“Dirty with high waves every day”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

In july the waves from the ocean are very high there and children cannot go inside the sea for swimming. Thats what we found out at the time when we went there by kajak. We were 7 adults and 5 childrens.

Another problem was all the dirt and the broken glass beer bottles you can find anywhere at the sandy beach. Without shoes its dangerous to walk there.

I have seen beautiful beaches on Koh Samui and Koh Tao and Phuket, but this beach reminds me about Pattaya. We didnt like to go there.

“Could spend days on this beach”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

This is the only beach I visited on the island. I had a chance to go elsewhere, but if it aint broke...

We bought vouchers for 100baht at one of the resorts, which allowed us to use their beach area and chairs... the 100baht could also all b used to buy drinks or food at the resort.

Beach was not too crowded, it was clean, with several food/drink options. Deep enough to swim. There is a small reef off the shore with a few fish (not worthwhile for snorkeling alone, but makes for an enjoyable diversion).

We stayed at Bangbao pier and walked 20min to the beach... an easy walk down the main road (perhaps not for young kids tho). If I go back, Im going to try to book a beachside cottage on this beach.

“Good ride out, and worth it.”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

We've not riden scooters much so wanted a nice slow ride out to get us used to it. We travelled from Lonely Beach, easy and carefully and found Klong Kloy Beach in about 45 minutes, stopping to see the fisherman village on the way.

You'll need to turn right at the large wooden over road sign and follow the dirt track road for 10 mins before you get there but it is worth the wait. A lovely long quiet beach with friendly locals and a nice peaceful sea breeze. The water isn't quite as good as Lonely for me but still, no matter.

If you don't turn right, you'll end up at the resort built on an old ship, which will cost you 50B to get in, we didn't bother but, apparently it is worth it and, their private beach (all Thai beaches are owned by the King) is pretty good looking, we saw it from the sea.

Anyway, Klong Kloy, it is worth it, even if just to get away for a bit and shoot the breeze on your ride... :-)

“Very scenic and clean,”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

This beach is not overcrowded and clean. The view is scenic and the ambiance is quiet without laud music. There are some nice eateries in the beginning of the beach.This is my favorite beach for relaxing.
If you arrive on a scooter, you must not park it on the road. There are some pretty nasty and agressive monkeys there that have done much demage on many scooters there. The parking on the nearest restaurant is cheap and safe.
