May not be the best beach in the world but.... Sitting in the restaurant overseeing the beach, sipping a fruit cocktail or munching on some barbecued chicken, away from the hassle and bustle of the roads just behind is definitely cool for a well deserved...More

You have to be totally covered to be able to use this little beach! Could be good if you want to decrease you body temperature but not fency at all!

I have seen many beaches . I feel it very small one . Good beach for this small city. I did not like this beach . Nothing special. Not worthy for tourists.

Didn't expect much but it was lower than my expectations. A very sad "beach" with no view, trash everywhere. Do not waste your time coming here. I came here with some hope that it's a decent beach through some reviews here. I couldn't even spend...More

Its artificial. Simple as that. And in holidays and afternoons, the beach is so much crowded, you'd feel better is fish market of Thailand! The newly built rasfannu beach is better than this one.
