Monkeys
Jan 2020 • Couples
Went on the monkey trail and was very lucky to see 3 monkeys that looked like mum dad and baby so that bit was great, continued on the trail which wasn't great underfoot for alot of it,water very clear and shallow,decided to do kayaking from centara after looking at reviews saying 200baht an hour,this only being true if you are a centara guest,otherwise it's 500 BAHT for 2hours even if you only want an hour it's still 500 BAHT,it wasn't the money why we decided not to do it but the awful attitude of the guy with the kayaks,it did put abit of a damper on it,but pleased we did the walk and saw the monkey's

Much nicer setting than Ao Nang
Dec 2019
Quieter and cleaner than Ao Nang as less boat traffic comes in. Easy walk of about 1km from the Ao Nang long tail area and you can either walk up and over the monkey trail or at low tide walk road the head land. No vendors available due to the hotel (can pay a fee of 5000 bhat!!) so take own food and water.

Picturesque!

Hidden Beautiful beach cove, not to crowded, pure white sand and surrounded by stunning limestone cliff. Part of a national park and the Centara Beach Resort, absolutely picturesque. You can rent a kayak for 200 Baht/hour,or just swim or lay on the white sand. Amazing. The Centara Resort coast club serves up delicious food and drinks.

If you can't stay, at least visit!

This is a little beach at the end of the monkey trail from Ao Nang, and is well worth visiting. It is quite beautiful, especially compared to Ao Nang beach, and quite peaceful except for the odd passing longtail!
Take the Monkey Trail, or just walk around the headland at low tide. Of course, the best option is to reserve a room at the Centara Grand...just sensational!

A Lovely Quiet Beach.

I have been coming to this beach for several years and have been disappointed by the way some tourists have treated this beach by leaving their fag buts and other rubbish behind. This year there have been improvements but unfortunately some tourists are unable to read the signs that smoking is not allowed on the beach.......please can we enforce this.....fag ends are not nice and they kill fish.

Worth the treck especially out of season

How anyone was allowed to build a resort on this beach defies me, total National park incursion, but I guess wuith friends in very high places you can get away with anything.

It's an absolutely beautiful beach, with stunning views, and is worth trekking over the hill for. Very Very busy over peak times like Easter / Christmas / Thai new Year, but so is much every other beach in Thailand. If you get to choose when you visit, just don't visit at those times.

For the last few years there has been no problem that I've heard reported, but there used to be a big issue here with people getting very sick from swimming with ear and stomach infections due to it's proximity to a drainage (waste water not sewage) from Ao Nang,

Beautiful and small beach
Dec 2018 • Couples
This is a very nice beach close to Centara Grand Beach Resort and Villas. Quiet and clean. No facilities on the beach itself. You must bring your food and drinks. There are restaurants in the hotel you can use. The access is via the Monkey Trail from Ao Nang. The trail is a nice, 10 mins walk from Ao Nang. I advise you to have good footwear; no flip-flops. This trail is not recommendable for persons with walking disabilities.

Great view, sea full of forest rubbish

A bay tgat can be accessed on feet through a dangerous wood made stepway and by boat. Magnificent views but somehow the waters here are full of branches, sheets and generally looks muddy. The beach is semi organized with sunbeds from the close Centara reasort.

Well worth a visit

To reach Pai Plong Beach from Ao Nang beach you can access it by going through monkey trail to the far end of right or take one of the taxiboats. I have to warn you though that going through monkeytrail in the heat is very warm and a bottle of water is recommendable.

When you arrive to the beach after monkey trail you have to write your name in cause youre entering a national park (free of charge). You may buy a daypass to use the hotels facilities. We didint do this and didnt need to pay for the servicerooms that was free of charge. The servicerooms are more in european way and very fresh.

It is Said on a sign that here you bath on your own risk so I dont know how much control they have over the jellyfishes.

When its low tide you can see small crabs in the sand and beautiful images they make in the sand. But you have to look closely cause they are tiny!

The water is fresh and clean and its a beautiful landscape. There are no shops around here so kring plenty of water. You can but a big bottle (1 liter) at the restaurant for 190 bath, usually around 20 bath in stores. If you feel hungry there is also a restaurant with different dishes, the prices are above average around 200-500 bath.

Not much to see

It really is no different from the beach next to it. Besides, isn't this supposed to be a private beach for the Centara hotel? Allowing visitors somewhat defeats the purpose and exclusivity for guests paying in arms and legs to stay there.
