A little bit boring, but if you want to get into the mood and spirit of the reason you came to visit, you will be walking on one of only 3 Fossil Shell Beaches on the Planet. Quite the experience if you think about it.

The views are the best bit you have to pay 200baht to go in and there is nothing really to see. We went down a walkway and walked round in the sea there are some stalls but other than that not much to do
