“Best beach in pattaya.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

It's best beach that pattaya has got to offer. A nice beach to go for a walk or rent a chair and sit back with a drink. It's much cleaner than pattaya beach. It's less crowded than pattaya beach. Good for water sports, the water is less polluted than pattaya beach. You can spent a relaxing half a day at this beach, swimming, they offer changing rooms, showers and towels in the beach shack. Or just chilling on one of the chairs with a drink watching the sea or reading a book.

“Best beach area in Pattaya - cleaner and more sandy areas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

You can grab a soltel truck ride for 10 baht per person at the police box. When you arrive, Dongtan beach is to the left (such as in front of Avalon). Gay friendly beaches - you rent a chair and they supply you with everything. You can purchase drinks and food (best chicken rice I had). To the left is Jomtien - this area is quieter and more residential than the touristy and smaller Pattaya beach in the North.

“Dirty and smelly”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

Not what I expected from Jomtien Beach (near to Pattaya). I didn`t expect so much old fat male tourists walking around - hand in hand - with tiny Thai girls... some of them I should guess underaged, but I was told otherwise..
The beach is left very narrow (only a couple of meters) by millions of chairs and sun-beds and is a bit dirty and very smelly..
I shall allow 2 stars out of 5 as they did not succeed in spoiling the good weather, sunshine and nice sea-temperature :-)
If you are planning to visit Thailand - stay some other place

“Jomtien”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

The entire Jomtien area seemed to be filled with Russians. Nothing great. Gets pretty empty by sunset. Water is clean and if you're looking for just a relaxing day at the beach then i highly recommend this place. As with any beach in Thailand, people will offer to sell you massages/beer/food and loads of other things. Way better than the Pattaya beach though. But this is a little far from Beach road/second road and that area. Take a tuk tuk or motorbike taxi early morning and spend time till 4/5pm and then head back to the city.

“By far the best beach in Pattaya”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Jomtien is more up-market and quieter, and so is the beach, which is at least cleaner than Pattaya beach. If your hotel is in Jomtien, it's fine, but it's about fifteen-twenty minutes tuk-tuk ride from central Pattaya shopping malls.

Plenty of restaurants along the beach road, but still hassle from beach vendors if you're looking for a quiet siesta slumped in a deck-chair. Again, no changing facilities on the beach or promenade, but there are one or two across the other side of beach road.
