The feeling of an anthill on the beach can only be on weekends and holidays when countless come here for a picnic companies of local Thais. Therefore, it is better to visit the beach during the week. days
Like the near Sai Kaew Military Beach, Nang Ram Beach is located on the territory of the military base. But unlike Sai Kaew, it is smaller. sleek and orders here are less stringent.
If Sai Kaew is lately prevented from driving on its own transport, issue a one-time pass on the security of the document and take entrance fee of 100 baht per adult foreigner and 50 per child (cheaper for local tickets), then you can drive to Nang Ram free.
Of all the “war” on the approach to the beach is one small booth by the road in which the guy collects admission to 20 baht with man (before, and in general was 20 baht from the car).
The beach is a little more than a kilometer long, the width of the sand from the sea to Casuarin grove trees that grows along the beach and is its peculiar attraction, depends on the stage of low tide, from about ten meters to a few dozen. However, differently in different parts of the beach, somewhere a strip of sand is wider, somewhere already. Usually and on average it is about 20 meters and quite comfortable.
Around the middle of the beach is divided into two parts stone in bulk into the sea. Black stones in clear azure water very picturesque, so this is a good place for romantic photo shoots. If you look at the sea, on the right the beach limits the pier, behind which is a military port, the far left end of the beach completes the hill, behind which the military airfield is located.
From the military entourage here you can watch the silhouettes of the ships of the Navy. Thailand and planes circling paratroopers over the hill at the far end of the beach.
Another small beach attraction is the black female. figure in its middle part, on the stones. Based on the name of the beach, at first you might think that this is the “dancing girl”, but not.
This is Pee Seua Samut or “Sea Demon Who Wants to Love” – pretty common on beaches throughout Thailand is a character. Looks like a big black aunt, decorated with a skirt from a real fabric and flower necklace.
Although the figure of the Dancing Girl on the beach is also there, but she smaller and located on the shore. Where is the name of the beach? By legend, from the near to the beach of a deserted island once loud music came. What more do you need music for if not beautiful girl dance?

On the beach there are ebb and very clearly expressed. When the tide is out the strongest, to the nearest small island near the beach can be reached on foot. On the other hand, even at a high tide on the beach There are areas where you can swim. More often, the ebb is not very strong and inconvenience does not deliver.
Since the depth of the coast is small and the beach is a bit covered islands and a coastline, big waves here practically does not happen. Which also makes the beach very comfortable for bathing, especially with children.
