Top 15 things to do in Sattahip

1. Sai Kaew Beach

Surrounded with forested hills, Sai Kaew Beach features a shallow crescent of white soft sand, clear water, several bars and restaurants, and a water sport area where you can rent jet skis and banana boats. This pristine and idyllic beach is kept clean and tidy by the Royal Navy. Go kayaking or canoeing, and pay a visit to the nearby monkey island. The gentle slope of the seabed makes this beach perfect for inexperienced swimmers and small children. Amenities include public restrooms and showers.
Suggested duration: 4 hours

2. Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden, Na Chom Thian

Stroll the extensive grounds of Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden and enjoy a diversity of onsite activities. The 202 hectares (500 acres) of expertly crafted gardens also house a major scientific center dedicated to the collection and study of cycads--woody evergreens that were once much more abundant than they are today. Explore the charmingly themed gardens (including French gardens, an orchid and bromeliad display, and a butterfly hill) and then catch a martial arts demonstration or enjoy a traditional Thai massage. If you work up an appetite, tuck into a meal at one of the two onsite restaurants. Accommodations are available for those wishing to extend their visit.
Suggested duration: 2h 30 min

3. Khao Chi Chan Buddha, Na Chom Thian

Marvel at a giant golden Buddha at Khao Chi Chan Buddha. A laser carved the 109 m (357 ft) tall, 70 m (229 ft) wide image out of the cliff face, which was then picked out in burnished gold. A lake filled with water lilies sits at the foot of the cliff, surrounded by a decorative rock garden. A number of souvenir shops and a cafe cluster around the site, and Buddhist monks can sometimes be seen chanting prayers here.
Suggested duration: 2 hours

5. Bang Saray Beach, Bang Sare

Once a tiny fishing village, Bang Saray Beach developed into a tourist haven thanks to its soft sand and traditional family-owned seafood restaurants. Relax on the relatively untouched and narrow beach under thickets of natural green canopies hanging over the white sand. The beach draws mostly Thai tourist, so expect to meet few Western visitors and be aware of possible language barriers.
Suggested duration: 2 hours

6. Ko Samae San, Samaesan

Ko Samae San is a small island with many sandy beaches providing excellent swimming opportunities and access to good snorkeling spots. You can bike around the island or trek through the lush forest, as well as visit a small natural history museum housing a whale skeleton. Because of the proximity of a Thai naval base, you need to book a tour through a local operator to visit this destination.

Stroll on the white sand, have a picnic, or swim in the clear waters of Hat Toei Ngam.

Grab something to eat at the few restaurants surrounding the beach, or visit the nearby naval museum and monument.
