The beach is there as a backdrop to Pattaya scene. It may be ok for people, who stay here in town. But it is not a good example of what you can get in Thailand. If you want a place to rest for a while and be serviced, this is all right. But if you just go to Jomtien, south of Pattaya, you'll get a much better beach to enjoy.

During our 3rd trip to Pattaya in September 2012, we were looking forward for a few days at the beach. We hired our chairs for the day and all ready for a swim in the warm water. Unfortunately the water was infested with jelly fish about 6-8 inches long. I have not read about this in previous forums. I only felt a sting and was then alerted by the numerous jelly fish around. Funny enough, nobody else swam - the children only played in the sand. The people who were dropped off the speedboats were jumping and screaming, and only when I noticed the jelly fish, did I establish the reason for their panic. We spent the day under the umbrella, and everybody who approached the water turned around. When I spoke to the locals, they told us about the jelly fish. So be aware, this can be an irritation.

What to do there:

1) Go para-gliding
2) Go under-water walking, feed fish underwater!
3) Get your photos clicked underwater! (expensive)
4) Enjoy speed-boat rides
5) Enjoy the scrumptious local meal!

Its a great place for sitting , chilling and soaking the sun . Lots of hawkers will stock you endlessly . Get a good place to sit on the beach chairs and you can enjoy your day at leisure . Lots of activities also on offer , such as Water scooter , Para sailing , Fishing , Speed Boat ride and Banana boat ride . However its best to take a package from a travel agent on the main road . I also insist that if you are looking for more peace and calm then do visit Jomtein beach , the water is cleaner and the beach is less commercial and peaceful . You have the option of going for 2 trips from here , after getting a deal with the travel agent . 1 - The 3 island tour ; 2 - The coral island tour with various adventures included . Scout around for good deals before deciding on the tickets purchase .
