“Sandy beach, though rocks under water”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

This beach is accessible via a boarded walk way that has been washed away and repaired in places. When first stepping foot on the beach the first thing I noticed was the piles of rubbish, e.g. bottles and cans among the trees at the end of the beach. The beach itself is lovely and sandy. There is sand under the water but also large rocks which can make it uncomfortable underfoot; my companion put her sandals on when in the water. There are less rocks further along the beach.

Sun loungers are conveniently located under shady trees and are for hire for 50 baht for the day. Getting to the beach costs 30baht per person from Naban pier. Several dogs roam free on the beach. Showers available for 50 baht.

There is little choice in eating; the food is ok and reasonably priced by western standards but expensive by Thai standards... meal for two with 4 simple vegetarian dishes, rice and drinks was 640 baht.

This is one of the better beaches on Koh Larn if you are looking for the less touristy.

“White soft powdery sand.. greenish blue water..”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

White soft powdery sand.. greenish blue water.. One of the biggest beach on Island. The atmosphere here seems very relaxed and quiet. There are no roads to this beach. You have to walk a little if you coming by bike.

There are lots of souvenir shops and eateries around…

Make a visit if you on Koh Lan.

“Best side of Koh Larn!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

My friends and I were excited about spending the day at Koh Larn, just off the coast of Pattaya. We tried to arrange direct transport from Pattaya to Tien Beach on Koh Larn, but it didn't exactly work out. Even specifically showing the charter company where on the island we wanted to be dropped off at, we were still taken to the main [wrong] beach. This beach is jam packed full of Chinese & Russian tourists. From there we had to take a sungthaew ride for 40B over to Tien Beach. It was worth the hassle though, because that coastline is breathtaking. Turquoise water and white sand as far as the eye can see. There are a few restaurants and food stalls, but nothing extraordinary. I wish I had brought more water & snacks. But it was still a beautiful day on a beautiful island.
