Nice quiet beach, just a few tourist when I was there. The beach is clean, the sea warm, clear and blue. What more can you wish for?

Beatiful people parading down a beautiful beach in the beautiful weather. What more could you ask? Sit on the red sunbeds/chairs of the Bamboo bar (I think that's right) and you may get the odd person trying to sell you something, but they soon pass you by and you can also get good drinks and decent food, too. The sand... More

A lovely beach in the day time. A great place to eat at night. And then there is the night Market. Much easier to walk, straight up or down. Lots of new accommodation. About 20 min's. ride from Chawang Beach. Another good place to take your friends.

I really loved this beach visually, I'm sure the sands have been placed by man as its perfect and the resort we stayed at manicured the beach every day. Really enjoyed the gentle easy walking contour of it too. The sand is slightly more course than I am used to so noticed it when walking in bare feet. The only... More

Lamia beach is quiet compared to the nearby beach of Chaweng. It's a fine beach but on my last visit there was some oil slicks on the sand which made it rather unattractive. And the choice of eateries at night time is much inferior to Chaweng. If you want a quiter beach and are happy with a limited choice of... More

Beautiful beach and beach town. Probably the most beautiful touristical beach I have seen in Thailand; I insist on "touristical" as there are more charming little/hidden beaches elsewhere of course. Rent a scooter if you stay in Chaweng and go see by yourself, it is definitely a worthwhile little trip.

We took a songthaew from Chaweng Beach to spend the day at Crystal Bay. The songthaew dropped us off at the entrance of Crystal Bay Resort and before proceeding down the steps to the beach, we stopped and enjoyed the view with a beer from the terrace of the resort. The staff were so accommodating, we decided to return for... More
