Amazing beach, not crowded, you can entry from the villa resort from JasomBay, but they charge you 200BTH. Or from Sky Bar and walk a nit, then it is for free.

Just 20-25 minute walking distance from Mae Haad pier. Great for snorkelling. There is a restaurant right next to this beach (southern direction) where you can by drinks and food on reasonable prices.
