“Picture postcard beach!”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

This is a petite, beautiful, quiet beach. I first came here in 1999 when it really wasn't much more than a few garden sheds and a couple of restos. So I was very happy to return in 2013 to find that (although it has clearly expanded) it is still far from over-developed.

The water is shallow and clear and the beach is still only surrounded by a single row of resorts, guest houses and bar/restos. We did see a couple of dogs doing their business on the beach but hotel and resto owners are good at getting things cleared up. During the dry season the water can be very shallow and there are a lot of rocks so be prepared for a bit of clambering if you want to get out far enough to swim.

It is calm and beautiful and - for me - one of my favorite places in Thailand.

“Snorkelling”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Spent a couple of hours here snorkelling with the daughter. Absolutely beautiful location although very busy. Water crystal clear and an abundance of fish to watch. Worth walking across the sand bar or swimming over and exploring the small island and waters around it. Bar on the beach has good toilets and wicked lemon shakes at a reasonable price.
