At the advise of our accommodation host, we spent a few hours at Layan Beach. The sand seemed to be nicer just south of Layan Beach at Laguna Beach. Not many people around so it was quiet but when you leave the beach, you can...More

The beach was clean with soft sand and we enjoyed the swim. Not too crowded. At around 11:00 am, still plenty of lounge chairs with shade available for rent for 150 baht. There is at least one restaurant and a beach club.

Many signs saying you can't swim. Rubbish everywhere. Looks pretty abandoned. The water is very dirty and there is absolutely nothing to do. If you are after a nice beach to swim and chill at I personally do NOT recommend this beach.

A good place if you wanna stay clear of the noisy beaches with many people. Here you can simply relax to the sounds of nature and hear the waves roll with a book and cocktail or two

Such beautiful beach but infested with flies that gave painful bites all over my body. It is worst under the shade or in restaurants. The stench of clogged up drain is pretty bad too. This place needs a good clean up!

I travelled to Layan Beach from Bang Tao beach about 20-25 minutes by moped. A beautiful stretch of beach that is quieter than Bang Tao and no less impressive. It took a couple of minutes before realising that Layan Beach is a continuation of Bang...More
