“Great little beach, before March”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

My partner and I lived in Bang Por for 5 months in 2013 and used this beach regularly. From Jan - Mar it's a great beach that's rarely used and sea level was great for swimming. After March the sea levels dropped and there were rocks that made swimming difficult. If you walk for 3-5 mins you'll feel like it's your own private beach.

“Pleasant enough but not the best”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

This is the nearest beach to our hotel and while it has sand, sea and palm trees, I think it is not among the best beaches on the island. It is a bit scruffy, there is not much sand (perhaps a few feet at high tide) and the waters are not crystal clear for snorkelling. There are the usual pleasant beach bars and restaurants though and massage places too. For anywhere else I would say very good but for Thailand perhaps average, certainly better than a wet weekend in Skegness though!
