Great beach although some of the guests from the hotels nearby seemed to think they had more rights to the shade than us! At the south end there are a beach cafe and fruit cocktail stand both of which are excellent.

Nice beach, was very dissapointed to see lots of careless tourists leaving plastic spoons, straws and other small items on the sand to wash into the ocean. Hundreds of tons of plastic go into our oceans every year. When will we stop destroying this planet?

Smaller and less crowded beach compared to Kata beach to the north. It is surrounded by the resorts but is still quite accessible. Sand is clean, water is clearer than Kata beach's. Great place for couples and families to hang out.

Hi. I apologize I am just seeing your question. I honestly did not notice any but I was not looking for them. I literally just swam in the warm waters.

Yes agree with other reply. Taxi tuk tuk is the best bet. Negotiate a fair price. 500baht is standard fare. Beautiful beach, worth the visit, but not to sure during monsoon season.
