  • I expected to see a beautiful beach like in the movies, but it is far from the beautiful beaches of Cuba. A thin ribbon of sand with old chairs and umbrellas and boats in quantity as well as a nice little human fauna. The water is inviting us there strolled a little and went back to the pool which was actually better.

  • Nice beach, very centralized in the city. Great sand. But very crowded every day all year.. Lots of shopping abilities along the beach, especially the South. If you want more quiet you should stay at the beach close north pattaya. The sea water isn't great, but somewhat good.
  • Enjoy Water sports, local street foods, shopping Street all are nearby. So many great options. Restaurant, coffee shops, ATM, hotel all along with beach side. Easily connected, tuk tuk is a perfect way to travel.
  • Nice beach where you can relax. Lot of shops, food stalls are there. good sand, pretty warm climate. Not advisable to swim but there are some activities are available like speed boat, parasailing..
  • Wonderful beach and beach road. But the beach is completely covered with food stalls shops and agents.
  • Nice view. But not ideal for swimming. The bars along the road running parallel to the beach are lively.

Where to stay in Pattaya

Stay near Walking Street for lodgings closest to Pattaya's famous nightlife. Head up the coast to find quieter and bigger rooms in budget hotels or the more expensive resort-style complexes. You can also look in Soi Buakhao, where backpacker hostels and economical hotels offer easy access to main attractions, activities, and facilities.
