We strolled mainly on the beach from our current hotel (The Lapa) and with an hour's stop at Let's Sea beach restaurant, it took around 2.5hrs today with slightly overcast weather.
Firstly, contrary to the last reviewer we only saw 2 bored and sleepy monkeys minding their own business. It was around 2pm so perhaps the others were hiding in the shade out of sight? Either way we weren't approached by monkeys or stray dogs/cats.
Secondly, while the golden statute looks intriguing from afar, we were underwhelmed once we were there. As for the temple, we have seen some amazing temples in Bangkok and Chiang Mai.... So unfortunately it was a case of seen it all for us.
There are a few cafe/ restaurants on the beach at the foot of the hill. Plus a massage place at a view point (300 baht for an hour's Thai massage looking out at HH beach). 3 mins walk from the green baht bus stop.
