It is a stonier beach not well suited to bathing. There are two sandy stretches split by some rock formations. The entire length of seabed is rocky. If the tide is in there is some snorkeling in this area with a few corals to explore.

Being adjacent to Patong, it is of course a very developed area. There is not a lot of nightlife but there are a few quiet bars. There are several nice restaurants overlooking the beach.

There are no sun loungers or water-sports at this beach as there is little demand for them. It is the sort of beach you visit once for a look before moving to Patong Beach.
