“Dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Like a lot of beaches in Thailand now, this one was just littered with rubbish. Forget your local hardware store, you can pick up most of your needs from the sand.

“Great Family Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

Beautiful shallow beach, great for families, with lots of restaurants and hotels to choose from. Make sure you buy a Con Loi (lucky balloon) from the smiling friendly seller on the beach at night, you will make his night and he will wish you good luck forever, very charming and it's nice to watch your lucky balloon go off into the distance after you have made a wish.

“Beautiful Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

One of beautiful Beach at Phi Phi. Very relaxing. Nice one for a swim and snorkeling. Little rocky on the way, if you don't take a tail boat, but worth it.

“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

As its name implies, this is one long straight beach on the western coast of Ko Lanta. I can't speak for the high season, but during low season (May-November), the beach is rather deserted and all but a few of the beach bars are closed. Other than a nice stroll along the beach with your partner, or watching the sunset, there's not much else to do here as the tides are too strong for any water activities which may otherwise be possible during the high season. In terms of beauty, the beaches further south including Kantiang bay are a lot nicer.
