The Beaches of Pattaya

Pattaya Beach is a resort area not actually famous for its beaches; it is much more famous for its nightlife. The nightlife is, of course, great, but the beaches are perhaps better and more varied than people give them credit for. For many visitors to Pattaya, however, the only beach they have contact with is the main beach – “Pattaya Beach” – which is a 4 kilometer stretch of beach that runs along the main part of Pattaya City. There are other beaches to enjoy in the area such as Jomtien Beach, Na Jomtien Beach, Dong Tan Beach, Wong Amat Beach and the beaches of Ko Larn Island.

Pattaya Beach
the main beach in the area, Pattaya Beach proper, is a narrow, four kilometer stretch of sand which borders the major business and entertainment area of Pattaya City. At high tide, the beach is very narrow and appears to be washing away. At many places on the beach, the umbrellas and chairs are only two to three deep. At low tide...[+]

Jomtien Beach
this beach is located south of Pattaya Beach, just over the Pratunak Hill, a five to ten minute baht bus ride from the intersection of South Pattaya Road and the second beach road. Jomtien Beach is often considered to be the entire stretch of beach south of Pattaya although actually it is the stretch between the police stations where the Jomtien Beach Road intersects Thepprasit and Chaiyapruk roads. It is generally nicer and better than Pattaya Beach. It is longer (six kilometers versus four kilometers), wider, cleaner, quieter...[+]

this beach runs for about a kilometer north of the Dong Tan Police Station - where Theprasit Road intersects with Jomtien Beach Road. It is often considered to be a part of Jomtien Beach, although it is wider and has more trees than Jomtien Beach. Traffic is prohibited along most of the beach, and this helps create a very nice atmosphere. Jet skiis and water sports are present...[+]

Na Jomtien Beach
this beach begins at the intersection of Jomtien Beach Road and Chaiyapruek Road, where the south police box is located. It runs for six kilometers until it is interrupted by natural barriers. For the first 300 to 400 meters, the beach is just like Jomtien Beach, without the chains of bright, fluorescent buoys, but the beach gets more and more narrow...[+]

Wong Amat Beach
this beach is located in the town of Naklau Beach, directly north of Pattaya. This three kilometer beach is fairly narrow – in some places the ocean has washed away the brick walkway - but is clean and fairly quiet as there is no vehicular traffic on or near the beach, and luxury hotels block general entrance to the beach. There are also no vendors or masseuses continually harassing guests as they are bunched, along with restaurants ...[+]

Ko Larn Island
this is a four square kilometer island located about 7.5 kilometers south of Pattaya Beach and is easily accessed by a cheap ferry boat which one can catch at the end of the Walking Street at the main pier. There are six clean, white sand beaches on Ko Larn and the water is also very clean ...[+]
