No white sand or dramatic rock formations. But also no 5-star resorts or beach shacks catering to drunk Euro trash. Just kilometers of virgin sand and dramatic breaking waves. A few fishing boats and a couple of dogs are all I’ve ever run into here...More

This has to be the cleanest beach I've been to in Thailand. It's located on a military base Wing 5 and open to the public until 18.00 every day. Don't forget your passport!
