Nearest swimming beach to Cholchan Resort

My teenage son and friends have just booked a holiday to Pattaya staying at the Cholchan resort. They did not know what to expect, but had a vision of something like phuket!! They are now getting a rude awakening from other postings. Keen to snorkel / dive but note that Pattaya beach is not good. How far is it to a decent beach with clean water and good marine life and how cheap will it be for them to get there. Thanks to anyone who can help or recommend "must see" sights for first visitors.

The "private" beach of the the hotel is not bad but if you want to found nice beach you have to go to the island, Koh larn or the nearest island. Koh samed, 1 hour with bus and and other 1 hour with boat,offer one the best beach in Thailand. Naklua beach is the nearest beach of the Cholchan and is not bad too. On the end of Jomtien beach, before Tarzan Hut, you can found quiet place. Of course Pattaya is the best for night life and restaurants.
