At length a little over 500 m of a flat coastline,in width from 40 m and less, on average about 20 m. At the Pratamnak beach there comes 5th Pratamnak street, we can assume that the main and central. That is, the beach is also central to the area. Although there is also a beach on Pratamnak Cozy Beachon the other side of the cape, and a small beach at the Cabbages & Condoms cafe and the Asia Hotel (it may seem that it is private and closed, but no, you can go easily).
And yet, Pratamnak Beach is the most accessible of all.all available in the area. Where the road leads to it, it is a wide area with sand, clean, no shadow. On the left, trees grow with secluded paths below them, further, beyond a small stone spit begins Dongtan beach, and behind it - Jomtien.
In the other direction, to the right - more neglectedplaces with garbage, there is also a gazebo, large and sharp stones in the water. They overlook the cottages in the distance, this is the territory of the cafe and hotel Cabbages & Condoms. In the right, northern part of the Pratamnak beach there are few people and you can sit at sunset almost alone.
However, just in the Pratumnak area, attacks on tourists are regularly carried out (the area is quite respectable, there is something to profit), so you should not relax and linger much.
Sunset, depth and waves
Since the beach is a direct sequel Dongtana, the same applies to himDongtan. The nuance is that to the right of the 5th street exit to the beach, there are stones in the water. In the center - buoyed swimming area. On the border with Dongtan, on the left, there is a small stone cape, but with it near the entrance to the water is convenient, sandy.
In the center of the beach - sand, with high waterquite a sharp approach, at low tide smoother. Not in season, since the end of February, a strong wind is blowing, often there are waves and all the garbage is beating to the shore. This applies not only to Pratamnak beach, but also to Dongtan and to some extent to Jomtien.
Sun beds and shade
Immediately opposite the exit is a large open area, on the sides there are a lot of greenery, palm trees and other trees grow, and under them are sun beds with umbrellas. Pleasant shadow is and closer to Dongtanu. To the right of the entrance to the beach, behind the trees, there is again a large open area and a gazebo. Sun beds are in the center of the beach and to the left, in the side where the Dongtan. On the right you can say a wild beach.
On the fifth street, just before going to the beach, there is7-Eleven. Further on this street there are shops and a market and a cafe, all the tourist infrastructure. On the beach itself, you can find only drinks, quite simple snacks, which bring straight to the lounger, but traders-traffickers go periodically. Nothing else.
On the right side of the beach you can have picnics, it’s like a wild beach. On the alley closer to Dongtanu more tourist infrastructure. There is a massage, for example. But in general, the beach is small and more for relaxation, not rave. Pratamnak Beach borders the beach Dongtan (to get there, you must go to the left from the exit of the 5th street to the sea), on the cape separating the beaches there are windsurfs and jet skis.
There is also a water park Pattaya Park with a tower, offering excellent views of the city. From it you can still go down the cable car directly to the sea.
Houses and hotels on the beach
From the north, as if on the corner, on a small cliff is one of the most expensive hotels in Pattaya - Golden Cliff, next to it is the Royal Beach View Hotel
In the center of the beach - Centara Grand Phratamnak Pattaya
and on the first line are two high-rises - Ban Hard U Thong Condominium
and Adriatic Palace Pattaya
From the south, in the direction of Dongtan Beach and Pattaya Park, there are several more expensive hotels - The Heritage Pattaya Beach Resort
and on the border of two beaches - Majestic Residence Pattaya
. All these are large expensive hotel complexes and first-line condos.
Along the fifth street of Pratumnak and around, in the depths,there is still a lot of housing. Both hotels and condos for the long term. There are few houses for rent on Pratumnak, at least at affordable prices, mostly they are still expensive villas and mansions. In general, Pratamnak is considered an expensive, “European”, tourist area and at the same time many Russians traditionally rest here.
The map shows that Pratamnak Beach and the nearby, Dongtan, here are presented as one beach. All that belongs to the beach Pratamnak - above and to the left of the water park Pattaya Park on the map.

How to find the beach
Getting to the beach is easy: 5th street of Pratamnak goes directly to it. If you take the 5th to the sea and immediately after 7-Eleven turn right, then less than a hundred meters after the Hotel Centare, immediately after Mom Chalay there will be another exit to the beach - to the left. According to Pratamnak, there is no public transport, so either a taxi or on foot.
Unless, of course, settle is not nearby. Also, good options for moving around Pattaya are taxis (both in the form of cars and in the form of a tuk-tuk) and mototaxi.
Also on the beach Pratamnak you can go through Dongtan beach, to the top of which you can reach from the city center on a scheduled tuk-tuk. Along DongtanaTrue, the road is not passing, this is a pedestrian zone.

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.
Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper
First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
