Its a nice place with a long pier. It's nothing spectacular. Shops and restaurants (e.g Buddha Bar) are available. Its a nice and special drive though the rain forest till there (if you are coming from north - e.g. Kai Bae Beach)

Nice enough but not spectacular. A younger group of tourists as the beach is situated at the southernmost part of the island. Near the funny pier with small shops and restaurants. The pier is the departure point for diving and snorkelling trips.

Good experience, at the far end, the southern tip of the island, but worth going all the way. We had a bad experience with the tuk tuk guy there.
