Thong Nai Pan Noi Beach in May.

Hi

Looking at going to Noi next May. Ive read that at some months of the year, the beach

is a no go for swimming. Waves too big, Rip currents ect. Is there any truth in this, and do you recommend this this beach for a couple who like a good night life but nothing like the full moon. half moon ect. Cheers

May is summertime in Thailand and one of the driest months of the year, so no need to worry about the waves and currents. Though the tide in low in May, but it is still the best beach for swimming on the island.

Would you recommend Noi or Yai. We are a couple aged 30+-40+ but love a bit of nightlife

and meeting people. Not into the full moon party scene, but we like to sample different bars and places to eat away from the hotels. Im told that Noi has a small village with some bars and places for tucker. so this would be ideal.

There are more bars and restaurants on Yai than on Noi, though Noi is the better beach for swimming. But you can easily travel between the two in foot or with a scooter (it is a paved road).

Sorry to hijack but, It it right that they've drastically developed Yai in the past 2 years. Gone are the wooden huts for 450baht a night and replaced with resort hotels? Thanks

Thanks for the tips. Got plenty of time to decide and another option is Haad Yao.

A lot to ponder
