The road that runs adjacent to the beach has a handful of local style bars where cheap drinks and snacks can be enjoyed in an ocean setting. The cocktails are particularly good value for money, with a Mai Thai weighing in at 120 baht you can enjoy the same view you get in an upmarket resort for a fraction of the price. A nice way to start the evening is come down to this area at sunset and take your drinks across the road to the actual beach – a perfect Thailand moment.
