Saikaew beach is approximately 400 m long, in the form of a lagoon between two by the hills. From the mainland side, too, it is fenced off by green low ones. by the mountains.
The sand is light gray, almost white in the sun. Clear water azure color, silt at the bottom is not enough. Lots of round slightly prickly shells in the sand at the bottom, there is also other living creatures. Especially this noticeable at low tide.
The peculiarity of this beach is that it is located on the territory military base. In Thailand, very cute military: allow tourists bathe in their possessions The advantage of such an arrangement is that the beach is very clean, neat, quiet and peaceful. No extra crowds people have the necessary infrastructure – and hire and shower. But nothing superfluous. No cloudiness, fresh air and solitude. Besides this the place is strongly outside the city and is surrounded on three sides by mountains. The downside is that the choice of shops and cafes and housing for rent is still very limited. On weekends, despite the closeness, here there are a lot of people – mostly local, both Thais and foreigners permanently residing in Pattaya.
Another feature that you should not forget – at the entrance on the territory of the base at the checkpoint are asked to leave some identity document. Passport or Thai will do. driver’s license. You can pick up your documents when leaving. from the territory of the base. Also at the second checkpoint you have to pay 100 baht collection. If you buy a transfer in a tourist office, this fee is included in cost, but the documents may not ask.
Recently ceased to let on their vehicles to the territory. We must ride a motorcycle taxi for 40 Baht, then pay 100 Baht man, then on a tuk-tuk being taken to the beach, and it seems is free.
Entry, depth and waves
Sunset in the water is shallow, with children it is very convenient to swim here. AT the water runs out quite far, leaving small sandbars, which then turn into islets, surrounded shallow water – ankle-deep adult. But children are interested run on this water mirror. There is a fenced area for bathing. This is convenient and makes sense, because around those who want to roll on water bikes and bananas. There is usually no big wave here.
Sun beds and shade
Sun loungers can be rented at the box office for 30 baht, bedding – 20 each. baht Low palm trees and others are planted between the path and the sea. trees giving shade. There are also bamboo arbors.
Along the military beach is not very wide paved path, next to it, interspersed with flowerbeds, several cafes are scattered, rental of deck chairs, bedding and other tourist equipment. Slightly in the depths, behind board-like bungalow-houses for rent, there is a free toilet and shower.
The location on the territory of the military base has its advantages and minuses. It is quiet and clean, few people, but the infrastructure and there is no nightlife either. Go to the nearest CAT almost 3 km, and then only to at least as many get to the entrance to a closed area.
There is still some kind of shop on the territory, but this, of course, far from Big C.
Houses and hotels on the beach
Housing for rent here a bit, which is not surprising. Military base not city center. There are bungalow-houses for rent, judging by the appearance, without special amenities, but right on the beach. In general, live here some time can, perhaps, only lovers of solitude. Although it will be in the afternoon violated by tourists brought from Pattaya.
