Surin Beach, Phuket

Surin Beach offers a pristine golden-sand beach that is perfect for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking during the high season from November to April.

Known as ‘Millionaires Row’ due to the many luxury resorts based there, as well as million dollar homes that sit atop hills overlooking the Andaman Sea.

Good snorkeling can be found among the rocks at the north and south ends of the beach; equipment can be rented on the beach.

Boogie boarding and surfing are popular in the low season from May to October. Surin is also home to Thailand's second-oldest golf course.

With the best selection of food available of all the beaches in Phuket, Surin Beach is especially popular with Thais. Choose from a range of restaurants and bars that line the beach.

Alternatively, be adventurous and head to the food stalls selling everything from spicy Thai dishes to tropical fruits to drinks. These can be found in the car park at the main access to the beach.

Note: There are no public toilets at Surin Beach, however toilets can be found inside the restaurant that line most of the beach.
