  • Our worst Beach in Thailand! Good point: the road is paved all the way. We arrived late on the spot, at 5 pm. Despite this, the young teenager responsible for the entry would not know: 100 baht per person not negotiable. Once the toll past: gravel as sand, deckchairs, broken, and above all, dsign waste! The beach looks more like a landfill, hard to find a place for his briefcase without bottle, sandals, toothpaste, buoy, Cap, syringe, plastic bag... yet a sign reminds us not to throw our waste... Ditto in the water, people came out of plastic bags stuck to the face. We turned back after 10 min, and found the teenager of the entrance with her mother counting his loot... sad smile. Damage, the Bay is beautiful, but became a scam in tourist not maintained. Advice: run, don't waste valuable time in this beautiful country for this beach!

  • After the rather negative reviews lately we have already set us anyway to see the beach. We were not disappointed. Yes it costs 100 baht per person, but it has lots of sun beds with shade and gets a cold beverage of your choice. Here and there was some rubbish, but let's face it, Germany is often worse. Much is just washed up by the sea. And if each disposed of his own dirt (there are trash bins), it is perhaps better. It's me on the water and it was great. Nice high waves were fine sand, as we here. Snorkeling to the sides of the Bay. You must only slightly further out. We were even lucky to get two reef sharks to face. Right and left side of the beach there are restaurants. We were great views and good, relatively cheap food in the right hand. We would come back!
