This is a good alternative to Pattaya beach as it’s much cleaner and more family-friendly. You can get the occasional parachute ride or rent a Jet Ski but it’s not taking over the beach. Good small restaurants nearby.

Really lovely long stretch of beach. Plenty of sun beds for hire. Water is sectioned into swimming and boating areas. Seems much cleaner than Pattaya beach.
