The next developed beach is Laem Mae Phim Beach, which is around 45km from Rayong town. This beach is very popular with locals on the weekends, so it’s best to stay in a resort with a pool, so that you can avoid the crowds when necessary!
There are also several nice beachside restaurants, such as Tequila Sunrise, which has great sea views and a varied menu (Western and Thai dishes). There’s also a good selection of resorts here, ranging from midrange (Villa Bali & Mae Pim Resort Hotel) to super luxury (GrandBlue Resort & Centara Q Resort). Out of the three main beaches, Mae Phim is probably the best choice for families. The beach is beautiful, big enough to accommodate large crowds, plus there are plenty of activities to keep children and teenagers amused!
