How to find the beach

Find this little beach in two ways. The first option is the road leading to the hotel Tri Trang Beach</a>, there is parking for cars, as well aspaid shower and toilet. The second one is a passage through a hole in the fence; in this case, a huge old tree can be used as a guide, which is carefully surrounded with a fence. It is more convenient of course to use the first civilized way.
