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.
