What to expect
Excursion to the Military Beach from Pattaya, Thailand. Sai Kaew Beach in the suburbs of Pattaya is a wonderful place for a relaxed beach holiday, which has not been fully appreciated by tourists. Although it may well be considered as an alternative to the withdrawn (and already rather dirty) Koh Larn island, which is located opposite Pattaya. Military Beach is even better than Koh Larn island nearest to Pattaya. For get Sai Kaew Beach you do not need to be shipped by sea and there is no dependence on the weather, the waves. In the end, some people looking for good beach, but want escape rolling on the ship. During a trip to the Military Beach, whole journey is covered by land. Rain is also not an obstacle to visiting such beaches - at Sai Kaew Beach there is a place to hide from a short tropical rain. What is important - there is much tastier and more affordable food at local restaurants. As a result, your vacation will be calmer and cheaper at the Military Beach in Pattaya.
In numerous travel companies Pattaya Military Beach may have different names. For example: Sai Kaew Beach, Military Beach, Blue Lagoon, Indigo Beach, etc. However, this is the same place. Sometimes the beach Sai Kaew mistakenly called the Military Island in Pattaya. This is already wrong, since the place in question is by no means an island.
If you book one day tour to the Military Beach here and go with us, we include transfer from any hotel or condominium in Pattaya and back, as well as an entrance ticket (admission fee).
About eight - half past eight you will picked up from the hotel in a comfortable minibus with air conditioning. The way to the beach takes about half an hour. On weekdays, we take the tourists directly to the car park next to the beach, the driver at the checkpoint pays for your fee and after that you just have free time. About 16:00 the same transport takes you from the beach and deliver to Pattaya hotel or condo. On weekends and on holidays, private transport is not allowed pass to the beach. In this case, the driver pays the fee for you and group change minibus to a special free shuttle-bus that runs between the checkpoint and the beach. At the time indicated by the driver, you need to return from the beach to the same place where you changed minibus to shuttle-bus on the way to the beach. Such a procedure on non-working days is necessary because Sai Kaew Beach is the part of Thai Military base. It is because of the need for change transport, we recommend visiting a military beach on weekdays.
The beach itself, 400-500 meters in length, is a lagoon between two prominent hills in the sea. From the mainland side, too, it is fenced off by low green mountains.
The sand here is light gray, almost white in the sun. The water is clear, azure color, silt at the bottom is small. There are some round, slightly prickly shells in the sand at the bottom, there are crabs and similar living creatures. Especially it is noticeable if you find here the low tide.
The peculiarity of this beach is that in fact it is located on the territory of a military base. Here, the military went to the fact that the tourists had access to part of their territory. From this and some advantages of such location. It is very clean, quiet and peaceful. There are no extra crowds of people, but there is all the necessary infrastructure. But nothing superfluous, fresh rest and solitude.
Entrance to the water here is shallow and very convenient to swim with children. At low tide, the water recedes quite far, first leaving small sandbars, which then turn into islands surrounded by shallow water - ankle-deep to an adult. But it is interesting for children to run on this water mirror. There is also a fenced swimming area. There is usually no big wave.
Sun loungers can be rented for 30 baht per day. Between the beach and the path grow palm trees and other trees that give shade. Also built bamboo arbors. Along the beach there is a paved walkway, next to which there are cafes, rental of sun loungers and other equipment, there is a free toilet and showers. In a word - all the conditions for a relaxing holiday.
