“Rawai Beach”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Very friendly people, not too much tourists and nice seaside bars. Nikita's bar has a particularly nice view and excellent cocktails. There are several small supermarkets (Seven Eleven and locals shops) that are open 24/7.

“cannot swim”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Can't swim the whole stretch of Rawai beach. Meant for boats to come in. But liked the idea that the nice cosy restaurants along the beach which serves seafood, local and western food. There are also motorbikes for rental all along the beach.

the boats here are where the water gypsy community live, not a bathing beach, but some nice eating places and great views, well worth a visit.
