The Noppharathara Beach is a bit ahead of Aonang beach but not maintained well. There beach is murky with lots of trash. It could become an alternate to Aonang if maintained well. Also, the Aonang night market & pier are very close to Noppharathara Beach.

Dirty beach, grey sand. Stones, wood, debris shells all sorts lying about. Walked for miles hoping it would improve further along the beach but no.... Not a beach I expected to see in Thailand at all.

I did not like the beach at all. It gets very muddy when the tide goes down and also lot of trash. When the tide is up, beach is very narrow. Theres not nice to be in this beach.

There is absolutely nothing nice about it unless you go for walking or jogging. The only decent place to look up is the Holiday Inn Resort nearby the beach. You need to pay 100 Baht for Tuk Tuk to Ao Nang beach or simply walk...More

Although it is a little out of the centre of town this is our favourite beach. Because it isn’t the main one it is quieter and therefore more relaxed. It has the long tail boat pier at one end and the main pier at the...More

Good beach to chill, you can rent a chaise lounge chair for 3 dollars a day or bring your mat or blanket to relax, a few vendors but nothing high pressure and the corn on the cob deaf vendor is a plus for 50 baht,...More

A good walk from Aonang, but worth it. This side is the more expensive side in case of hotels and stuff. All the speedboat tours goes from this side as there is a little river making a fine lagune on the side of the beach....More
