Hotels on Chaweng Beach
The beach in front of Ark Bar Beach Resort. The beach here is not as bad as this makes it look but I wanted to capture that north of here (where the beach is protected by a reef) the water is calmer and a little more lagoon-like. The beach is still nice but not as idyllic. Though it is more kid-friendly.

Bophut Beach Hotels

These pictures are of Bophut Beach starting from the west and moving to the east. The beach has soft beautiful sand on the western half then the sand grows more pebbly and coarse as you walk (east) towards the Anantara (the last hotel directly on the beach) and Fisherman’s Village. I, personally, do not mind this type of sand but some people do wish they had stayed farther down the beach (to the west) where the sand is finer.

Beach Quality: Very Good (but narrow)
