A pleasant quiet place where there are practically no extraneous sounds, only the sound of the wind and the rustle of palm trees. You can sit under an umbrella in beach cafe (plastic chairs, high table) or in the same place, under umbrellas on the beach, in the lounge chairs. C tray under the palm trees sell fresh coffee, and children can run on the playground near the beach.
There is a gazebo and a palm alley, plenty of space for beach games on the sand. Cleanliness is monitored, but half of the beach is not well maintained and a bit overgrown, but you can enjoy complete solitude. A good place close to Pattaya with almost island pure water and pleasant the atmosphere.
No numerous merchants sticking to sunbathers, few foreign tourists. There are very few people here, especially on weekdays. AT weekend come Thais. At least some life is only in more or less developed northern part, where the 32nd alley The whole southern half of the beach is almost wild, there nothing at all.

Entry, depth and waves

Sun beds and shade
