“what a mess”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

also here six years ago and just 2 years ago... sadly now its probably worse than patong.... a filthy mess, vendors all over the place selling crap... interestingly not many westerners... just look and you can see why....what a mess.

“Great beach”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

The place where we stayed (next to VIP Chain Resort) was clean and very nice, maintained by the staff at the restaurants. The sunbeds were free (maybe because they knew us as we ate there almost every day), and the restaurant was great. The water was shallow ond luke warm, even in December (a lot warmer than on the nearby Ko Samet). The beach was quite dirty other places. When there was a low tide, the kids hunted for crabs and crawfish, and the beach became up to 100 meters broad. It was quiet and there were always sunbeds available. In the evening, the only light came from the restaurants and parts of the beach were only lit by stars and moon.

For those who want a relaxing holiday without crowds. Lovely beach, plenty of food, I had an excellent pad thai. I did not find much garbage when i was there. No parking problems. Inexpensive

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Not your white sandy beaches and sometimes a little grubby, but I can assure you it sure is relaxing laying back on a beach chair quenching that hard earned thirst. if it is a lay backed holiday you want this is the place to be. All types of accommodation provided for and everything, I mean everything, compared to the islands is dirt cheap. Care needs to be taken sometimes when swimming as they do have seasonal rips.

“Nice beach”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Long powder sand beach with lots of seafood resturants.
Highly suitable for children, beach well kept and tidy cleanded by the resturant owners
when I was there in "songkran" week. Lots of tourists but mostly Thai people from Bangkok
not so many westerners. Seems like this is a place for the thai day-trippers from bangkok.
Highly unusual to be on a beach with lots of people and beeing one of few non-thais.
Pricelevel in the resturants was a pleasant surprice, very reasonable seafood prices and I guess
its because its visited by mostly thais and not so many farangs.
