Positive surprise after experiences in Hua Hin area. Water was clean and also the beach was tidy. Of course there is people and a lot restaurants, but they are organized in way that I did not feel them disturbing.

Stayed in low season (July) and beach was quiet with swimming only possible on less windy days and when tides were right. Flags are used by most hotels on the beach front and life guards were around

Booked into this bay based on reviews, unfortunately our accommodation was not right on the beach but this turned out ok as we were close to some good restaurants (eg Pooh and friends). The beach is good, good waves for body surfing and boogie boarding,...More

This is a third time staying at Bangtao Bay Beach. We keep returning because of the variety it offers and the beauty it frames. The six-plus km long beach is home to everything from high end resorts to mid-range bungalows to long stretches of emptiness....More
