Surin beach (Surin Beach) Phuket is on the West coast in the Central part of the island from South beach, Bang Tao beach and 15 km from Patong (Surin on the island map). From Bang Tao beach, it is separated by the Cape, and to get from one to the other along the shore impossible.
Surin beach is very tiny, only 500 metres away. Nevertheless, there has become a complete and well-developed tourist area. A few years ago this place was undeveloped and quiet beach, but the area is rapidly developing, and the old village of peace and natural beauty of the beach almost nothing left. Feature Surin is the presence of the youth party, including surfers, and a small number of families, but gradually and more transformed into a resort for package tourists.
With regard to the district's infrastructure, everything is there. Hotels a bit, prices are above average for the island. On the first line there are no hotels except for a couple slightly to the North with its coves and beaches. Small stores and shops with the most necessary is everywhere, and one shopping Mall, the Surin Plaza. Rental motorbikes and cars there, the travel Agency every step of the way. Cafes, restaurants and bars, late enough. You could even say that the night life there, but at least those who do not like to go to bed early, here's what to do.
The beach here is very good, but short walks along the shore or playing games with children is almost no space. In the high season very crowded with sunbeds, uncrowded and call it does not. The sand is very fine, almost white, soft to the touch. The sharp slope of the bottom, the depth is large. The water is clear, you can even snorkel along the edges of the beach stones. Large waves, especially during low season, so a lot of surfers. Right on the beach there are cafes, rental of surfboards, jet skis and other entertainment.
To get to Surin beach from the nearby beach of Bang Tao if you wish, you can walk. From the airport can only be reached by taxi from 1,000 baht (see currency of Thailand, the exchange rate) or to go with transfers by bus through Phuket town. From Phuket town with old bus station here runs a Shuttle taxi for 50 baht, and it is also possible to get to the neighbouring beaches of Bang Tao and Kamala. All other beaches by taxi will have to go only with a stopover in Phuket town, or tuk-tuks (up to Patong, for example, 300 baht).
Hotels on Surin is not very much, and by local standards the prices for accommodation are higher than average. Prices for a double room in high season start from 800 baht, but these options are usually busy and you need to search for and book in advance. Options for rental housing is also not many, and those that are, are very expensive. Hotels on the first line there except for two hotels in a separate Bay with its beach North of Surin. The rest of the hotels are located 200 metres or more from shore.

Summing up about the Surin. It is a small developed area and a tiny beautiful beach. Its peculiarity is the presence of a large number of young people and his party, but it quickly changes and he turns into a mediocre beach area. The prices are high, the options to embed a bit. The beach is beautiful but crowded, with big waves, suitable for surfing.
