After spending most of my time exploring the beaches of Ban Phe, I have selected my top two beaches to visit during your stay. There are 5 beaches around the Ban Phe area and they all have their pros and cons. Here is my recommendation and why:
CoCa Cola beach
This beach is approximately 9 km from Ban Phe city in the direction of Laem Mae Phim. The name CoCa cola beach comes from the sign that has been out on the main road for many years. There are two restaurants, sun beds/chairs, parasols and it is also possible to rent bungalows. You can choose whether you want to sit amongst all the others, or take your towel and find your own little spot along the beach.
Don´t miss: try a tasty mango frappe (shake)
This is an 8 km long beach which is closer to Ban Phe city than CoCa Cola beach. There are several restaurants, free sunbeds and lots of space. One of the finest beaches, good for walking in the afternoon. For the active person, there are some fun water activities like banana boat and jet ski. Along this beach, there are many hotels to choose from, both luxury and budget alternatives. Something for everyone!
Don´t miss: a visit to the Bee Happy restaurant – Bee and his family serve the best Thai food in the whole Ban Phe. Cost between 60-150 baht.
Reasons for being my top 2 beaches:
- Space to move around, easy to find your own private spot
- Good food and drink alternatives
- Free sunbeds/chairs
- Generally no big waves
- Mostly clear water
- Good for walks
- Family friendly
