About Jomtien Beach Pattaya
Unlike Pattaya Beach, Jomtien is uncluttered and uncrowded. With four miles of sand and space, it’s a great place for those who love water sports.
Jet skiing, water skiing, parasailing, windsurfing, speed boat rides and more are all available, with equipment and instruction easily obtained. There’s even a Water Sports School on the beach boardwalk at Soi 6.
Divers too will find what they need, with several local dive shops offering tours and classes.
For those who just want to sit on the sand, chairs and umbrellas can be rented from vendors for very little money. Friendly hawkers can provide water, fruit, snacks, massage and more. Bargaining is welcome.
For those who want more to eat in Jomtien, restaurants and clubs of every variety are readily available on the street bordering the beach. For something special, try the Pattaya Park Tower, with its revolving restaurant. The busiest commercial strip is where Thap Phraya Road meets the beach. The most remote part of Jomtien is to the south.
Jomtien is an easy day trip from South Pattaya, about 20 minutes away, with tuk tuks costing about 20 baht (less than 1usd).
