  • A very busy beach where it is difficult to get a place. The speed boats for parasailing and jet ski rental companies were very intrusive, unsafe and were especially visitors to last. Nice for an evening stroll but otherwise avoid ...

  • A must see at night safe to walk entertaining and cheap items to buy. Only the walk is very taxing else it great  more »
  • Someone the girls, ladyboys finds many people, loud music, lots of booze and drugs class here with entry of his intoxication a paradise will... as a simpleton, considering how well it saw. If there is a place on Earth, the aliens want to live undetected, then they remain here still undetected with security. I started at times the impression to have... no matter where, seen whole groups of other planets from the beach up to the last alley. When you consider that people actually hours in the aircraft spend here call this to best vacation, that rate... Moreover with 5 full stars is really gross! The least understand I could however, the numerous hilarious couples who run with children in all age groups through these streets... remains better at home and invested your money in meaningful trips

  • This beach is much better than I expected. We'll keep, very clean and beautiful warm water. My only problem with it is the fact that it is just too busy. It's difficult to find a space to sit on the beach. There are masses of people. This isn't a complaint, it's just an observation but it is why I moved on to other beaches further south.
  • Overall Patong beach is fantastic! Great for adventures and young life style, with many food, bar and many other places to enjoy your night. The only problem is all about prices, they are rapidly growing up, because they know that tourist will always pay for it, still worth it tho.
  • As a beach nothing special...no clear waters, as crowded as it gets , locals trying to sell u everything on a triple price. Never give more than the half of the price offered...still a very good profit for them. No official touristic authority...everybody do whatever they want trying to rip off the tourist. At least is cheap so let them steal you a little bit...is like leaving an extra tip!
  • I'm going to write about the beach Overall it is fairly clean and the water is clear The beach is quite in the morning and slowly gets busier after lunch. The beach can be very crowded so try and go early in the day to get a good spot if you want to lay in the sun or shade. When the beach is full of people, the street vendors will start trying to sell basically everything and anything to you from sunblock, umbrellas, drinks, clothes to water sport activities, Therefore it can be so stressful in order to relax properly!
  • Very well maintained and very clean. There are many vendors on the shore which serve beer and local delicacies. Local bike taxi and cabbies might create some nuesence at entrance, but, once you get into the beach, you are safe. Also, there is a regular free shuttle service to a couple of beaches from this place. Especially, don't miss the one to Paradise Beach. There are many restaurants are shops very near to the beach for your shopping and eating needs.
