Jomthien Beach (or Jomtien Beach) is located about 2 kilometers south of Pattaya. This beach area has become popular for swimming, water sports and residential living because it has a long scenic coastline and there is less boating activity in the area than at Pattaya Beach.
There are many good hotels, bungalows, guest houses and restaurants. A lot of Thais and tourists come to this area and enjoy the quiet scenery and the long beach. Chairs and umbrellas are available to sit and to have food and drink, or to go swimming. Water sports such as wind surfing, para-sailing, water skiing as well as beach volleyball are available.
Jomthien is very gay affirming with gay-owned restaurants, guesthouses, saunas, massage places, and bars; the beach area is mixed and friendly. Sansuk Guesthouse-Sauna are featured in the photo gallery, along with Tui’s Place on the sand at Dongtan Beach, a large and popular gay section of the long beach.
