Very clean beach, super long with white sand and transparent water, i’ve been here on a cloudy day but was amazing as well. Very few people around and many food stall/restaurant but quite expansive, so my suggestion is to bring some food with you

Thung Wua Laen Beach is beautiful. Only a handful of tourists and local fishermen on the beach at most times of the day. Not unusual for the beach to be totally deserted. Typical Thai beach, with fine golden sand and warm clear waters. Tourism has...More

It is a quiet beach. You can walking, running, swimming, you can see the mountain. There are coconut trees along the beach.

Stopped at this beach by accident and I loved it. It's very quiet and easy going. Will come back here for sure. I would also recommend it for anyone wanting a quiet beach holiday.

This beach is situated next to a quiet, well managed road. The northern end is the prettiest, with dune-like sand that carries in the wind. This area is used by the local kite surfing group. The eastern end is a bit wild and somewhat dirty....More
