Reviewed March 18, 2014

its not the best especially at low tide but you can get a boat ride to a local island or have a nice meal for under 150 baht at one of the local eateries

“Best for eating out”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

We didn't hit the beach as it seemed very small and mainly used for fishing boats. We went a little further up the road to Nai Harn and then returned here for the evening. There are lots of restaurants to choose from and bars for a drink at, without being overwhelmed.

“Average beach.”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Beach is average for Thailand. A bit more mucky than my liking and low tide is a mess. Great eats and drinks on north end of beach!
