All the beaches of Pattaya and the best beaches of the resort - a description of personal experience

I already have beach reviews Phuket. Samui. Phangan. Pattaya. Koh Chang. Krabi. Phi Phi. Koh Lanta. Hua Hin and Ko lana<.htmla> (a small island near Pattaya). All reviews are detailed, with full descriptions and photos.

Pattaya is certainly not the best place tosecluded beach relaxation. If you need a tropical paradise "like in the picture", it is better to look for it on the islands. Pattaya beaches are crowded, noisy, with a developed beach infrastructure. On the central beaches, the water is often muddy, trash also comes across. There is a low tide season, during which the sea runs tens of meters from the coast. The sand is not white, but yellow or yellow-gray.

List of the best beaches of Pattaya

The most well-groomed of Pattaya beaches - Dongtan, the beach at Cape Pratamnak (this area is consideredthe most European and expensive). Palm grove, casuarina, carefully swept paths, the lack of a road with cars along the beach - all this is a plus for Dongtan

Also good for swimming north beach Wongamat and small wild beaches among the stones around the hotel Cape daraand on the cape between the beaches of Wongamat and the beach inthe center of Pattaya. High-rise buildings of expensive hotels are densely tuned along the Wongamat beach, so they try to keep it clean, but there is quite a lot of natural shadow.

Beach in the center of Pattaya it's more like an afternoon promenademeeting sunset and parties. Not everyone dares to swim here. Nevertheless, everything for a beach holiday is available here: palm lane, wide sidewalk, retail outlets on the beach with soft drinks, sun loungers under umbrellas. And a busy noisy road with high-rise hotels and shopping centers. Closer to the pier (from where you can sail on the ferry to Koh Lan with its azure water and white sand) Central Pattaya beach goes to Volkin Street.

A small beach at Cape Pratamnak, Cozy Beach, different in silence and privacy on the backgroundthe rest of the city beaches. Getting to it from other areas is quite difficult. Either you need to take a taxi or go on your own transport. Mostly tourists from neighboring hotels rest on Kozi Beach, the water here, however, is not crystal clear and a rainstorm goes straight to the sea at the edge of the beach. But in the morning there is a shadow of trees and a calm sea.

The most famous beach of Pattaya - Jomtien. Very long, therefore different, but alwayswith excellent infrastructure and with a road along the sea along the entire length of the beach. Mecca of wintering and longsters. However, there are guesthouses (closer to Dongtan) and hotels, primarily aimed at Russian tourists. The sea at Jomtien is dirty, but tourists still bathe. Winterers and locals prefer to go swimming outside the city - or the beaches of Na Jomtien (Ban Ampur. Bang Saray), or Military beach.

Before you go to my personal collectionbeaches of Pattaya, the most independent audience, I want to recommend RoomGuru - an excellent booking service, where often there are better deals on the hotel of your interest. Clicking the green button below this paragraph takes you to the RoomGuru page with Pattaya hotels.

Hotels in Pattaya>

All the beaches of Pattaya list is quite difficult, t.Because the coastline is long and by law all beaches are public, but in practice, if the relief allows you to limit the entrance to the beach, which is adjacent to the territory of a large hotel, the beach actually becomes private.

Beach of The Zign Hotel, Wong Prachan Beach

In the very north of Pattaya, a list of small beaches opens almost a small, almost private beach of the hotel. The zign and then behind him - the beach Wong Prachan (Crescent Moon), slightly longer than the previous one and overlooking Temple of truth. The entrance to the beach is through the hotel. Garden Sea View Resort. Both beaches are quite small and little known,because they are considered private. Few people want to go to the very north of the city and go to the beach through the hotel. However, such an arrangement also has advantages - relatively uncrowded, not littered beach and fairly clean sea.

Wongamat Beach

The main beach of the north of Pattaya, it is also calledNaklua beach. Since the beach overlooks the territory of expensive hotels, try to keep it clean. In some places it works better, in some worse. Along the beach there is a sidewalk, palm trees are planted, but not a lot of shadows. The strip of sand is very wide, and at low tide the sea goes even further and becomes quite shallow. During high water entry into the water is quite sharp.

Sun beds, massage and souvenirs on the beach is enough,In the part of the beach, which is closer to the center of Pattaya, there are several cafes and bars. Behind them begins a rocky cape, with huge boulders in the water and pretty beaches between them. There is a good view of the large arc of the Wongamat beach and high-rise hotels along it, lots of trees and almost complete silence. If you turn the cape, you can walk along the sea, well-groomed small parts of the beach, adjacent to expensive hotels, for example, Cape darainterspersed with littered wastelands andmounds of empty seashells among the stones. And on Wongamat and especially on the stone cape there are often impressive waves and wind. At low tide on the cape, large sharp stones, usually hidden by water, are exposed. The story of the beach with photos and detailed description.

Pattaya Beach

The beach in the center of Pattaya is rather a place of parties andconducting all sorts of noisy holidays, parties, sunset and night promenades. Few are bathing here, mostly local children. Many fishing boats at anchor, noisy highways and other urbanization, large expensive chain hotels such as Hilton and Holyday inn, Festival shopping centers and Mike Shopping Mall.

If you do not talk about the purity of water, which, toBy the way, it’s still not so bad looking, it’s necessary to keep an eye on the purity of the sand, on Wednesdays a day has been announced without sunbeds and umbrellas, along the whole beach there is a very wide palm walk with walkways. In general, this place has its own specific, but life-affirming atmosphere, a good option for meeting the sunset and picnic. The story of the beach with photos and detailed description.

Cozy Beach

A small beach on Cape Pratamnak, next to the hotel with the same name - Cozy Beach Hotel. From all sides it is surrounded by the slopes of a hill,overgrown with tropical vegetation, you can go downstairs by the stairs, a few spans. It is difficult to get to the beach without transport if you do not live nearby. Public transport does not go past, on foot from other areas to go far and through wastelands with construction sites, remains, either personal transport or a taxi.

Water on the beach is not much cleaner than on other Pattaya beaches, except that there will be less debris in the water than there is in Jomtien. On the one hand, the beach is closed by a large hotel complex on a hill, Royal Cliff Hotels Groupon the other hand, a deserted cape with treesstone loose in water. At this end of the beach, next to a stone spit, a rainwater falls out of the mountain into the sea, so it is better to swim in the middle or closer to the hotel Royal Cliff. In length, the beach is about half a kilometer wide, 20-25 meters wide, at low tide near the coast it becomes quite small, to the depth one must go far ahead ankle-deep in water.

Mostly on Cozy Beach swimming tourists fromnearby hotels.

Beach cafe "Cabbages & Condoms" and hotel Asia Pattaya

Beach at the hotel Asia Pattaya called private, but it’s easy to go throughTerritory cafe Cabbages & Condoms, no one asks usually those who walk through the large green area of ​​this restaurant.
