This beach appears greatly improved. It's easy to get to from Bangkok. Not too crowded either. Go there if you get the chance.

Over populated and pollution is out of control... banana boats over priced but you hold on because you don’t want to hit the water... the food is good though but in all give it a miss

Bang Saen Beach comprises of a narrow stretch of beach. It is located about an hour from Pattaya City. IMO there is nothing special about this beach.

Well worth the drive from either Bangkok or Pattaya, has a collection of hotel/resorts and bar/restaurants for all budgets with plenty of parking spaces and an unspoken stretch of beach. More relaxed and unspoiled than Jomtien ideal for a weekend getaway.
