At the far southern end of the Thong Nai Pan Yai, Pop doesn't have the best spot for swimming, but the sand here is fine for sunbathing, and there's not much foot traffic to deal with.
Pop has some very cheap, old wooden bungalows with all the wear and tear one would expect for these prices. Pop is well-suited to penny pinchers, and Taw, the woman running the place, is very hospitable. A single large concrete bungalow sits on the beach and costs a little more, but it's more comfortable and well-built -- the window screens and sturdy structure mean far fewer insects, and the good-sized tile bathroom is fresh and clean. The thing that sets Pop apart the most is its Pizzeria Italian Restaurant, which makes some convincing pasta and pizzas that provide a welcome change if you've been eating nothing but Thai for a while.
