Growing up in Florida, I've been to several beaches. Pattaya beach was quite a disappointment. The beach was dirty and very small. Many locals kept trying to sell us different things (food, jewelry, massages, etc) while we were trying to relax. I'd recommend going elsewhere.

I look for clear, clean, calm waters and uncrowded, unspoiled beaches. This place is none of that. Polluted by all the people and boats and crowded with locals and tourists I'd just much rather not.

We have just arrived back from Pattaya and Jomtien beaches after spending 10 days there (10 days too many) and it was the most disgusting place we have ever been to. We've been to a lot of places around the world including Thailand, Koh Samui, Bangkok, Phuket. This is the only place we've ever visited where we have not swam... More

The pattaya beach is quite clean. Its not as happening as that of patong or coral island but the evenings can be spent there.

The beach along Pattaya wasn't very clean when we holidayed there in September 2016. I didn't go into the water due to the rubbish floating there. It's such a shame that it isn't looked after better

Don't go to Pattaya if you want a beach holiday. Not much of a beach to speak of. The sea is full of speed boats so I didn't even want to enter the water plus during our stay we saw a black substance being pumped into the water from the back of a truck.

I would not dip my head in this water as it was brown. The beach was decent and cleaned up from 10 years ago when I last visited. Beach road had plenty of space for a nice stroll. We arrived during the time they had their seafood fest going on, so it was perfect timing for food and leisure strolls... More

You will be spoilt with the choices of BBQ , sea food , cool beer , souvenirs , local delights brought right to bench while you enjoy your sun tanning after a swim. The close proximity of hotels , departmental stores and a long stretch of shops along the road transform Pattaya Beach into a tourist paradise.
