The place is a nice little sandbar and they build a few cottages to allow you rest and eat by the shade and comfortable. The only bad side is the garbage/plastic you can find on the beach...they should fix it.

If you have a chance to visit Pandanon Island, you must try! Very clear water and white sands are waiting for you! The island itself is small, but it's worth to be there ;)
