A crescent shaped beach with mild waves and soft sands. Nice walk and wide beach towards water. Good for family.

Our teenage boys loved the beach and the fact that they could hire a board from the local at a very reasonable price. No street sellers coming to you all the time so a nice place to relax and enjoy the beach.

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.
