Its rocky and nobody seems to swim there.

In a week I saw one person in the water, a guy trying to surf.

What beach! there is a strip of sand right on the road? I was tehre in October and only saw a few local children playing late afternoons. Nearest beach is Patong which will be crowded in peak season. Lovely hotel with a great pool but if you want a quieter beach head north towards Surin Beach and there are several small bays on the way

Hi

as previously stated you can pretty much forget swimming in front of hotel due to the rocks in the water.
