Cheerful beach bungalows
Several kilometres south of Sichon town in an enchanting area defined by fishing boats and grazing goats, Teeny Beach offers three comfortable bungalows set directly over the sand of Haad Piti.
While not a good choice if you don’t have your own wheels and aren’t up for renting a motorbike, travellers who enjoy veering off the beaten track should consider staying out here.
The four concrete cottages are set close together next to a tiny reception area, with a local family running a little convenience shop next door. Each cottage is painted a bright colour -- pink, green, blue -- and the welcoming woman who showed us around said that we could choose. Opting for the blue, we were charmed by a bright and fresh interior with blue sailor-themed decor and glass windows with sea views. All rooms are of a reasonable size and come with air-con, TVs, fridges, firm but decent-quality beds and good-size bathrooms with rain showerheads in addition to the usual moveable showerheads. The room that we checked out was spotless and you’ll reach the sand after no more than three steps out the front door. The beach here is wide and lovely, set to a backdrop of umbrella trees and shared with hardly another soul.
The same folks who operate Teeny House down in Nakhon Si Thammarat town also own Teeny Beach -- they definitely have a thing for bright colours. The staffer who showed us around spoke a little English, which she was eager to show off, and offered to arrange motorbike rental for 200 baht per day. You might save some cash by booking online.
