Further down the beach, away from the beach chairs and umbrellas, there is a nice walk (concrete footpath rather than a wooden boardwalk!) along the seafront with the waves slapping against the rocks. It's less crowded at weekends and is a pleasant stroll.

Loads of deckchairs and food stands. Banana boats, rings etc. nice sand. Seems family friendly, very busy at weekends as it is close to Bangkok.

Come and visit Bangsaen Beach for a change from the mundane tourist beaches. Holiday with thai people the way they do

I am hoping to get to Bang Saen in the evening (flight will arrive from Chiang Mai) around 8.30pm . Anyone know if they are indeed any buses in the evening. Everything i am finding online seems to say they end quite earlier. As it is just an hour away any idea what the cost of a taxi might be? once again i had a look online but i saw such a variety trying to decide if worth attempting to get there that night or not?
