It's a great beach mainly frequented by people travelling with families. Had a great time swimming and lazing around with the kids. Nice clean seafront with some good food joints lining the beach.

Large gulf with white sand and green water with picturesque front bay ... very crowded but well-manned and with little parasols and deckchairs. On the alleyway adjacent to some stalls, massages restaurants and cafes and tourist attractions. Pleasant place for various bathers.

I´ts really cheap. I think around 15 bahts. August would be a little expensive than low season months. I went on november and it was really cheap, but you should not worry for a huge incrementation of prices.
