I was there in low season, and the beach was pretty busy. Beautiful white sand and safe bathing. The beach is backed up by the main town; there are many resorts, hotels and hostels also there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Not the place...More

If you expect relax, fresh air, quiet...this is not a correct place for your visit. I recommend Ao Prao.

This beach is not my choice. Too many tourist that stand like ants on the beach or are in the sea. Go at least two beaches south to be in a more relaxed space.

Nice sand. Clean beach. And water is warm and clean. Only problem is that many speed boats come in and out all day. Dangeres for people swimming. 5PM all restaurants put tables on the beach with candle light. Very romantic.

Why do people go here? Why stay here? Samet has dozens of gorgeous beaches. I am forever shocked that people continue to visit the tourist-trap hell of Hat Sai Kaew.
