During low tide, you can see crabs running around. In the morning, there were wild birds (they looked like mini stocks) hunting for breakfast. Unfortunately, there was a lot of trash in the sea that was brought onto the shore. Sea pollution from us humans...More

Not as lively and fun as Patong but a great place to relax. Dining is easy too. Not a bad place to enjoy the sea and sun top.

Rawai beach isn't the best for swimming but during low tide, locals and some tourists were enjoying the small sandy sections of beach. Many fishing boats, which add to the authenticity of the area.

Rawai beach isn't very pretty. However, what stands out is the multiple food stalls set up right by the beach side. One can just sit in one of them and enjoy the food with a beautiful view.

Staying at Karon Beach, we took a taxi ride to Rawai beach for sunset and to eat at the fish market. Absolutely spoiled for choice. Many small market stalls with live produce and a restaurant attached. Select what you want to eat, it is collected,...More
