Busy, busy busy and overpriced. The beach itself is really nice with fine white sand but it is pretty overcrowded with masses of Chinese tourists on tour. Best idea is to arrive by the 30THB ferry, hire a bike and go to explore the rest of the island.

A great place to getaway from the busy city life of Pattaya. Easy to reach. Clean water. There is a point just before you reach the beach with a temple on top of the hill and an overview of the beach. Water activities available at the beach.

Local Sea Food around the beach was excellent. So many water sports to try but just relaxing at the beach is also enough.

We took the ferry from Pattaya to Koh Laan. The ride costs 30b each & takes about 40 minutes. It wasn't a rough journey, so that was pretty easy. When we got to the Island we took an offer for overnight accommodation & a motorcycle for 1200b. We then rode to this beach. It has nice sand & clean water.... More

This is my third time to koh larn and I always stay at this beach, it is the biggest sand beach in the island and the cleanest one as well.
