“Sit back and enjoy”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Nice setting, even the jet skis and the para gliding doesn't upset.Beach chairs and umbrellas are many but necessary I think and good service for food and drink.The Sea is nice and calm good for going waist deep for non swimmers Very annoying that scooters constantly use the pathway FOR WALKING. t

“Beautiful Patong Beach”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Nice clean beach, warn water with a slight swell no waves. Not many people on the beach at this time of the year. Restaurants and Cafe's too expensive in comparison to the rest of Thailand, I was happy I found a place where the locals ate with good food at cheap prices, it is on the second road across from the lights and near the laundry, they don't set up until after 6pm, It is near the 7-11.

“Beautiful white sandy beach occupied by money hungry locals.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The beauty of Patong Beach, with it's amazing sunsets and white sandy beach, is over-shadowed by the problems such as the taxi mafia that has been set up to stick it to the non-locals as well as the problem of everyone being so money hungry that you cannot pass by a shop or hawker without being hackled to buy something.
