On the first day of arrival ot wasn't too bad. But with the days it got very dirty, on last day of holiday, even the little one(5-6) did not wanted to go swimming as much as previously. We've seen, the dirty nappie, fake silicone, bottles and much more rubish in the sea. Even at the entrance to the sea you... More

The best place in Pattaya. The beach is really clean and a very popular place among tourist. A must visit. You take a speed boat from Pattaya beach which takes two stops before reaching the beach. The first being parasailing and second one for snorkeling and both are optional. Seriously you have to visit this if in Pattaya.

My first time in Pattaya and very dissappointed. There is nothing special about this place. The beach area is very dirty, lots of rubbish and you dont get a full picture of the beach because of huts, and etc. Also surrounding areas are full of rubbish. The taxi drivers and other drivers who offered services are daylight robbers. They really... More

The beach of Pattaya is not something you would recommend for those who seek a beach holiday. Sunchairs are not too comfortable and also the sand and the sea are not the best. Walking by vendors are offering you all kind of goods and food in every 10 seconds.

Okay, by general standards, this is not a real ocean beach. It's a Bay beach. The water depth increases quite quickly from the edge. Whilst it's clean, I didn't like the fact hookers were allowed to be around looking for customers. Took away the safety aspect for families (hookers were friendly but it attracts undesirables). You can hire a beach... More

it should not even be called a beach.. there is a pavement on which you can walk and you will find a few shacks also around. Its along the beach road and many eatries around. So if you want to walk with sea around you.. you can go there..

Lots and lots of boats buzz about and emit a faint smell of petrol. It's ok but Jomtien is much better. Many tourists (fair enough). Walking St runs parallel for about 500mt of the south end the beach but the beach is not visible from the street for the shops and bars.

Didn't spend a lot of time here to be honest but I do know a lot of people do not like the beach in Pattaya and many consider it to be dirty.I would recommend taking a ferry and visiting one of the nearby islands like koh Larn for a much nicer day out.

Pattaya Beach is over crowed, the water at times dirty, and the beach itself is not clean. I don't recommend it to anyone going to Thailand. Much better and cleaner beaches on the west bay.
