This is by far the better place to stay and chill out in Pattaya. Still a reasonably busy area and busy beach road, it s a far cry from downtown Pattaya with its small beach line and grubby water caused by all the activity down there. Loungers are cheap and the local restaurants will serve food to your deck chair!... More

Pattaya has more to offer than just Go-Go bars and disco theques. a serene beach with clear water, and much to do for. u can kite board, u can jet skii and all this in a less crowded sorrounding. the beach in itself is a treat at time of sunset to sit down and relax with a pint of beer... More

I always enjoy this beach. People are friendly and the beach is long. I do wish the water was cleaner though. Quite often it's merky. Hotels and food are most often pretty good. I'd rather stay in Jomtien then Pattaya.

If you are in Pattaya on vacation, chances you will be staying in north, central or south Pattaya. The beach that runs along beach road is narrow, steep in spots and non existent in other spots when high tide comes in. So take a songtaew at the corner of south Pattaya road and Second road. There is a big school... More

Glad that we went there on a weekday when there was less crowd. I love the fact that ambulant vendors offer you local food and drinks while you're enjoying the sights and the breeze. Wish the seaside bars are open til night time.

Typical Thailand beach. Very crowded and to many beach sellers. Koh Samui much better where the water is cleaner.

Be very careful, was mugged in broad day light and was told that they get hundreds of snatches and muggings every day now! Also, its getting very expensive and the quality of food and service very poor now. I wont ever return

The beach itself is clean and sandy, with big trees offering shade. There are vendors with folding chairs to rent, they also sell food and cold drinks/beer all day. One can have a massage, manicure or pedicure on the beach. The problem is the sea water is dirty and full of floating rubbish so that swimming is not pleasant.
