Sunset beach is a 15 minute walk from Walking Street or maybe more if you explore along the way. My first time walking there I veered off and walked passed time to chill resort and Lipe Sunset resort then followed the off the beaten track path to the beach. Leaving I climbed the stairs of the Mojito restaurant and joined the road back downhill following road leading to walking street.

I arrived just after 3, sunbathed, walked the beach and had a great snorkel experience, seeing lots of different fish and coral. Sadly again the coral is struggling and not colourful. The coral begins from almost the shoreline. It is not a beach that you can just swim in the waters. As I got my place on the beach to watch the Sunset there were many attempting to take a plunge, probably to cool down from the walk there, that got a shock as they found the coral.

I was glad to have my mosquito spray in my bag as it saved me from being eaten.

Sadly my first night as the sun was setting beautifully and the colours were beginning to appear, a huge cloud covered the sunset. It was disappointing but you can’t change nature.

I took the afternoon 4 island snorkelling tour that finished watching the Sunset on a long tail boat near the beach. This was glorious.

Nice beach and good for snorkelling only during high tide otherwise too shallow to swim over corals, anemones and watch for urchins.

Clear water makes snorkelling interesting as there's plenty of marine life to see like an aquarium.

However not the best beach because of the pebbles. But the pebbles are so grounded that they are all smooth and round, an unique sight.

There's a small shack that sells drinks and snacks towards the rocky area (east). Walkable from central walking street - around 15 - 20 minutes or just grab a tuktuk for Bht 100.

Was quite surprised by the lack of people, relaxed atmosphere and superb Beach and snorkeling possibilities. Had stayed on Ko Lipe for 4 days before I made the great journey to Sunset Beach. It took me approximately 10 min walk from Pattya Beach... Ridiculous short distances on Ko Lipe, either you walk to sunrise or Under beach.. make sure to bring your snorkeling equipment, enter the water and have a great day snorkeling with great crystal clear waters. Nice food at the beach as well. Don't forget to taste the Mojito at Banana Bar on Sunset beach..best Mojito on the Island 🙌

The clear sea,the white beach the hills full of tree in the back...an incredibly beautiful place!
A little bit crowded during 30-31 Dec but really enjoyable for the rest of the stay.
Super suggest for snorkeling and enjoy the beach!
And don’t forget...after 3 pm is mojito time😜

We walked a little further from the entrance coz there were a lot of dogs lying around. Found a spot with less people get the Vibes we wanted. Very relaxing. Come before 6:30 pm local time! That's when the sun starts to set.

A nice beach which is not very long. A few expensive resorts at one end. A quiet beach perfect for just chilling out. Best part is very few boats park here. Just don't expect to see the sun actually setting.

Great beach with some snorkelling but watch the current as it shifts during the day (if you have kids) The zodiac bar is great to be near for beanbags and refreshments and no Bob Marley just cool tunes (I do love reggae just not all the time😳) . Seems you can get anywhere on the island for 50 baht.. great option!!

Do go and see the sunset, but there are better beaches for swimming and relaxing. Lots of snorkelling tours and ferries, leave from nearby. Lots of stones at low tide. Can be noisy. Plenty of bars and restaurants.

Packed at sunset, with few facilities and extortionate drinks prices. Ok if you fancy an early evening walk, but don't go to too much trouble.

The beach is dirty and full of rubbish.
Road leading to the Sunset beach is not easy to walk.
Don't waste your time to go there.
