On Sunrise Beach and Pattaya Beach you’ll find a good mix of accommodation in the flashpacker, midrange and high-end brackets, but low-budget travellers will have to settle for inland options. Seclusion seekers should check out Sunset Beach or the western coves. While we don’t typically list places geared specifically to divers, scuba outfits such as Forra, Sanom Beach, Adang Sea, Satun Dive and Davy Jones Locker all offer accommodation as well. As a general rule, expect rates to spike by around 30% at peak times and drop by the same amount in the shoulder months.
We have 28 places to stay in and around Ko Lipe.
Known for nightlife and soft white sand, Pattaya Beach hosts a few inexpensive bungalow spots along with several large and mostly bland midrange to high-end resorts. You can expect a lot of boat traffic, though roped-off areas fronting several resorts make it easy to swim safely. Nuzzling up to Walking Street and with several bars at the east end, much of Pattaya Beach is a lot livelier than Sunrise Beach after dark.
