Pattaya Beach is a famous tourist attraction of Thailand. The beach has beautiful scenery. The weather is cool and calm. Tourists like to swim and sit and relax. or playing various water sports Everyone can stop and take pictures.

Pattaya, where everyone has to go including me. very tasty food Seafood is more delicious than other places. Fresh, clean, many shops, good view, cool and shady atmosphere. Suitable for vacationing with family. I also like that my parents take me to visit Pattaya often. It's a really fun city.

Life on Soi 6 and the beach today
Feb 2021 • Solo
The doors are open, the ladies are visable, and beer flows in the bars today. Many shops that werent opend in Dec actually reopened today in hopes that the customers have returned. Today Soi 6 and tge beach in Pattaya had lots of life. Be careful as many brave tourist still dont wear their mask and social distancing is moot as its the social lufe here that people observe and not the rules. You'll think business as usual.

Pattaya is trying to improve the beach a lot its a nice walk along the front, they call Coconut Grove, you can get a lady here every day, or just stop for a beer, and people watch.

An entertaining beach
Sep 2020
It is a very long beach with Palms. High difference in tide, so very interesting to watch. Lot's of food vendors walking by, so you never leave hungry plus lots of other beach services.

Go to jomtien
Sep 2020 • Friends
It's a mess at moment after the heavy rains. They had put in a new drainage system to prevent this so I think they need to go back to the drawing board. They have also introduced new laws stopping drinking alcohol and smoking (not sure about eating). If I want to go to a beach will go to jomtien or just stay near the pool.

Very good beach/promenade
Aug 2020
The beach is now a great big expanse of golden sand. There are a lot less beachside vendors which opens up the views from the prom. There are safe bathing areas and at present, there are very few speedboats and jet skis etc so bathing is good. The promenade walk of about 2.5km each way is mainly shaded with palms and is well used as an exercise area. There are many shops, bars, restaurants and hotels on the other side of Beach Road, quite a number are not open due to lack of trade.

Man made beach with highly questionable sea water quality
Feb 2020
Beach chairs only available on certain days. Hawkers bothering you trying to sell food, watches, massages and leather goods which you get extremely fed up with. On the promenade by the beach the ladies and ladyboys all day and night trying to sell you sexual services. At night you can see the rats scurrying around on the beach. You want nice beach go Islands NOT Pattaya.

Pattaya and it’s Beaches Explained
Jun 2020
Pattaya may have a rather nefarious reputation but if you are looking to get out of Bangkok and visit a beach, it is one of the closest and easiest to get to plus the choice once you are here is quite large.

With the post-Covid situation, changes are happening every day. At this time no international visitors, just locals, so everywhere is very quiet but busier at the weekend, especially Jomtien.

My suggestion is to take the Motorway as this is straight from BKK right into the centre of Pattaya. There is a Toll Booth to collect your ticket just after Suvarnabhumi airport and the next stop is the Toll Booth just outside Pattaya. It costs THB.105 each way. If you want to take a break on the way, there is a large service area about half-way with a vast variety of food and beverage outlets. This is the only place to get petrol on the route. Journey time is about 1.5 hours.

Soon after the second toll booth you arrive in Pattaya and you will see directions to each of the beaches in the text. From North to South you have the choice of many beaches.

Wong Amat Beach is a large crescent beach with limited access, so not so many people. It is in the Naklua area which is where many up-market condominium buildings and resorts are located. Beautiful sand, relatively quiet with limited water sports (speed boats/jet skis). Wong Amat Beach does boast an excellent seafood restaurant, be sure to visit Rim Talay Seafood. As you arrive in Pattaya, at the first lights turn right along Sukhumvit, take North Pattaya Road and turn right to Naklua just after Terminal 21 Shopping Centre. Follow Naklua road and turn right on Soi 16 or 18. There is only street parking and follow the alley way to the beach.

Pattaya Beach is a large crescent expanse of sand with the sights rather spoilt by the number of restaurant boats moored in the middle, but it is impressive! Sun beds and umbrellas are located on the edge of the beach and there is, currently, ample roadside parking. If you are going for a swim, wear flipflops as it is quite a walk to the waters’ edge and the sand does get hot! As you arrive in Pattaya, at the first lights turn right along Sukhumvit, take North Pattaya Road and go straight as you pass Terminal 21. This leads you directly onto Beach Road.

Cozy Beach is a gem if you are looking for a beach without the crowds. Not so easy to find but once you are there you can almost enjoy your own private beach. There are sun loungers and umbrellas for hire but no other facilities, however on the cliff above you will find the Chocolate Factory and the impressive Sky Gallery with it’s excellent service, cuisine and views. Cozy beach is located in the Pratumnak area, take the road opposite Big Buddha and follow the signs to Chocolate Factory and Sky Gallery. Parking is available on the street. The steps down to the beach are located at the end of Chocolate Factory, be careful as they are a bit uneven but the beach is well worth it!

Hu-Gwang Beach offers total seclusion. It’s a small beach and access is down a rather forbidding concrete stairway, but the beach is a pleasant surprise. It does look as though it has seen better days, but it is a gentle, sandy beach with very few people. There does appear to be 1 vendor with a few sun loungers and surprisingly there were even 2 Lifeguards on duty on the day of my visit. There is a quaint little local restaurant and the Birds and Bees resort with its’ Cabbages and Condoms restaurant. From Pratumnak Road take Soi 4 right to the end. There is parking and look for the steps on the right down to the beach.

Pratumnak Beach is less commercialised and relatively secluded with few people. There some vendors with umbrellas and sun beds but there are also a lot of trees. Generally, not busy during the day but quite a gathering place for local Thais to meet in the late afternoon. Ample street parking, Sands Café located on the beach and several other small eateries close by. Try Zabb if you are looking for great Isaan food. As you arrive in Pattaya turn left onto Sukhumvit road, at the third set of traffic lights turn right onto Thep Rasit road. At the lights at the end, turn right. At the next lights turn left. About 200 meters further turn left onto Soi 5 and follow this straight down to the beach. From Pratumnak beach you can walk along toe promenade to Dongtan Beach and into Jomtien.

Dongtan Beach is a really lovely beach and as it has limited vehicle access it remains relatively quiet. There are trees all along the beach offering plenty of shade. There are some vendors with umbrellas and sun beds but these are currently limited. If you are looking for peace and quiet on a beach, this is probably the best choice. You will have to park your car, but it is well worth it. Dongtan Beach can be reached on foot from Pratumnak Beach, but it is best to turn left at the end of Thep Rasit road then right down to the Police Box on Jomtien beach. At the Police Box turn right (by 7-11), there is a small parking area here and then walk along the beach. The Pirate Bar offers good snacks and The Sand Bar is highly recommended for high level food, pastries and coffee.

Jomtien Beach starts from the Police Box at the end of Thappraya Road and continues for more than 6 kms of wide, open beach. There is ample parking on the promenade and vendors with umbrellas, chairs and sun beds. Just find a parking space and you will be looked after. The beach is wide open and friendly, when the tide is out there is sand as far as the eye can see. Even when the tide is in there is a great atmosphere with plenty of shade from the trees. Vendors can bring you most food choices and just across Beach Road are a vast variety of excellent restaurants. The further you proceed down Beach Road, the less commercial it becomes though restaurants are to be found down the entire length.

CLEAN PATTAYA BEACH
Jun 2020 • Family
For the first time, the beach was clean, uncrowded, few to no hawkers, some sunshed seating who were not obseving social distancing. Before some kind of crowds return go have a break in Pattaya Beach.
