If you want to stay where the "action" and... More

I found it convenience by staying in the hotel on Ton Sai Bay although the beach on Ton Sai Bay was poorer than Loh Dalam Bay.

If you aren't looking to swim, this is the perfect beach for you. The sand is soft and there is a lot of beach area. There's a... More

Ton Sai is unique. I'd like had stayed more time. I spent 2 days, but I in my opinion I should do it 3 days. If you enjoy climb, even more than 3 days. When I arrived I got a little scared, cause it doesn't have even a pier there. But it has a good resort (Ton Sai Resort), with... More

A nice beach crowded with longtails, speedboats and lots of tourists going in and out. Good for sunbathing but not really for swimming or hanging around.
