Pattaya beach itself can be a favorite spot for locals to hang out; rent a deckchair and umbrella and snack out or get a drink. Nice views. It's crowded with deckchairs for rent most of the year. There are lots of motor-boats and jetskis and it's close to Pattaya Beach Road so it's not peaceful. Only go there for activities. If you want a good local beach head down to Jomtien or further south.

Very good beach, you can go with a boat to the nice islands. On the boulevard i missed bars.
It's a very big city you can do a lot things.

Do not expect fine sands and clean beaches in Pattaya beach, it's one of the worst maintained of all beaches in thailand to my opinion. The water is always cold, the sands are like pebbles and the beach chair totally not worth it, comparable to Singapore's Sentosa beaches.
But one can't expect much if it's a little escape from the buzzes of cities, it's the nearest acceptable beach from Bangkok.
But the beach front is developing so tourists can expect much improvement from the state government I presume

It was a nice one day trip from bkk to pattaya beach for relaxing tanning and entertainment.
Sea scooter and banana ride is so cheap compared with many destinations in asia even in Thailand.

The beach sucks. It's small, dirty and dingy. The city needs to do a better job with maintenance.

Pattaya is a great place for nightlife, the food, for people-watching, etc. But if you come primarily for the beach, you'll regret it.
