Outrigger Surin Beach Resort

Surin Beach has always been a beautiful destination. It has an image of being the place to be for anyone with an affinity for luxury and as a “millionaire’s haven.”

Surin Beach is truthfully and undoubtedly one of the most beautiful locations on Earth. Situated right on a hillside that overlooks the Andaman Sea, the beach itself is a hidden paradise that has a view that goes straight out into the open and beyond the horizon. Rumor has it that several A-list movie stars have their own pieces of real estate in the area, which goes to show how luxurious Surin Beach really is.

While it may be frequented by international stars and has its own fair share of five-star resorts, make no mistake: you should never be intimidated to the point of not paying Surin Beach a visit.

Still not convinced as to why Surin Beach is one spot in the world that you should drop everything, pack your bags, and book your tickets for? Let’s go over the destination in detail:

First things first, let’s talk about the location

Perfectly set right on the west coast of Phuket, Surin Beach provides endless views of its pristine, golden-white sands and azure, crystal-clear water all year-round. The tropical haven can be found right in between Bang Tao and Kamala Beach, which are both island paradises in their own right.

Although Surin Beach is regarded as a tourist spot, it isn’t too crowded no matter what time you go—even during the dreaded summer season. Surin Beach never waivers in maintaining a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year.

The overall laid-back beach paradise that Surin Beach maintains every single day is made possible with the fact that its actual structure is more of a small village than it is a town. With friendly locals, impeccable cleanliness, and unmistakable “sleepy town” vibe, the beach itself is relaxed and exudes pure solace.

Is there anything to do at Surin Beach?

Fortunately, being calm and laid back doesn’t necessarily mean that things get boring after a few days at Surin Beach. There are several activities to do during your visit. Should you find yourself in the area for a much-needed getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, here are a few things you can do in Surin Beach:

1. Refine your culinary skills with Surin Beach’s cooking classes

Sure, Surin Beach may be generally known for its entire atmosphere as being Earth’s own Eden with its awe-inspiring displays of nature. But did you know that it houses some of Thailand’s best chefs?

With the help of Surin’s own talented and expertly trained culinary artists, you can refine your culinary skills and build your knowledge of trademark Thai cuisines with a single class. Getting to know your way around several dishes, such as Pad Thai, Green Curry, and Som Tum will take around three to five hours, depending on the content of your chosen course.

There are several places in the area that offer culinary courses for visitors of all ages, but the courses taught at the Outrigger Surin Beach Resort are rated as some of the best.

2. Bask in the crystal-clear Andaman Sea with a surf session or two

Should you find yourself in Surin Beach during the low season (May to October), then it is paramount to head over to the beach and surf some of the best waves in Thailand. When it comes to surfing in Surin Beach, there are three locations to choose from—the north, south, and midsection. For the safest experience possible, however, stick to either the north or south, as the midsection is notorious for the difficulty that it poses to even the most seasoned of surfers.

Surin Beach is a well-known destination for all the right reasons, ranging from its breathtaking nature and scenery to its homey, slow-town atmosphere. These are probably the main reasons that actors are coming from all over the world to seek refuge in this place. As much as we can go on about how amazing Surin Beach is, however, there’s nothing like coming all the way here to experience the sights, sounds, and sensations yourself.
