It's not a great beach. But it's central and usable. Lots of parasols and chairs. Not bad for swimming but the sea isn't that clear

You go here of an evening and all you see are desperate old women trying to make some money by sleeping with drunken tourists. The Thai government should seriously clean up this dump. Make it a place you want to visit. Not run away from

I can give you many reasons to travel to Pattaya but beach is not one of them. It is a filthy beach that has got majorly eroded and hence going through "nourishment" as they call it. So stay away from this one

Has to be one of the most disgusting beaches in Thailand, polluted, smelly and prostitutes everywhere. Constantly looking out to not tread on needles. Grim

There are speed boats in the bay this is quite disturbing to swimming as it generate waves very unexpectedly. There are areas demarkeated for swimmning but certain days the water is not clean due to seaweeds and cannot swim, it is not shallow beach so one need to be careful not to get dragged on to deeper areas, so children...

Just avoid the beach... rats all over the place... stick to walking along the large paved area and your hotel pool...

Visited Pattaya on the 17th of March, and went to the beach only once. A small word to those putting high hopes for an all day long swim at Pattaya sea, beware of the Jelly Fish!!! We were lucky enough not to be attacked by any. But even though we stayed at a five stars hotel, we spotted a gigantic... More

We have been here several times and it has never been crowded. The water has always been warm and looks clean but watch out as there are a few hidden rocks below the water. Lots of boats to take you out to the islands and jet skis for hire. Lovely walks along the beachside and the beach is serviced with... More

Beautiful beach with many activities available. Some fabulous walks and great for people-watching. Rebuilt after the tsunami and a very friendly place.

Nice beach for walking alongside! Restaurants, bars and various attractions are offered, including ladies offering their company! Very lively in the evening, where one can have a drink watching the people passing by! Of course, I would not dream of swimming there! But then, I am Greek, spoiled by our beautiful beaches!
