Not one of the top beaches in the world

It is a long but narrow beach that does not get a lot of care. Can get pretty trashy during the day. A lot of freelancers hang out at the beach in the evening. I dont think tge... read more

Very beautiful and clean beach. I wish we could spend more time there. One should spend at least a whole day at the beach if time is not a constraint.

If you're visiting Pattaya to go to the beach then I think you'll be disappointed. I really don't know if you could swim here but with all the boat activity I don't know if you'd want to. Your view of the ocean will be taken up with the hundreds of boats either anchored off shore or driving customers back and... More

Thailand have so many great beaches. But Pattaya is NOT one of them. If you are going for a beach vacation, i strongly suggest you go somewhere else

You have to catch a boat to get to the island. Boat ride is choppy but that's expected. Wasn't suprised when we got there that you had to pay to hire chairs and also if you wanted to shower or use the toilet that you had to pay. The activities that were offered were jetski and something called the banana... More

Nice to walk the boardwalk. Not much swimming - Check the water quality first. There are some massage vendors there.

Nothing like the beachs in patong, they have lots of speed boats anchored along the beach. It's not a beach you can relax on

The Coral Island beach was not better than this. This beach is just and ordinary beach. Bathing is also not allowed here. We found only a few people on this beach, nothing exciting here.

It's not all "white sand and blue water" but good enough for getting the pleasure of completely submerging yourself into the great warmth of the silky water. Gets deep rather fast, so keep an eye on your kids, always!
