    Lamai beach was the perfect blend of excitement and relaxation. It is walking on the pedestrian street and has a beautiful beach. The beach is very long, so everyone will find its perfect place. There are very quiet sections without concern or otherwise. Allerdiengs section before there was swing bar - there beautiful chairs you were free if you eat something or drink I liked. (this includes WIFI and bath towels), little music, but not disturbing. There were also the single abgesperten with nets area in the water which protects against jellyfish. In the field, the lifeguards have also fished and times times a squid brought out a stingray - very entertaining. Water sport activities were there anywhere to get.

    Lamai, which is just from Chaweng, is lovely and much quieter here than tourists there are very few because, according to the tour guide that we made, they wanted to center the whole tourism on Chaweng, the streets here filled with shops and massage centers on sea and sp iagge very nice, quaint to watch the market that are only on Sundays, this area is perfect for a relaxing day.

    Great sandy beach with clean water. A lot of bars and restaurants along the beach - however I liked more local joints along main street (much cheaper and real Thai food). Good Thai massage stands. I've been there in September 2016.

    Not bad beach but we weren't impressed. Maybe because it was a bad weather for two whole weeks. Commercialized-you are paying for beach chairs. There were a warning for jellyfishes while we were there, so not for swimming-make sure to check that. Have a lot of restaurants on the beach.

    Hotels and even hotels everywhere. Surely not the best beach in Thailand.

    It has an error. Thai people can cook and do not make this science as the Czechs!
