General Information of Surin Beach

Surin Beach is another beautiful beach in Phuket, located between Kamala Beach and Bang Tao Beach. Surin Beach is a 1-kilometer-long golden sand beach famous for its clear water and beautiful rows of palm trees.

The beach once was visited by the late Rama IX in the 1950s, from which it became a playground for the rich and wealthy. One of the most popular things on Surin Beach is the abundance of sea sports, especially surfing during the monsoon season. There are also several gardens and fishing villages nearby that can be visited. In addition, it's an extremely pleasant beach with some small restaurants and bars just a short walk away.

Where to book? How long to stay?

The most convenient way to book Phuket Sandbox hotels is by using a reliable online travel agent such as Booking.com.

When applying for Thailand Pass, the confirmation of prepaid SHA Extra Plus hotel booking for at least 7 nights is needed (can be less only if you fly abroad from Phuket earlier).

According to 11 January 2022 update from Thai Embassy in Vienna, the hotel booking confirmation must be inclusive of airport pick up*. When booking your stay with Booking.com, use the special request form to request for the airport pick up and confirmation.

*Note! Despite this note on Thai Embassy website, some of our readers report that their Thailand Pass applications were successfully approved with a fully prepaid confirmation of separately booked SHA+ certified airport transfer that is cheaper than transfer arranged by the hotel.
