KOH LIPE SOUTH
Anchor in 20-25metres (certainly no less than 15) off the fast-rising fringe reef on a sandy bottom. Pattaya Beach ashore has a number of resort and bungalow developments.
The best beach dinghy landing areas are in the east of the bay, where there is a small sandy channel through the coral, and alongside the floating jetty at the entrance to ‘Walking Street’. There is no access, though, at low tide.
Approaching from the west, there are some exposed rocks at low tide. Avoid anchoring too close to ferry buoys, which have now spread westwards, leaving increasingly less room for yachts.
Unfortunately, this bay has been taken hostage by large offshore rafts and jetties for the fast ferries and large speedboats that now bring hordes of tourists to the island.
