Beautiful beach with a stretch of white sand along a bay with mangrove-like trees. Can get a little crowded as the beach is long but not very wide. I wouldn't recommend the bay for snorkelling, but it is lovely for sunbaking.

We took a snorkelling trip and this was the first stop. Very disappointed as the corals were all dead?! Did not see any sharks, but did see some fish but nothing interesting really. Go to Ao Leuk, Hin Wong and Mango Bay instead.

Stay to the right of the bay and in shallow water you will see many small black type reef sharks. Very exciting and not scary as they are just 30-40 cms each.

We got to Thian Og by scooter but had quite a trek down to the beach through what looked like a construction site (new resort being built?).

Our favorite beach with trees that provide shade on the hot days. We found the water much more calm than on the eastern beaches.

Beach was alright, quite a lot of litter, lots of mosquito's at dusk. We got a taxi from sairee for 500 baht, one of the restaurants offered a taxi service but this was 1200 baht back and the driver was incredibly drunk!Lucky we had a card for the taxi we arrived in.

This beach use to be accessable from the road near Freedom beach but now it is more like a private beach for a luxury resort. The beach is nice and sandy but the snorkelling is not as good as on the other beaches (Mango Bay, Tanote, Hin Wong). On the other hand, it is the best place to see sharks... More

Great spot for snorkelling and diving! Amazing beach with white sand. You can rent kayak right off the beach. Get one and go snorkelling further out, you will see more stuff!

This is a beautiful beach but slightly ruined by the warm dormant water and slimy feeling one gets when stepping into the water and sinking into the mud.
