The beach itself is beautiful. It’s quite long and sand is nice but there are lots of tourists like on every popular beach in Thailand.

Found this beach very busy, not that clean and if the tide goes out not great for swimming. Nice enough if you are staying in one of the hotels but otherwise I wouldn't go out of your way to visit

We visited on Xmas day last year after a 7 island tour. It was amazing to be fair. Slightly crowded but the atmosphere adds to the experience. BBQ on the beach watching the sunset.. what more do you want?!

It a beautiful small beach accessable by long tail boat. The beach has beautiful clean white sand and one can go kayaking too for minimum price. There are a few restaurants on the beach that offer good food.

I did not see any lockers but if you only take a small amount of money for food and drinks and leave valuables at your accommodation. Bags and towels etc seem pretty safe on the beach, we left ours but we were only swimming... More
