Baan Hat Rawai Restaurant
Pak Bahng Beach
Sorry we have not got any photos of this one. We did go and visit but it was not the most relaxing experience.
It is a small beach and not easy to find. The beach is a mixture of sand and shingle. The seabed is rocky and not suited to bathing. The sea is shallow and not well suited to snorkeling..
There are no shops or amenities here. Only a few privately owned houses. The real problem here is the local dogs. Every house seems to have a small pack and they are all very territorial. We were not actually chased but the barking and howling was from all directions.
A nice local woman warned us about the dogs before we went down there. Apparently some of the houses are owned by foreign residents and their dogs are the worst offenders.
How to Get There
Take a boat is the best option - but really the beach is hardly worth the effort..
You can reach the beach by land if you are willing to brave the local dogs. From Rawai, get onto the road to Laem Promthep and immediately there is a left hand turn. Down this road you briefly pass the west end of Rawai Beach. A few hundred meters on, there are a couple of dirt tracks down to the beach. You can walk or take a motorbike down.
