The part of the beach where the mermaid gets a lovely view of sunset, there is also a decent local Thai restaurant just along the footpath from here.

Plan to be there few years ago & finally we went there on last year Dec. Beautiful mermaid statue by the beach, well worth for few photographs here. There are other nice statues nearby too. Remember put on sunblock before you go!

I passed though this town during a business trip. The Samila Beach (where the Golden Mermaid is located) is very beautiful and calm sea. I recommend this town for a quite visit but not for many days because it can become boring.

Beautiful statue, well worth a few photographs, I've seen it twice now and always appreciate it. best to go on a dry day, the whole town is good if sprawling, Saturday evening a great market in town, food, clothes, everything. Some great photos to be taken. Beach is lovely but not a sun bathing one !!

Beautiful beach. A good way to spend an afternoon before heading for some seafood. The mermaid is suppose to bring you luck. Go Take a picture with it!
