How to Travel to Surin Beach

There are three main methods for transportation in Phuket where Surin Beach is located, and those transportation methods are tuk-tuks, buses, and taxis/motorbike taxis. For travelers who are looking to travel to Phuket, the distance to city center from Surin Beach is about 24 kilometers and should take about 38 minutes to travel by car. While the beach area is relatively small and easy enough to walk around in, visitors may wish to opt for transportation for longer distances or to get to and from their accommodations to the beach or restaurants in the area. Many hotels and resorts can assist travelers with hiring transportation for the day, and some may even offer private shuttle services to and from the beach and other attractions. While in town, and sometimes nearby popular resorts, there should be tuk-tuks available for visitors to hire.

Renting a motor scooter

While traveling in the area, visitors may also elect to rent a scooter which can be a great value for money and a relatively easy way to get around. Travelers should be certain that they have proper travel insurance, as well as necessary licenses from their home country, prior to renting a scooter. (Often, a motorcycle license from a visitor’s home country is necessary and an international driver’s license is also recommended.) It is also advised that visitors be familiar with riding a scooter prior to renting one in the area; as traffic may not be too hectic in Surin Beach, driving in a foreign country is still a very different experience than what most expect.
