Sunbathing is the ideal activity here, especially during low tide, when the golden, sandy beach is flat and dry (and usually empty). The usual water activities like jet skiing and banana boating are available here, and are more enjoyable than in Hua Hin, as the beach and water are less crowded. The southern part of the beach ends at a big cliff, which has a tall, standing image of the Buddha. You can hike to the top of the hill, where you find a small Buddhist monastery and several restaurants with excellent views. Amenities: food and drink; water sports. Best for: walking.
