  • Beautiful beach, it is one of my favorite beach in Phuket, not as busy and so crowded compared with Patong Beach. It is good for surfing in summer and there are lifeguards around the swimming area, just keep looking at the flags, if it’s red, don’t go in, the current changes without you noticing it so it is best to stay safe. There's a nice beach club at the end of the beach. The water is very blue and clean.
  • Water is not cold, waves are not too strong and sand has no rocks or animals, making it perfect to swim and enjoy. For 200 baht you can have a comfortable seat in the shadows. In the rain season it was not too crowded.
  • Nice beach. Possibility of renting 2 beachchairs und 1 umbrella for Baht 200 a day. Also poosible to get food and drinks like sodas, juices etc. Sometimes same people passes by the chair which try to sell you something, but if you say no, normally they go away without any problems. We liked it there
  • Beautiful and clean beach. White sand. Low bepth and crystal water.
  • Clean, good sand and clear water but lacks facilities (changing rooms, hoses to clean sand, etc.)
