“The Best Beach In Pattaya”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We stayed at the Rabbit Resort, rated number 1 in Pattaya. Not just because of the awesome facilities, owners and staff, but also because of the beach. It was lovely to walk along in the shallows and we had a couple of nice swims in the clear warm water.
Dozens of "pop-up" bars with sun lounges operate daily and we enjoyed buying a beer and chatting with the locals who operate these.

“i wouldnt swin in this beach”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I have lived in jomtien for a little while, and have visited this beach many times - although i have never actually swam in the water, being rather fuss and a germ freak the water and the beach is just a bit too dirty for me !
In saying that, i see lots of russian and other tourists swimming in here.
If your after a beach holiday in thailand, lets just say pattaya and jonteim would not be on your hit list !! There are heaps cleaner, nicer places to have a beach holiday in thailand, head south to phuket and the islands :)

“Nice and serene beach”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Visited for 2 hours and took a nice stroll. Less crowded than pattaya and coral island beaches. Got a nice promenade too with shopping and dining options. Can be slightly away from the main city area. Overall must visit.

“nice city, okay beach”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

definitely prefer jomtien to the hustle and bustle of pattaya. and compared to pattaya, you can actually swim in the water without coming out looking like "swamp thing". lots of bars and restaurants without all of the annoying people yelling like pattaya

“Water is terribly dirty”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

The beach it self is quite good and the different vendors keep it fairly clean. The best was that they still sell European newpapers even though it's low season. Worst is the water! This cannot be healthy as well as there is a lot of debris floating around!
