If you’ve been following the news over the last several months you might have come to the conclusion that Phuket and specifically Surin Beach have basically been shut done by the new Thai government. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Surin Beach has been returned to its former splendor.
In an effort to reverse the trend of over commercialization and a return to the qualities that have made Surin Beach loved by so many, much of the clutter is now gone. Gone are the sun beds, beach mats, umbrellas and towel that covered the beach and totally obscured its natural beauty. And, gone are the annoying vendors that constantly barged in on your sense of peace and tranquility as you relaxed on the sand and in the calming surf.
Have a look at these recent photos and see Surin Beach as it awas meant to be and note that this same effort of restoration has been implemented at Catch, Bimi and Zazada. Phuket is once again a place to become immersed in natural beauty while enjoying the incredible hospitality of the local Thai population.
