46 miles from Ao Chalong
Recommended during the northeast monsoon season only, anchor close inshore in 5 metres on a sandy bottom opposite the Pimalai Resort and Spa, a 5-star resort nestled amongst the foliage against the beach.
Visiting yachts are welcomed BUT may use the floating jetty at the north end of the resort ONLY if they intend to use the resort restaurant. The jetty is dismantled and taken away at the end of each high season. The original parts of the jetty are black and can get scorching hot in the midday sun. Tie close to the beach and wear shoes.
At the northern end of the beach is the bar and restaurant ‘Why Not’. A firm favourite with locals and visitors alike, the helpful staff here offer great service with a smile. Without doubt the best venue on this beach. A bit further north, at the very end of the beach, is a tidal creek running to a small waterfall.
