“Peacefull. Relaxing. Beautiful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Not easy to get to, but well worth the trip. You have to take a longboat from Haad Rin. Wait for enough people to fill the boat and it should only cost 200-300baht.
If nobody else is going and you dont want to boat, The only other option is to hire a 4x4 truck to take you.. Expensive though. Atleast 1000-2000 baht.

Once you get there, usually you'll have to literally go from door-door checking for vacancy. Be careful walking along the sketchy wooden bridges/pathways. Most of the bungalows do not have online booking options AND everyone checks out whenever they feel like it, so you have to ask everyday if anyone has left. There ARE a couple of nice places that you can book in advance anyway..
Once you're there, there's not much to do. It's pretty remote, so just chillout and unwind. Food is a little pricier but very good, and large "American size portions"

Have fun.

“Very remote but nice beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We stayed here for two nice at one of the hotels at the hill. Terrible hotel, but the beach was pretty good. Nice water for bathing and swiming! Some good restaurants and some bad ones. Not much to do here otherwise. Eden parties on tuesdays and saturdays are guite different and liberal :)

“Favorite place in Thailand.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Went first in 2004 and have returned twice: 2006 and 2010. Love this beach and will
continue to return...next time with my toddler son as its family friendly. The water was calmer in July and a bit crazier in January, but weather was great both times.
