Surin Beach

Surin Beach is almost a kilometer long. The beach is a wide stretch of fine, golden sand. The surrounding area is quiet but has some nice hotels and a few trendy little bars and restaurants.

It is a good bathing beach although when the tide is in it can slope a little steeply into the sea making it a little hazardous for children. There are a few rocks in the sea that just break the surface. They can be fun for diving off but they can also be sharp if you slip so be careful on them.

There is some pleasant snorkeling around both headlands but nothing spectacular.

There are sun loungers spread along the beach. They cost 100 baht each. Generally, there is not much water sport activity but the jet-ski renters occasionally come round to work the beach.

Casuarina trees line the beach. Under them are some beachside restaurants and souvenir shops. Set further back is a road parallel to the beach that has a few guesthouses, hotels and restaurants.

During the rainy season, this beach has especially treacherous undercurrents.

How to Get There

This is one of the major beaches and is easy to find. From Kamala, drive north along the coast road, pass Laem Sing and you quickly come to the left hand turn to Surin Beach.


There are some nice hotels here and if you go a bit further back, you will also find budget accommodation.
