Untouched beach with no water activities / trips going on. Some street vendors selling fruit shakes at 50baht (~2SGD). 1 street food restaurant along the beach. Good place to chill and hangout but not much activities for the thrill seekers.

The photos depict the old Surin beach where deck chairs and umbrellas could be had to enjoy a few drinks before enjoying a very decent seafood meal nearby. The whole beach infrastructure has been wiped from the face of the beach as if another tsunami...More

We went there one morning and intended to let the kids play sand on the beach. However it was high tide and there was not much dry areas left. But our kids did enjoy playing with water while the big waves rush to the shore....More
