Fodor's Review

The northern half of this beautiful beach is a hit with with backpackers because it's lined with budget lodgings. The southern half, more popular with the package tourists, is lined with high-end resorts. There's a fair selection of restaurants all along the shore, and the usual water sports are available. The fine sand is a brilliant white and the waters are clear and usually calm. Chawaeng is a great swimming beach. Amenities: food and drink; water sports. Best for: swimming.
