If you expect relax, fresh air, quiet...this is not a correct place for your visit. I recommend Ao Prao.

This beach is not my choice. Too many tourist that stand like ants on the beach or are in the sea. Go at least two beaches south to be in a more relaxed space.

Why do people go here? Why stay here? Samet has dozens of gorgeous beaches. I am forever shocked that people continue to visit the tourist-trap hell of Hat Sai Kaew.

This once perfect beach has become the top destination for chinese tour groups. To my regret it has become noisy, dirty and expensive. I recommend you stay away.

As infamous for its beautiful chrystal sands,the impression of it was quite awfull unfortunately. The noise of hords of tourists arriving and leaving by motor speedboats is quite disturbing. Only dusk and dawn could be bearable.
