If you want to enjoy a beach holiday as part of your trip to Pattaya, this guide to Naklua Beach and Wongamat Beach is for you. The beaches in this northern part of Greater Pattaya are amongst the finest in the area, bested only by those found on the uninhabited Far Islands. Some five-star hotel chains have realised this, which is why the shore is cluttered with accommodation.
The name ‘Naklua’ translates as ‘salt fields’, with salt farming being the main industry of the area before the tourists arrived. There are still small fishing communities here, providing some of the fresh produce which graces the tables of some of finest restaurants in the area. As this Wongamat and Naklua Beach Guide will show, this is a good place to go if you want to get a feel for local life.
