This beautifully-curved bay is once a battlefield between the Thai and Japanese armies during the WWII, and is under the care of the Royal Thai Air Force. Part of the beach is filled with souvenir stalls while other parts are largely untouched with a peaceful environment. Accommodations should be reserved in advance at the 53rd Squadron
