  • Really terrible road that goes there, all canals and holes, kinda offroad for cross motor or jeep, barely impossible to come with 125 motor with 2 people on it, with high risk of damaging bike. Then, ...  more »
  • N is not sport it was a great moment for me... it is better to have a motorcycle insurance if vs vs go this way, terrible and dangerous way! Awkward moment, very long before arrive! Great disappointment on the spot because the restaurant is expensive, 100bt paid and more on-site, filled with boat to plunge it and.. .not from Beach! Except accessible... paid swimming too! A lovely view... but when you look back and its 391marches, it is difficult to get relax!

  • Bike is very difficult to reach. It is a very long and stretches journey quite difficult, unpaved, with very damaged dirt roads where it is difficult to control the bike. In my case, I was only on the bike, but I saw some people who were two the bike with some difficulties. When have you arrived at last after much much long. You have to go down some stairs to gain access to the beach. In concrete a 388 steps, with some very steep sections, and some progress steps. The problem is not down them but to upload it when you play back ;) When you take a 25% down stairs appears a Lord to charge 100THB. To get down, you've realized that you can not do anything, you're inside a hotel has no access to the beach. Fact or idea how I none of those who were there had come to the beach if it wasn't by sea or climbing some rocks. In summary: If you're going to go on a motorcycle do this only if you control much the bike and you like to walk along difficult paths. I enjoyed more than the Bay itself. But if your idea is going to spend the day diving by boat.

  • Great dive spot, especially for newbies. Can get pretty busy. If you come in on a boat, head up the stairs for awesome views...you may need to buy a drink for 100 baht but it's worth it.
  • Very beautiful but again overpriced for 100 baht entry per person.
  • Really nice for diving. Good for inexperienced divers.
  • One of the best snorkeling spot
  • Beautiful bay. Mostly nice for snorkeling
