Lovely Beach but not white sand. Almost everyone go there whoever staying in Ao Nang. Plenty of massage adjacent to the beach and restaurant. Lovely rock to look out. Sometimes beach had strong waves other time it calm.

Stayed here a couple of weeks and enjoyed it but having visited many places in Thailand its not up there with the best. The place is developed but relaxed.

I came here to see the sunset in the evening. It is quite beautiful moment. The beach looks good. It's not quite the beautiful beach. You can see the ships&boats.
