Wonderful untouched natural beach that stretches for miles, no bars, no karaoke, no malls, just relaxing sun sea and sand. Would recommend visiting the army officers retreat for lunch as it always very fresh and good prices.

Very nice beach. Limited facilities. A few seafood restaurants, and a 7/11. Geared very much for Thais from Petchaburi town. No bars, one coffee shop, and small resorts. Appears to be future development going on. Maybe good in 5 to 10 years.

This appears to be a 'one horse town' when you first arrive, but get beneath the skin and a great deal happens here. There is an interesting temple, a museum built to house a whale carcass, and to the north of the town a temple...More

If you go further down the beach you will find no one. Soft sand with relative calm waters. Not many people swim, not sure why. Clean and no one hassling or trying to sell you things.

Chao Samran Beach attracts way more Thais than it does overseas tourists, but it is a great place to spend a few hours (particularly if you are driving back from Hua Hin). You can rent beach mats and order Thai food and seafood from the...More
