About Travel to Khura Buri

Khura Buri is a small coastal district in Phang Nga Province located on the West Coast of Thailand to the North of Phuket and to the South of Ranong. Khura Buri Town is small, with around 12,000 permanent residents, and spread out along the Phetchkasem Road, which is the main North to South highway.

About Khura Buri Town

Khura Buri Town itself has a small number of facilities for visitors such as hotels, resorts, restaurants, shops and ATM machines. Mainland Kura Buri attracts relatively few foreign visitors despite having some great beaches, particularly Ao Khoei and Mai Ngam Beach, and a very laid back atmosphere.

Some longer stay visitors to Thailand may be attracted to area by the lack of other tourists, the cheap prices, and friendly locals. Khura Buri is a less well known coastal destination and a long way from becoming as developed as Phuket or Koh Samui.

Travel to the Surin Islands

The main reason foreign visitors come to Khura Buri, however, is to reach the Surin Islands. The pier for speed boat services to the Surin Islands is around 10 km to the North of Khura Buri Town. The journey by speed boat takes around 90 minutes and costs 1,500 to 2,000 THB each way, on top of which there is a 500 THB fee for entering the Mu Koh Surin National Park.

About the Surin Islands

There are 5 islands in the national park, only one of which, Koh Surin Neua (often referred to simply as ‘Surin Island’), has accommodation on it in the form of tents and basic bungalows. The beaches in the Surin Islands are excellent and water is very clear. The big draw of the Surin Islands are its diving and snorkelling sites. The area is protected and home to lots of seldom seen species of sea life including turtles. Divers also sometimes encounter dolphins and Bryde’s whales.
