“Relaxing”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Glad that we went there on a weekday when there was less crowd. I love the fact that ambulant vendors offer you local food and drinks while you're enjoying the sights and the breeze. Wish the seaside bars are open til night time.

“Jomtien Beach”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Typical Thailand beach. Very crowded and to many beach sellers. Koh Samui much better where the water is cleaner.

“Very dangerous now”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Be very careful, was mugged in broad day light and was told that they get hundreds of snatches and muggings every day now!

Also, its getting very expensive and the quality of food and service very poor now.

I wont ever return

“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The beach itself is clean and sandy, with big trees offering shade. There are vendors with folding chairs to rent, they also sell food and cold drinks/beer all day. One can have a massage, manicure or pedicure on the beach. The problem is the sea water is dirty and full of floating rubbish so that swimming is not pleasant.

“sunbathing at most”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

might have just been bad timing but the beach did not smell nice. Murky water, didnt swim, I'd recommend taking a ferry to another island like koh samet / koh lan if you want to swim. too much plastic in the water, poor infrastructure in pattaya for sewerage and wastewater which i'd guess both run directly to the ocean, tax tourists or something to sort this out otherwise there'll be no more tourists soon. hate seeing a polluted beach anywhere.
