After visiting the ‘Buddha On The Hill’, we took a baht bus in the wrong direction and ended up on Jomtien Beach. It’s noticeably quieter than it’s neighbour in Pattaya.

For those unfamiliar with either; there is an abundance of pre arranged deck chair seating available for a small fee. Through payment and making oneself stationary you can find yourself subject to being approached by hawkers who offer food, goods and services as a means to their income.

On this occasion we chose to stop in a nearby shop, bought a drink and some snacks and sat on some concrete seating, observing a volleyball game that had just happen to occur from a short distance.

There were a few tourists nearby attempting to get some sun, lying on towels on the beach. However my advice to them and too you, if you are in the area and wish to sunbath more exclusively, perhaps a trip to one of the quieter beaches on Koh Larn would be in order.

Jomtien beach is a lovely beach. Golden Sand and a great promenade for walking from Pratumnak to Jomtien. However, the amount of actual rubbish including plastic bags, plastic bottles and general rubbish is hateful to see. Why is it that in Thailand locals and tourists simply drop their rubbish on the beach , along the side of the roads etc. It attracts vermin and looks unsightly. I will continue to take my daily exercise on the beach but just be prepared for the eyesore.

Jomtien is just another beach covered in sun brollies. Venders hassle you every 10 minutes unless you pretend to be asleep.
water quality average.
Close to BKK.

All beachstands provide beachchairs and parasols. There's a wide selection of food and drinks at all the places. We prefer beach stand nr. 29 ( next to "Rabbit Resort" at .nr. 30) because the staff here is really nice.

This beach is huge, so you can find what you like there: you can stay in a more crouded place on the deck chair (30-40 bht/day) with lots of drinks and snacks, manicure,pedicure, massage, fake tatoos etc. Thai people will come directly to your chair to offer you things to buy (they usually adress you directly in Russian, since the majority of tourists occupying the beach are Russian). This might be a little bit annoying if you want to read a book whole day under the umbrella and not being distructed. Or you can go further from the center of the beach, where there are less people, and less sellers.

On the day we stayed the beach was very clean and the water was nice. Some people complain about lady-boys, and fat foreigners walking hand-in-hand with tiny Thai women, but I didn't see any..

In general, this is a nice place to spend morning-afternoon relaxing under the sun, with a tasty fruit shake and a favorite book.
