  • Rawai is a beautiful place, restaurants and nice bars on the sea... but this isn't really a beach! Rather a long dock, and small fishing boats who find themselves on the sand at low tide.

  • Actually we didn't come for the beach, but to see Rawai overall I recommend you visit in the evening when the tide plays with the lights of sunset and boats docked fishermen line up one behind the other in the evening on the beach remain enormous broken shells (perhaps what remains from fishermen's nets) country origin of the famous "Gypsies", is giving way to modernization, but remains for many the most famous ritual of haggling on the one hand, the price of fish, exposed on stalls ... then have it cook low-priced restaurants seats lined up on the opposite side to the stalls. A word of advice: avoid the morning hours; haggle the price down to the 17-18 of the afternoon, when the evening approaches and the fish, therefore, is not just cool fished. You will get a cheaper price!

Where to stay in Rawai

A long-established beach resort, Rawai offers eclectic sleeping options along the eastern coast of the peninsula. Head right up to the beach for attractively designed resort hotels, rental condominiums, and spa hotels, charging relatively high prices for their extensive views and easy access to beaches and boat tours. Away from the coastline you can find similar resort-style accommodations, with lower prices and a little more privacy. Other budget-friendly options include rental bungalows and basic hotels.
