Don't know what boat takes 10 minutes but long-tail boat takes 20-25 and this was perfect weather. Asking price at extreme south of Patong beach was 2500 baht for four people but a little further along it started at 2000 and we got for 1800. The beach itself has some facilities that you need to pay for if you use them but the guy in the "military" shirt tried to insist we had to pay 100 baht per head just to be there. Told him we weren't paying just to be on a beach and moved away from the serviced area and he left us alone. Others in same area told us they had paid but thought it was probably a scam.
Beach is nice and secluded, a nice get away for a couple of hours. But hardly a "secret" any more. Long-tail ride was worth it regardless.
