Hat Toei Ngam (Toei Ngam Beach) is one of most beautiful beach in Sattahip, not far from Pattaya. This is because the beach is looked after by Royal Thai Navy. There are lots of rows of toei trees (Pandanus kaida Kurz), and the seawater is crystal clear. Apart from that the gradually slope of the beach is perfect, so it is a great place for bringing your kids to enjoy swimming here. There is a resort and a few restaurants available around the beach as well. The location of Toei Ngam Beach is in the Navy Headquarter, near Sattahip City.
In the past, Toei Ngam Beach was not open for tourism, so those who can enjoy this beautiful beach were just Thai Navies and their relatives. However, not only this beach has been open for visitors to enjoy, but it also provides basic facilities for this purpose. The Marine Resort, for example, is for visitors who like to stay close to the sea (But it would be better to contact the resort in advance for weekend accommodation).
Although the length of this beach is about 1.5 kilometers, it does not mean that visitors can enjoy every area of it. This is because there are zones for Navy houses as well. In fact, the visitor's zone is about 300 - 400 meters. This length can support a large number of visitors, though.
On weekend, this Hat Toei Ngam is alive. There are a lot more visitors than on weekend. You can see visitors go there for either swimming or a picnic. However, as just mention, on weekday, it is not suitable for backpackers who do not have their own vehicle because there are not many either public or private transports to support them, especially when they want to leave the beach.
The location of Toei Ngam Beach is close to Sattahip City. If you come from Pattaya By Sukhumvit Road, it is just before the city of Sattahip (on the right-hand side). You would be able to notice its entrance because there is a tank beside the notice sign (Thai Language).
