Sai Kaew Beach is a pristine Navy owned beach that is located on the Mainland opposite Koh Khram in the Sattahip district. It is open for public use at a reasonable fee and is approximately a 30 minute drive South from Pattaya. One of the best things about Sai Kaew Beach is its superb restaurant which offers fresh Thai and Seafood cuisine which are cooked to perfection.
The beach is usually fairly quiet and always has a relaxed atmosphere. Thai locals often like to visit this beach and enjoy a picnic under the shade offered by the plentiful trees that are located throughout the 1km stretch of sand.
The beach is managed by the Thai Royal Navy and therefore it is kept very clean and there are no street venders walking along the beach trying to hassle you into buying something! The waters are also clear and often calm which makes for great swimming. Snorkelling is also possible here however this activity is best done one of the islands where the visibility is usually, simply, incredible. There are also sea KAYAKS available to rent from the beach which is undoubtedly the best way to get a suntan whilst burning a few calories!
