“very quiet beach”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

This is my favourite beach on Koh Larn because it is the smallest and quietest; the perfect place to get away from other tourists and motorised water sports - though I have seen one man renting out a jet ski. It is sandy underfoot both in and out of the water. There are sun loungers or deckchairs for hire (50 baht for the day). This is the beach for those who want peace and quiet and do not need any beach entertainments.

Getting there costs 40 baht per person on the songthaew (open back trucks) from Naban port on Koh Larn, though this is based on many sharing transport so if it is just you and a friend you may be charged up to 100 baht for the journey. This is a lot of money by Thai standards.

As it is so isolated and not many go there, it may be difficult to find transport when you are ready to leave. On my last visit a Thai speaking friend had to speak to a local who called a friend who came and picked us up, If you are visiting I recommend you time your departure with when the last day trippers will have to leave to catch the last ferry back to Pattaya, or when you have your own transport - it costs 200 baht to hire a scooter for the day though you do so at your own risk and no travel insurance will cover any accidents when using one.
