For the first time visitors, this beach is like heaven where they will find all their wishes coming true....though it is not clean, but there are many visitors visiting this place. Here you will find many men trying to get into a casual relationship.

Let's face it...Pattaya is sort of the red headed step child of Bangkok. It's crowded, dirty, and filled with people (old, fat, Caucasian men) looking for companionship. The beach is no different.

I had been to the beach many years ago. Now it becomes better and better. The beach water are cleaner and clearer, without rubbish or strange things anymore. The beach profile is also great. Sands are great. The sea bed is even better. Only a regular swimmer will know how important it is.

Not worth visiting as an attraction by itself, but if already staying in Pattaya, then this is a daytime alternative to the bars and shopping malls. Bring a friendly companion easy on the eyes, order some food from the countless vendors, or take a nap on a deckchair on the water's edge.

Sand is brown water murky and con men looking to rip you off all on the water side Across the street bars and shops all great and friendly people ! If you sit on the beach under an umbrella it's nice and you will be taken care of ! If you want to rent a jet ski ... Be careful
