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.

Amazing that anyone could describe this as pleasant experience! The tiny scraps of ''beach" not covered by people, deck chairs, vendors, tables, etc., were smothered in litter and plastic waste of every conceivable description. Imagine sitting in a sandy carpark and you have the picture.

We stayed very close to Bang Saen beach and it was beautiful. Incredibly relaxed and fun with many great restaurants to the back of the beach as well as on the sea front. We will come again soon, highly recommended!

Very good mid week. Does get very busy on weekends. Lots of stalls and good restaurants. I like the pedestrian walkway that runs the length of the beach.

This area primarily caters for Thai families - wealthy ones mainly from Bangkok who can afford a beach side get away. So even finding an Australian TV channel would be a challenge. Internet access is quite good. Maybe it... More
