Pattaya & Jomtien

Welcome to Pattaya & Jomtien

"Sun, sand, sea and fun for the whole family in every season"

Pattaya and Jomtien are located southeast of Bangkok on the east coast and can be reached within a two-hour drive. Pattaya and Jomtien have grown into one of Thailand's premier resorts and are among Southeast Asia's best-known international beach destinations with many varied attractions and recreational opportunities.

The resort area has a coastline of more than 20 km. From north to south, the beaches of Naklua, Pattaya City, Jomtien and Na Jomtien lie on elongated bays surrounded by swaying palm trees. From Jomtien, Pattaya can be easily reached by local taxi.

Luxury hotels and resorts with relatively cheap rates, lively bars and fine restaurants, fantastic theme parks, water and adventure sports, and family-friendly cabaret shows are just a few to name, all of which contribute to a popular year-round holiday destination for the whole family.

The azure waters of the small offshore islands of Koh Lan and Koh Sak and further southeast the marine national parks of Koh Samet and Koh Chang offer excellent snorkeling and diving facilities. The area also has numerous golf courses and various nature parks in the hinterland.

Naklua Beach

Naklua Beach is one of the most beautiful in the area and a popular beach destination for the whole family. Naklua Beach is about 1 km long, at the northern point it meets Wongamat Beach, at the southern point a headland separates it from Pattaya Beach. The beach is a lot quieter than that of Pattaya and even Jomtien. The beach is popular with surfers.

Despite all the tourist crowds, Naklua has retained its charm as a fishing village, including a fish market.

Like Jomtien, Naklua is a family-friendly destination, and the nightlife is a lot quieter than in Central Pattaya.
