The bungalows here are quite basic, but due to this awesome location you might consider them a bit pricey, you will have to pay around 800 Baht to stay the night (fan only).

It'll sure be a great adventure to spend a night here. If these are too basic for you then on the later part (bay 2 and 3) of the beach there is a few more luxurious bungalows here starting from 4,000 Baht, here Baan Krating Resort takes up most of the space, you might go there to enjoy the services such as massage or just to have a few drinks.

This beach makes the perfect getaway after a few days on the busier beaches, less crowded but with the comforts of a not too pricey restaurant.
