All beaches of Pattaya
Where in Pattaya clean sea? What are the best beaches in Pattaya? This question concerns every tourist. Do not worry! We visited all the beaches of Pattaya and rested on each of them. All beaches of Pattaya are different, with their pluses and minuses.
There is no better place to start exploring the beaches of Pattaya than the most popular and lively beach in the city - Pattaya Beach.
The length of Pattaya Beach is as much as 4 km. In the north, it runs into a cape, after which the Wongamat beach begins. The southern part of Pattaya Beach is bordered on Walking Street. The width of Pattaya Beach is on average 5-15 m. Along the entire beach of Pattaya Beach there is a pedestrian and automobile road.
On many Internet sites you can read about Pattaya Beach, that the sand on the beach is yellow and shallow, the entrance to the sea is smooth, and the bottom is covered with silt. In fact, after a recent reconstruction on the beach of Pattaya, the beach is only white sand, from the bottom of the Gulf of Siam, there is no silt at the bottom.
In addition, guides in Pattaya often say that Pattaya Beach closes twice a week, all umbrellas and sun beds are removed from the beach. Actually the beach does not close these days. Umbrellas and sun beds are cleaned for the convenience of tourists, so that you can enjoy the beautiful views and take the best photos for memory.
In high season, there are a lot of people on the beach of Pattaya Beach, not only tourists come here, but also locals, and on the weekend Pattaya Beach is also visited by Bangkok residents. On the beach they sell food, souvenirs, clothes and other things. Sun beds with umbrellas on Pattaya Beach can be rented for 50 baht.
In the evening, sun beds with umbrellas are removed. Most tourists go to bars, restaurants, nightclubs. But to enjoy the silence will not work, because the music in the neighboring bars is very loud.
Across the road from Pattaya Beach you will find many shopping centers and shops. Everywhere sell food and drinks.
There are many places of interest near Pattaya Beach: the observation deck, the Big Buddha Temple, the Ripley Museum and the Teddy Bear Museum.
Jomtien Beach is located in South Pattaya, 2 km south of the city center. This is one of the largest beaches, its length along the sea is about 5 km. Some parts of Jomtien Beach are narrow - the loungers are practically near the water. Despite the large number of tourists, Jomtien Beach is quite clean and well maintained.
On the beach a wide range of water activities. Surfing, skyting, "banana", Jomtien has all the necessary equipment. In walking distance from Jomtien Beach there are many cafes and restaurants where you can eat quickly and cheaply. The evening on Jomtien Beach is very romantic - a big moon, palm trees, the sound of the surf, a white and golden sandy beach.
But the sea water on Jomtien Beach is rather muddy, although it is cleaner than on most other beaches in Pattaya.
Naklua Beach has a length of more than 3 km. Here, locals like to relax and fish.
The Naklua Beach is sandy, but the bottom is pebbly, so you should swim carefully so as not to get injured.

In the middle of Wong Amat Beach, in the shade of palm trees, there is a small market with fruit, tourist goods and offers of massage, etc. In the midst of the tourist season on Wong

Beaches of Koh Lan Island
Koh Lan Island is only 40 minutes by ferry from Pattaya, but the beaches and water are much cleaner than Pattaya.
Tawayen Beach is located next to one of the two piers where the ferries from Pattaya arrive. Tawayen Beach itself is very beautiful: white sand and azure water, everything is like in tourist booklets, but this beach is constantly crowded. A lot of sun loungers, shops and cafes, a lot of people in the water and on the shore, people constantly arriving and leaving the island, all this will not allow you to relax and unwind.
Tonglang Beach is located near Tawayen Beach, and you can walk to Tonglang Beach by a concrete path along the sea. Tonglang Beach is quieter and calmer than on Tawayen. Thonglang Beach is just a few inexpensive cafes. Large white sand, clear water. There is a strip of sharp stones in the water near the shore. Tonglang Beach often has strong waves.

Sun beds with umbrellas and standard beach activities.
Beaches of Ko Phai Island
From the point of view of a beach holiday, the most attractive place near Pattaya will be Koh Phai Island. On the high-speed catamaran, you can reach the island in the same 40 minutes as Koh Lan island, but unlike Koh Lan, you can enjoy crystal clear water, incredibly beautiful corals, soft fine white sand on Ko Phai. The island is uninhabited, there are no crowds of tourists, only peace and quiet. The island is a national park of natural heritage of Thailand, and entrance to it is paid - 150 baht per person. In our opinion, the beaches of Koh Phai Island are the best among all the beaches near Pattaya.
On the island of Ko Phai 4 beaches:
1. Bamboo Beach - thickets of bamboo come close to the beach.
2. Navy Beach - deserted beach, with crystal clear water. Due to the fact that this is a military beach, most of it is closed to tourists. The open part of the beach is rocky.
3. Coral Beach - Incredibly beautiful corals, snorkeling and fishing.
4. White sand Beach - on this beach, as the name implies, fine, dazzling white sand, and emerald water.
In Pattaya and especially on the islands of Pattaya there are many white beaches, stunningly beautiful coral reefs and crystal clear sea water, which beach or island to choose depends only on your preferences.
