Backed by causarinas, the beach area is very popular on weekends but nearly deserted on weekdays. Made up of a few small bays separated by piles of rocks, the water is surprisingly clean and suitable for swimming, though most of the locals choose to paddle rather than swim laps. There are a limited range of food stalls scattered around the area. On the way to the beach, you’ll first pass Narathiwat’s largest mosque, then you’ll cross over a bridge that has a small fishing and fish-farming community on each side. This is a good place to see the beautiful kawlae boats. Along the beginning of Narathat Beach, behind the trees there are a handful of small bars that specialise in super-hot food and super cold drinks, though they were doing a very poor trade when we passed.
