I am saddened to see how much dirtier this beach has become. I probably will not go back after this visit and I certainly would not swim in the water. Too much garbage floating around Very sad.

If you for some reason decide to visit Pattaya other then being an sextourist this is the better beach of the two bigger ones. The better part starts were the main road turns and don't run along the beach.

I think the answer would be no, you can always just walk into the bigger hotels and take a chance.

The water is not rough but it's not the clearest water like you have other places since the beach is man made and not a natural beach. It's otherwise safe and a lot of kid swim there.
