels here but you will pay through the nose.

Ok so for 150THB you hey a chair with an umbrella (BYO towel). The guys come around and wipe the sand off your chair and everything. We always go for the white umbrella black beds (we like these guys). Never had a problem with theft in the 5 years we've been coming here.

This time of year the water is crystal clear and mild temperature - perfect for cooling off. The sand is soft and clean. Jet ski hire is available for around 1500THB for 30mins.

There are heaps of little food stalls so you can easily spend a whole day here. You will pay about 60THB for a fruit shake, 50THB for a cob of bbq corn or bbq chicken skewer (yum!).

“Once a secret now a must do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

We have been coming to Surin beach now for many years, each year more and more day trippers heading out of Patong and alike for a quite place away from the madness have found Surin and it's clean beach, excellent food market and restaurants, now it is over crowded and expensive, but still the best beach in Phuket, also try Banana beach a little further north past bangtao just before Nathorn, you could even go further to Maikhao where we holiday in bliss.

“seems like the best beach on Phuket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

very clean, nice clean sand, some nightlife around but not too loud and crowded.
This one looks way better then other beaches around - wooden beds, fantastic fireshow at Catch.

“Clean and Safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

A lot quieter than the other beaches and all the better for it, i wouldn't recommend leaving your valuables to go for a swim but here is safe enough, The people you hire he Sun Beds from are friendly and attentive, you never have to leave the beds except to go for a swim!

“Clean water, more quite and expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Surin beach, is the best beach on Phuket, among the tourist ones (Kata, Kata Noi, Patong, Nai Harn etc.) The water is very clear, only a little garbage, and more quite - which I found lovely. The beach has sun chairs to 100 THB like anywhere else, but that is the cheapest you can find there. Surin is very expensive, and a small water that usually cost about 10 THB, cost 40 THB, and food is very expensive here too. Surin beach is definitely worth a visit.
