If I'm not mistaken, this was the very first beach in Thailand. Unless you're booked in the Sofitel, you have to walk south of Damnoen Kasem road to reach this place. There are a lot of beach chairs lined up near the entrance. There's also horseback riding being offered nearby, if you wish to feel like a Don Juan on the beach.
Other than that, I guess it's a pretty normal beach. The weather made it look a bit dreary. There are a lot of people, mostly Thais that come to this beach. I guess it's a good people-watching place, if the weather's fine too, but I'd rather not take a dip here as it's near the port.
