This is my third time to koh larn and I always stay at this beach, it is the biggest sand beach in the island and the cleanest one as well. You have to keep in mind that the prices are also touristic the same as most of the island. On this beach you will have many many restaurants and hotels... More

The food here is cheaper than on Monkey Beach, but Monkey beach is by far better. Less people and Monkeys.

This is the best beach avaible around Pattaya, about 45 min. of ferry from Bali Hai pier. The sand is white and the water is clear, only bad is that there is not a organised cleaning of plastic debris that float near the beach.

Garbage everywhere in the beaches. Motorbike taxi drivers pushing all time. Food placed under your nose. Noisy people (locals and foreigners) with selfie sticks. Boats and water motorbikes engines screaming all the time. But the water is clean and transparent.

Kept away from the jet scooters didn't trust them after all the bad media but that just me. Lunch was some very nice Thai dishes and well priced also the beer prices was... More

Pictures are deceiving. It can get the nicest edit and can fake angles. I saw this beach for myself and yes, this is the worst white beach I have ever been. The white sand is undeniably fine. But the water is greasy. The tourist are littering. The Speedboats are parked everywhere. Not worthy to visit.

Full of rubbish and smelly. Not a nice beach at all, too many tourists destroyed this beach .. Maybe more nice in the high season but I not think that they are able to remove all the rubbish

This is the worst beach I've been in Thailand. When we arrive we were asked to sit at the bench with 100bht and the people here are rude as they are all business minded even talk rude and always say "you pay now". I have been to Phuket, krabi, Bangkok, Koh samui, Koh phangan, Surat Thani and I haven't meet... More
