13 miles from Ao Chalong
This is a favourite day excursion from Patong and Karon, since access by road is difficult. Anchor in 10 metres on sand.
A small restaurant caters to visitors. Off the small headland at the south of the bay, there is good snorkelling and diving. In the deeper water off the north headland, the diving is excellent.
To the north, on the other sandy beach, is the Patong Merlin Resort, accessible at high tide. From here it is a short walk over the headland to the beaches on the southern end of Patong Bay.
