Pattaya Beach

Pattaya beach is Ko Lipe's premier stretch of sand with some very good snorkelling to be had. It's more crowded than Sunrise or Sunset beaches, but the lively atmosphere is enticing in the evening.

Sunrise Beach

This long beach tilts back towards the mainland with a couple of small offshore islets in the foreground. Compared to Pattaya beach, Sunrise has a much more low-key atmosphere, and gets far less crowded. While there is some good snorkelling around the islets, it can get windy and choppy here from November to April.

Sunset Beach

With a relaxed, funky vibe, calmer waters than Sunrise beach and far less traffic than Pattaya, Sunset beach is great for kicking back and -- you guessed it -- watching the sunset.

Walking Street and inland

It may be a short walk to the beaches, but Lipe's interior offers some of the more comfortable flashpacker accommodation.
