Located six kilometers north of Patong Beach this two-kilometre beach is one of the quietest on the island. Nearby beaches include Laem Sing and Surin, as well as several small sandy coves. The name is derived from a nearby Muslim fishing village. In the afternoons on this peaceful and picturesque beach, water buffalo can often be seen cooling off in the water. There is a large range of accommodation available and many small Thai restaurants, specializing in fresh seafood. It is also the location of Thailand's best and most famous entertainment park, FantaSea.
