Where would you want to take your holidays in Thailand for the best beaches?
Combined with tropical weather and luxury accommodations, the beaches in Pattaya, Thailand offers great reward for your money. Before considering which place to sleep, eat and play, it might be a good idea to look at differing beach amenities that make each one so unique. Let’s take a look at 2 beaches in and near Pattaya to see what all the fuss is about.
The public beaches, Pattaya and Jomtien, deserve an honorable mention in any travel book. They make for the best low-cost day trip for any water enthusiast! Both beaches rate high with travelers mostly for their cleanliness, good weather and long, pristine shoreline.
Pattaya Beach Greets Watersport Enthusiasts
Imagine stepping onto a golden beach bordered by blue waters and scattered islands. You look down and notice your feet surrounded by shells and rocks. And, discover that this morning the tide is low revealing fabulous sandbars to explore. The beach by itself is a great experience, but only the beginning of what Pattaya is famous for. Besides a wild nightlife, the beach boasts tons of water activities, including jet skis, yacht rentals, beach massages, paragliding, deep water scuba diving and fast speed boat rides to the bordering islands. Pattaya beach was recently ranked as number 9 on Trip Advisor out of 40 attractions.
Jomtien Beach Gives A Taste of Culture
Located just 10 minutes from the Pattaya center, a visit to Jomtien beach offers a similar excursion for water enthusiasts like its northern half. But, visitors comment that Jomtien is a bit more relaxing as it provides a better place for swimming, and has access to more shade, food and drink for tourists. The locals are friendly, meaning less hassle by vendors, which leaves a charming memory for any traveler. A day at this beach need not be expensive either. Excellent food, including crab claws, bbq king prawns, corn-on-cob, coconut drinks in a coconut shell, and spring rolls, comes at a cheap price. It may just be the perfect budget family getaway in this part of Thailand.
You will enjoy the close proximity to both the conveniences of the city and the water activities of the beach from any Pattaya hotel. In busy seasons, crowds clutter the beaches with umbrellas and vendors seeking to earn tourist dollars. As always, stay alert, and be aware of scammers looking to steal your moolah! Overall, the Pattaya and Jomtien beaches are some of the best places for adventure and holidays to Thailand!
