Ao Mae Haad

The western stretch of Mae Haad is stunning with great snorkelling offshore, while the eastern side is not so suitable for swimming and sees a good deal of small-scale fishing from longtail boats. The water is relatively shallow along the entire beach and is more accommodating at high tide, but the offshore reef is accessible by a smooth channel mid-beach.

Ao Seethanu

Seethanu is broken in the middle by the boat anchorage, with the northern stretch of the bay being the more popular area.

At the southern end of the bay, the beach isn't so great, but the resorts are perched up on the headland, some with quiet good views. Mostly inexpensive, they vary greatly in quality.
