Fodor's Expert Review Serendipity Beach
Neighboring Ochheuteal, this is a favorite with backpackers. Over the past few years a slew of bungalows, budget guesthouses, and earthy eateries have been added to the landscape, and the beach is now backed by one linear track of restaurants, bars, and cafés. Hawkers and beggars regularly patrol the walkway. There are constant rumors of large-scale development, but so far big resort development has stayed away. Boats for the islands, diving trips, and tours all leave from the pier to the right of the beach, and there is a constant rumble of Jet Skis, too close to the shore. After sunset fireworks herald the nighttime action. Amenities: food and drink; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers.
