After all the good feedback and rating about this beach, we were really excited to come here. After all we were a bit disappointed. Don't et me wrong the beach is beautiful, big, clean and very relaxed. But the resorts are a bit annoying. The jet skis aswell. You can't find any shadow and the water is not as clear as somewhere else on the island! Still very beautiful and the right thing for sun seekers!

This beach is probably the best place we ever visited in Thailand.
It's not a long beac. 5 minutes walk, very quiet, very relax and it seems as if people understand that and act accordingly.
The locals are nice, good restaurants although not to many.
The village is very very small, only one road the, all restaurants are either on the beach or on that road.
The water on the west side, in front of a Buri Rasa hotel are a bit dirty.
Green stuff is floating on the water, don't know where it's coming from but it ain't fun.
The beach is very clean.
Very romantic atmosphere takes place in the evening when the hotel are working their open barbecue outside on the beach, the fire the smells and the decorations are absolutely doing the job.
I loved the evenings on Thong Nai Pan.
My favorite beach on earth .

A nice beach closer to Haad Rin and a return trip by taxi would cost 600 - 800 THB after negotiation. Beach has nice restaurants with reasonably clean toilets. We like this beach better than Ko Tao Beaches so dont waste time and money on Ko Tao Beaches in case you are not interested in snorkelling and diving. Has soft white sand and good for swimming for single, couples, kids.

The hotels are fully booked but you dont see much people on the beach. The sand is white without stones

We stayed in TNP at long tail resort beach and scooted over to visit this side of the sister beach. Both beaches are white sand and beautiful but we liked the village here better. There were more options for walking around, and more restaurants. Definitely glad we stayed in the quiet more serene part of the island.
