Beach description

Surin is less than a kilometer in length; water. Wide, but in season tightly lined with sun beds under umbrellas, up to five rows, they do not add space to the beach. The ebb and flow is not so clearly expressed, as in nearby Bang Tao, the water does not go to tens of meters.

The sand is fine, light, yellow or almost white, depending on lighting. There is no silt, the water is clear, the color is very beautiful, azure. In combination with white umbrellas and their ruffles fluttering in the wind, creates a festive atmosphere.

During the season, cleaners with panicles always stand on the beach and stand trash bins. Neat and clean.
