“You can do much better!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

I live in rawai and don't go there. Juliengable said it exact but I will add to it. RB is not a place you can really hang out per se. The area is filled with many many rocks and especially it Lowtide. There are also many speed boats and longtail boats that moar there & then leave as needed to go local islands. There are many restaurants in RB, with limited exceptions if you want nicer restaurants you need to be out of the beach area.If you desire chheaper foods then RB is ok for this.

I used to run along the beach for my boxing training every morning. It was great watching the sun rise here.

“Russians and more russians”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

If you enjoy the atmosphere of Russian people looking for company then Rawai is what you are looking for. Large russian men parading in speedos, Vodka shots and pink lights bar are pretty much all you will see in Rawai beach. enjoy.
