“Best beach on the Island”
Review of Bottle Beach

Reviewed 6 June 2014

I stayed about 1km from the beach and visited Bottle Beach 3 times. While staying on the island, I visited most of the beaches on the island as I hired a 4x4 Suzuki (900baht per day). The drive down to the beach is a little hairy as the road is a dirt track but in all honesty, after the first time, you get used to the drive and it is not that bad. I wouldn't recommend a scooter going down there and if you are without a jeep take a taxi or water taxi.
The beach, its phenomenal. You have lush green mountains all around and only a few people to share the beach with. Its one of the few really inviting beaches on the island, other places have litter or coarse sand in abundance, this beach has soft white sand and the water is aquamarine and very clear. Simply put, its beautiful.
I think some of the other reviews may be clouded as its difficult to reach, but if it was easy to get to, you would have a crowded beach, resorts aplenty and it would lose its appeal. There was some minor construction going on around the beach and I can image in 5 years time, it wont be the secluded bit of paradise it is today.

We did a three hour trek from chaloklom beach, and it was SO worth it. The trek itself was so beautiful and i would highly recommend it. It's not for everyone though, as it's pretty tough. And never ever ever do it alone. Always go at least two people. The beach itself is just stunning. Not too many people, amazing and clear water, in the most beautiful surroundings. Its worth a visit!

Loved this beach. We took a water taxi to beach then walked the trail back. The trail was not for everyone, as it was pretty tough at times. Took about two hours to walk all the way back to Chaloklum - the first place you will be able to find a taxi.

We drove two crappy motor bikes up here. The ride to the beach was okay, down the dirty little sandy road.... But the steep ride back up was next to impossible. I had to get off my bike, and push it up... I lost a sandal doing that and cut my foot open. Boo.

But the beach was awesome. White sand and crystal clear water. Had some good food at one of the three restaurants.

Beautiful views for all around. :)

This beach is pretty and calm, the waters are clear and clean. There is a small amount of bungalows and a couple of restaurants but it definitely has a great relaxed vibe. The peanut shakes were amazing!!!
