So many people go to Asia for three things: sun, sand and surf. This continent has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and Thailand is no exception to this fact. If you are ever visiting this country, consider visiting Pattaya Beach—with its clear waters, white sands, bright sunlight, you’re sure to have fun.
Tourists usually come in from Bangkok and visit the beach for a day’s worth of fun. The kinds of activities available to the normal visitor are endless, but the most popular ones are parasailing, jet-skiing, and snorkeling. Of course, the beach itself has many establishments that the visitor can enjoy. For those who prefer to see less land and want to be surrounded by as much of the ocean as possible, tours include an additional speedboat ride to another nearby island.
Coral Island or Koh Larn is an island just across Pattaya beach that boasts some of the world’s prettiest corals. Visitors usually come here by boat from the main beach and stay here the whole day, parasailing, surfing, swimming or just having fun in the pure azure waters of the island. There are many more establishments in the island where tourists can have a quick bite in between lounging about in the sun for a nice tan or after an intense session of sea sports. If you’re the foodie type, there are some excellent restaurants by the seaside so you can enjoy great food, great drinks, and the great sights.
Of course, make sure that you pick out a sunny day and check the weather before you book a trip to Coral Island! It’s only possible to get to the island if the weather permits; otherwise you put yourself in big danger. These tours are always concerned for the safety of its visitors, and will not hesitate to cancel if the weather looks dangerous. If you’re planning to go to this island, set aside about 120 USD per head and a little more for chairs and sea sports. Usual tours have visitors staying in the beach and island for a whole day, then being taken back to their hotels in Bangkok—prepare to be happily exhausted on the ride back to the city.
