Surin Beach is situated on the west coast of Phuket island at the end of Sri Sunthorn Rd., A curving bay beneath the foothills on the north of Kamala and bordering on a hillside, Surin Beach has a powdery white sand beach but the precipitous incline means powerful surf, a treacherous undertow and turbulent water, including huge waves. The beach is not suitable for swimming or any water sports during the rainy season.
The beach is another not-to-be-missed spot for witnessing the brilliant sunsets of Phuket.
Two of Phuket's most luxurious resorts are located at the northern end of the bay, where the well heeled can spend several hundred dollars per night for a room, or up to several thousand dollars per night for a private seaside villa. More reasonably priced accommodations can be found at the southern end of the bay.
