Isolated backpacker option
Southern end of Bang Bao
The very simple and almost dollhouse-like bungalows at Sand and Sea sit on the southern headland on Bang Bao and while they can be reached by road it is an absolute shocker -- we'd recommend parking at Siam Beach and walking via the beach.
Bungalows are clean and quite well looked after and this is easily the cheapest place on Bang Bao but it is a very isolated location. Cheapest rooms have shared facilities while the pricier bungalows have private bathroom. The views up along the beach are quite pretty. Very friendly people run this equally sleepy spot.
