This beach is very nice and also a spot for surfing...one the few in Thailand. There are a lot of resort but actually is quiet. Unfortunately there are a lot of sunflyes which can damage your holiday. Better Buffalo Bay

Great for surfing, paddle boarding etc. Lots of places to eat, the best one is just a hut offering Pad Thai and a seafood dish, cheap, tasty and has sunbeds.

Beautiful beach. Long and the water is perfect to play there with young kids. Just watch out when there are big waves, which is not often. There is a ice cream man who rides on the beach with a motorcycle. He sells great ice creams!!!...More

This beach is long and wide. It’s white sand and blue color of the sea and green forest gives a tropical feeling. The vibe on this beach is relaxed. The sea is relaxed for swimming, it can have some good waves, but it is fun....More

I didn't see a single surf-caster while there but understand that you can basically do whatever you want. The fun police that are so prevalent in the States are basically non-existent in Ko Phayam and Thailand in general... More
