Plan on this being a full day trip because it will fill up your day, but it’ll be worth it!
A Visit To Lamai Beach Is Always Great!

There are clothing shops, plenty of bars and pubs, and other commercialization ventures that for some may spoil the adventure of the beach. There isn’t a better beach to enjoy a swim in the area, however, and there are plenty of exploration opportunities and snorkeling available to you as well. Plenty of hidden gems abound as well that offer affordable meals, inexpensive drinks, and everything that you’d want at a trip to the beach.
Get In Touch With Yourself At Wat Plai Laem

Exploring here is free, though there is the opportunity to donate to this worship center so they can continue offering their services to the community. Remember to take your shoes off!
