Coming from Australia Im used to beautiful surf beaches so I was surprised at Patong, its very small. So busy too and very annoying with the constant offers of taxis and tuk tuks. But it was still a great experience and theres some fantastic shopping and loads of fun bars

If you expect fine sand, this is not the beach. Many small shells to stub your toes. Also there are small sink holes as you walking along the beach that you drop down all of a sudden about 6 inches. The first time it was a bit scary and afterwards I wish there were not so many of them. Not as great a beach as some of the raving about it. Maybe I have been spoiled by pristeen clean beaches elsewhere. Perhaps they need to rake the sand on the beach daily like other some other beaches.

The beach was fantastic. The sand was soft and the water was clean and cool.
However, The locals there should just slow down on the asking for business as we kept getting people asking us whether we want hanna tattoo, food, drinks and water sports every 5 minutes.

Beach is crowed of sun chairs and dirty. Plenty of sellers. Need to pay 100 Baht for a chair whatever the duration. All is about money in Patong, be prepared !
Water is not so clean. Better to rent a bike and go to Karon or farther.
