We paid 800 baht for this abysmal trip. Lots of junk shops and not much of a beach. Go else where, anywhere!! Toilets were so bad I waited til I left!

It would cost you 200 baht to get into this place which can be in and out in a heartbeat. U can't go anywhere near enough to look at the fossils so it looks like dull slabs of concrete. Avoid.

There were so many people when I was there. The beach itself was a bit dirty. It could be clean up more by local authority. Otherwise, it will be fad out soon.

i went to this beach whilst the other half was scuba diving. I got the songthauew from Ao Nang (30 baht each way). It was a saturday so there were lots of families having picnics. i paid 100 baht to get into the 'attraction' and I agree with other posters that the fossil beach looks very much like a lump...

Despite the warnings here, we decided to go there at the end of the day. We got there just before the dark, when it was already closed - so we fortunately we didn't pay for it. I think they wanted 400 Baht for that "rock table", described by one or two informational tables. Maybe the place has some historical value,... More

We were staying at a resort close to this attraction so luckily it was not out of our way. Unless you have specific interest in this type of geological formation, give this a pass.

We visited this place when we were staying in Ao Nang. We went by tuk-tuk, having agreed on a return price. The entrance fee was 200 bath according to the signs, but we were asked to pay 100 without bargaining. We don't mind to pay to see attractions, it costs money to maintain the sights and having someone to guard... More

This place is terrible, nothing there. Just a small fossil base which leads to water, literally. And, they even charge you an entrance fee. Avoid and save yourself a drive to no where!
