This beach is very much less quieter than the Pattaya beach and is also much cleaner and the water is filled with less junk than it.It is also a good destination to swim or relax around the beach as it is filled with less people and is less commercialized than its neighbor.There are plenty of cheap Thai snacks available from...

While Pattaya Beach is famous for its extraordinary nightlife, Jomtien Beach is a quiet ,sleepy area that fits families . So if you are a bachelor, go to Pattaya, if you are a family , go to Jomtien. If you want some night fun , you can take a pick up van taxi and go to Pattaya Walking Street in... More

In case you are looking for a beach experience in pattaya then Jomtien can be the option. I personally didnt like pattaya beach at all, in fact its not even closed to being called a beach. Jomtien is a decent beach with very good properties and eatries around.

Jomtien Beach is a long strip of clean sand and blue looking sea with interrmittent netting for swimming. A road runs along it and across from the beach are a 1000 restaurants and outdoor places for sipping a cold drink and watching the blue water and palm trees and people sitting/lying under umbrellas on the sand. Jomtien has it all... More

Not the best sand (coarse) and dirty Nothing special. Prefer beaches further south. Lots of massages and chair rentals available on the beach if that's what you're looking for. Tons of restaurants available along the boardwalk.

The beach is there. More protected than before from jetskis is an appreciated improvement. We hope the sea is clean and the sand beach maintained accordingly. The line of trees makes a lot of difference and is so useful for walks...

I just purchased a Condo on Jomtien Beach and the main reason was because the place is quieter, the water tests much cleaner etc etc etc. The beach dining needs to be encountered with caution as there are some really crappy "street food" places. The more established places are good. Avoid the seafood place close to the police station as... More

Dirty, bad, sad! Been here last year, thought-ok , they're in the middle of the ongoing works at the beach road and the beach itself, spent here 2 months and got back home, naively believed it would be much better next time. Well, the next time has come and we disappointedly found out the things have gone worse!! The beach... More

Most of the restaurants and shops on the Jomtien Beach front are smaller and older than those found at Pattaya Beach. The ocean is calmer and appears to be cleaner than Pattaya. However, there are few deckchairs, water sports, etc. If you want to stay away from the busy life in Pattaya, Jomtien is for you.
