PHUKET:-- Surin Beach has been closed to swimmers in the current weather as the beach has no lifeguards and the strong waves and flash rips are considered too dangerous to risk tourists entering the water, Chief of the Cherng Talay Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor), MaAnn Samran, told The Phuket News today (July 19).
 

“We have posted red flags along the entire length of Surin Beach. They will remain there until we have real lifeguards on duty,” Mr MaAnn said.

 

“The red flags have been posted because I want to warn tourists to please not go into water at this time. I don’t want to use the words ‘beach closed’, but the red flags are a warning meaning that it is dangerous.
