Had a lovely, quiet meal here and the beach to ourselves. Find this beach on an afternoon during the low season and you won't want to leave!

Beautiful setting on the beach with authentic Thai dishes and lovely cocktails. The best spot to watch the sun set and have a lovely Thai dinner. I highly recommend the red Thai Fish curry. Yum yum

Found this restaurant by accident. It's hidden along the beach so if it's light before you go I recommend a torch for your beach walk home in the dark. It's a really casual restaurant, where the tables & chairs are literally on the sand. Food...More
