Walked from our resort along the beach to the end. Definitely some parts nicer than others. Heaps of swimmers, sunbathers, people selling things etc. Easy walk & lots to see.

We read that this was the nicest beach on the island. So wrong. Cyclone pabuk had passed the week before and there was some damage, but the beach and water were disgusting. In addition the beach restaurants were unremarkable and uninviting. Better beaches are at...More

I would stay towards the Lamai end of Chaweng- the beach is better. If you can find the locals market the prices are much better. There are plenty of shops, bars and cafes all along Chaweng though
