Bangsaen is a popular beach located in the Chonburi province of Thailand, about two hours drive from Bangkok. Known for its long sandy shore, the beach offers a range of activities including water sports, shopping, and dining. Visitors can relax on the beach, take a stroll along the promenade, or explore local temples and museums. The Bangsaen beach festival, held annually, attracts crowds with live music, food stalls, and cultural displays. With accommodation options ranging from budget to luxury, Bangsaen is a perfect destination for a family beach holiday or a romantic getaway.
Visitor reviews highlight the nice atmosphere and seafood vendors at the beach, as well as water sports for families. However, some visitors complain about the crowds on weekends and holidays. One review mentions that the beach is polluted, but suggests visiting a cleaner beach nearby. Visitors recommend arriving early, bringing mosquito spray and pillows, and noting that nearby toilets may have limited hours.
