  • Beach hard to get too and some rubbish. Rent snorkels for 200 baht!!!!! Expensive. We saw a few fish but sadly no sharks.

  • A small bay ruined by over-development of the Haad Tien resort. Dozens of wooden shacks crammed onto a small space, piped music and rules . You can visit the beach by paying a fee, but you are then...

  • You get to the beach via Rocky Beach Resort free of charge. The beach was very clean on my visit, very smooth sand, the trees at the beach provided shade - good for relaxing. I came here primarily to do snorkeling and look for turtles, didn't find one sadly, and I was pretty shocked to find that almost all of the coral was dead. Wouldn't recommend snorkeling here except for the chance to see turtles. If you want to go snorkeling and see LIVING corals and fish, go to Tanote Bay.
  • Beautiful beach accessed through steep steps by rocky resort, free entry. However, snorkelling wasn’t good, so rocky and shallow for majority of the bay, then once it gets deep all the coral is dead. Only saw one small shark in the shallow area. Would recommend for the beach only:)
