Ban Amphur Beach - a chance for silence near Pattaya

Pleasant quiet place with almost noextraneous sounds, only the sound of the wind and the rustle of palm trees. You can sit under an umbrella in a beach cafe (plastic chairs, high table) or in the same place, under umbrellas on the beach, in lounge chairs. From the tray under the palm trees, fresh coffee is sold, and children can run on the playground next to the beach.

There is a gazebo and a palm alley, plenty of space forbeach games in the sand. Cleanliness is monitored, but half of the beach is not well-groomed and slightly overgrown, but you can enjoy complete privacy. A good place not far from Pattaya with an almost island clean water and a pleasant atmosphere.

There are not many traders sticking tosunbathers, few foreign tourists. There are few people here, especially on weekdays. Thais come over the weekend. Although there is some kind of life only in the more or less developed northern part, where the 32nd lane (alley) goes to the beach. The entire southern half of the beach is almost wild, there is nothing at all.

Beach description

The beach is 800 meters long, in the north it rests onthe pier, fencing off the exit of the river into the sea, further north, closer to Pattaya, begins the marina and yacht club. In the south, the beach ends in a cape. It also has a good country restaurant Rimpa Lapin, from there a beautiful view of the beach, the sea and the silhouette of the city in the distance.

The middle part of the beach is very wide, 30 meters.bare sand. There is a space with umbrellas, even wider, but everything is forced by sun loungers, umbrellas come right to the water. Most of the beach is almost uninhabited, it is 10 to 20 meters wide, but there is trash and sand overgrown with grass.

Sunset, depth and waves

Sunset in the water is not smooth, almost immediately deep. At low tide, on the contrary, it is very far to go to the depth, the water is slightly less than knee-deep. At the end of the season (end of February-March) there are waves and strong wind. At low tide near the shore and in the surf may appear sea urchins and other animals, shells.

As the water is cloudy, walk barefoot on the bottomsuch days are dangerous - you can hurt your leg. In the season in good weather with quiet water, it is clean and pleasant. There is almost no garbage in the water, silt too. The sand is light yellow, fine. On the shore come across broken shells of various kinds.

Sun beds and shade

100 m beach, close to the pier, just oppositeParking - solid chaise lounges under umbrellas, right there, between the beach and the road is growing palm avenue, along which stand the trays with food and drink. Opposite the 32nd street entrance to the beach there is an arbor, behind which a very wide and bare part of the beach stretches to the south, without sun beds and vegetation.

Along it, palm trees are planted in neat rows, underthey have a narrow walkway with a few benches where it is nice to sit. The alley is located far from the water, since the strip of sand is very wide in this place, but on a hot afternoon it is better than the open sun. Further south, to the cape, the beach is not very well maintained, completely deserted, in places the sand is overgrown with a local loach. But complete solitude and silence.

Over the most part of the beach there are gates and overgrowntropical vegetation fences large condos and hotels, which are located slightly in the depths, quite far from the water and do not catch the eye, do not spoil privacy.

Hotels in Pattaya>

Be sure (and I insist) check availabilitydiscounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. It will quickly and simply show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. In Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com that are much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.
