No white sand or dramatic rock formations. But also no 5-star resorts or beach shacks catering to drunk Euro trash. Just kilometers of virgin sand and dramatic breaking waves. A few fishing boats and a couple of dogs are all I’ve ever run into here...More

It was our recent discovery! Now we consider it one of the best beaches in Prachuap Khiri Khan province. It’s very cozy, clean. While our visit we didn’t notice any horse riding services which are spoiling many Hua Hin beaches. Picturesque view to several small...More

This has to be the cleanest beach I've been to in Thailand. It's located on a military base Wing 5 and open to the public until 18.00 every day. Don't forget your passport!

When you want to visit Ao Manao Beach, you have to enter the military base of Wing 5. Every body can enter after having registered at the gate. The beach is well maintained by the military. Along the beach there are a lot of restaurants....More

This place is a little bit out from usual tourist destinations in Thailand. It is told to be among the most stunning beaches on the Thai mainland (not including islands) and it's right. This is really a little tropical paradise with white sands, palm trees...More

A little unknown place south of Bangkok. This beach resort is set inside a Thai airforce base. Popular with locals it’s soft sand and calm ocean water will have you relaxed all day. Defo worth a visit when ever your in the area.
