“Watch where step!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is a dirty filthy section of beach littered with rubbish, dog droppings and hovels that locals live in with their outhouses beside their living quarters. The water is not clear and swimming would be a health risk. We were staying at the Ravindra Resort and walked as far ad we could (north) along the beach and saw first hand how filthy this beach is!

“lazy, hazy days of summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

A close friend took us to Jomtien beach for the afternoon and couldn't believe how relaxing it was to just sit under the colourful umbrellas and drink beer, while vendors sold us food and cheap sport cloths. No effort required and we didn't have to pay for the deck chair or drins until it was time to leave.

Wonderful

“Surf and turf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Lots of beach and choices for food. Enjoy Jomtien and go with an empty belly. You might enjoy it more on a bike to ride around the side streets also.

“Better tha the Pattaya centrer beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Still too may sun-beds and too many umbrella.. and the sea water not so clear because of the sand. But the atmosphere of Jomtien beach is much better than in central Pattaya.

“Dissusting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Homeless, dirty water, sewage, unclean toilets, vendors, dogs, obnoxious beach chair squatters (can't sit there it's fred's place, been coming for the last 15 years every day etc etc.) Get the ferry to koh Laan for 30 baht and have a great time...Jomtien, give the beach a wide berth.
