Overal environment is good and clean. A nice place to take a photo with the mermaid. Surrounding activities including riding a pony and some shopping near the beach.

If you come to Songkhla, this is the place to take photos to proof you were there. Many tourists during public holidays.

Nothing good about the beach. There is just one statue of the golden mermaid. If you have time plan it, otherwise it's just a normal statue. Beach has got nothing to do with swimming or other water activities. It's a rocky beach.

Nice and clean beach, but not sure if one is permitted to swim coz I didn’t see anyone is swimming or maybe it’s not the right timing.

We saw 2 to 3 horse-owners by the Songkhla beach. They are there from early morning about 9 am to 6 pm.
