Very nice beach, has to be reached by boat and you get bothered by people wanting to get you to have your photograph taken with turtles and alligators. Too many people to be really enjoyable

a short boat ride from asian forum building drops you off on this beach, which is filled with people selling fruit and trying to get you to take photos with sea turtles and a crocodile for money. the beach itself is rough and quite a lot of litter in places. nothing to see

It's just nothing but a boat ride. The beach separates the the river and the sea which makes 2 different colors of sands of beaches.

This is blatantly illegal as they are a protected species and are endangered. Take a pass on this one. You take a boat taxi there and are immediately set upon... More

Wind was decent and we were a long way from most tourists, although had to dodge a few locals scraping for shellfish. Locals don't seem to mind kites as much as some westerners. Beach is nice away from the crowds.

I was not happy with this place at all. Having heard and read some good reports on Jade Belt beach I was hoping for a lot more. Access to the beach is via a short boat ride. The boats are in pretty bad shape and they are all layered with sand. The windows are dirty making any chance of a... More

The beach is best at night when you can sit on the rocks or steps leading down to it and watch the waves roll in endlessly. I did not go down there during the day.

It was a sand bar covered with too many people, fruit stands, and mopeds. Very disappointing.
