It’s very crowded and the noise almost made me mad. The best thing to do is to rent a bike and leave this beach!

There are the direct ferry from Pattaya Pier to Tien Beach and Naaban Pier. I don't know there is the ferry to Samae Beach or not.

Parasailing in Koh Larn (0 Replies)
According to my research, it seems that parasailing is only available in the Tawaen Beach. Do Samae/Tien/any other beaches also have parasailing? And do they also open only until noon? Thank you!

Visiting Koh Larn Island (Coral) for a group of 8 (1 Replies)
I would like to visit Koh Larn Island by easy and economical way. I read that Koh Larn Island can be visited from Bali Hai pier by speedboat by paying B 150. Do we take this from Bali Hai Pier (or any other place?) or can we rent a private speedboat (how much?). Would not like to take B 30 boat as it will drop us at an place, from where we need to take transportation again. Also as like to spend only a few hours, which beach we should visit, TAWAEN Beach, SAMAE Beach, or NUAL Beach or any...More

From Pattaya to Samae beach (Koh Larn) (2 Replies)
I was wondering how can I get to Samae beach in Koh Larn. I know that they have ferries from Bali Hai Pier to either Tawaen beach or Naban port. But how to get to Samae beach?

Take a speedboat from the beach, or take the ferry to Koh Larn and then a baht bus or motorbike to Samae beach... There are plenty of busses and taxies on Koh Larn.
