I really beautiful beach for swimming and has good dining and with the tropical trees and great beach facing west gives you plenty to photography. Located Phuket Island Thailand MAP. Thai government have just forced the beach bars that were on the actual beach to move off which gives more beach and sand area under the tropical trees. Still plenty of great places to eat and drink and relax. I like the evening with the sunsetting and taking people enjoy live and use a slow shutter and tripod. For a great source of info for Phuket Thailand I recommend Phuket 101 written by Willy Thuan. To see my Fine Art Collection of Surin Beach. There is an up market beach bare that has beautiful area under the trees and nice music but is little pricey Catch Beach Club Up date after new ruling of Thai Government on beach encroachment. Many changes here but still a nice beach. No chairs, no bars/cafe on the beach but still plenty of places next to the beach. I have left previous photos of the beach but when visiting remember new changes.
