“rest n relax”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

It was much more quiet than Patong Beach. The resteraunts were very well priced and people were all so happy to help you.

“Great seafood restaurants”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

If staying near Rawai beach, make sure to visit the seafood restaurants on the beach. You can choose to order directly from the restaurant (and all the fish and seafood are very fresh) or buy your fish from one of the many stalls opposite the restaurants and then bring it to one of the restaurants who will cook it for you.

These restaurants are not just for tourists because there are also a lot of Thai people eating in them too - a good indicator of their worth. These Rawai seafood restaurants are much better value than those in Chalong Pier.

“Rawai beach”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in Rawai in April 2012, did not think much of the area because of the open drains smell along the beach, having said that the fish restaurants are great and cheap.

“Not much,but a must”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I know that the tittle is quite strange,but i think it's the most appropriate.It is just a beach,where most locals donot like to swim.It is not the best beach around the island but...you have to go there.Simple because is where you can find fresh,really fresh and quite cheap(at least comparing to my country prices.So the deal is really simple,you choose what fish you like and buy it.You cross the road and choose a restaurant where they cook it for you for a small amount of money.It is the best way to eat fresh fish in really good prices.
Donot miss it

“Lively area but not too crazy busy - just right”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The Rawai area offers a lot. Boat trips, bars, the gypsy village for fresh fish restaurants. People go kayaking and kite surfing from the beach.
