Regular beach front

Very commercial with lots of hawkers. You have parasailing close by but the parasailing ride is too short, it is just a round of the pier. The coral island beach is better.

The water is just full of filth. Be sure to get some jabs before going swimming in the sea at Pattaya.

Not really what we were looking for. No proper sand and lots of old and dirty sun beds (if they can be called sun beds, more like chairs) available from locals but we didnt dare sit on those. No beach atmosphere and really not worth going at all, only went once and never went back. Shame though as we really... More

I ve never seen such filth..dirt..and abundance of big fat rats as here on pattaya beach road beach front..I ve lost count of literally the rats..they wander freely..humans..hookers..and rats make odd mad combination..and it seems no one bothers or gives a hoot about the health problems it poses...all in the name of tourism is permissible...

Blue sea - check! White sand - check! I just couldn't stand the smell of the fuel when I got into the water.

went there with my husband. there are plenty of water sports available. we tried a couple of them and enjoyed a lot but the beach is very dirty and stinks of sea food (though every nook and corner of pattaya does). Definitely, but, it is a must visit attraction in Pattaya.

plenty of water sports provided but be extra careful with those male workers especially girls. They will harass you when they are preparing you for water sports and you can do nothing because you are either preparing to get into the water or flying up to the sky.

took 20 minutes to reach the pier & 30 seconds para sailing ride. yes, good for first time adventure, but they must equip themselves for longer hauls. good first time thrilling experience, though

Went there with family. As I was told, the beach is newly furnished with wide pedestrian walkway. There are a lot of water sports options available here. Even I and wife tried some of them
