An easy beach, with shops close by for a cold drink, lovely views and the warmest water I have ever swum in!A few vendors offering sarongs, steamed corn, and watches but the biggest surprise was a miniature lemur. His owner was letting people have a hold for 100 baht with an instant photo included. Crazy Thailand experience at your doorstep!

Lovely beach with shops all along the promenade. Lots of beach lounges with towels and parasols for hire. The area is clean and well managed and great for families with children. There is a beach gym for free and there are also abseiling and other water sports. Great relaxing day out!

Nice place but little overcrowded. Sand and sea are magnificent :) Infrastructure is not really developed but you still can buy something to drink and a sun bed. Waves can rise really high.

The sun sets were great. However on the downside it was very crowded, with merchants going around selling wares. I was expecting more.
