Hat Nopparat Thara?  Avoid the touristy part (Ao Nang).

I always stayed at Railay West beach. That was a while back so I can't say for now.

It's on the mainland, but reached by boat, unless they have put a road in.

Best sunsets in Thailand.

I'm back from there and it was way overcrowded and there was too much boat (even on a Monday). Phra Nang beach was not that bad because the boat can't get there. Railay is still only accessible via boat.

I'm sorry to hear that. It was one of my favourite beaches, for the sunsets.

Stayed at Ao Nang and it was good and did not feel itchy as we did when we were at Cha AM.

Never been to Cha Am, but I have been to Hua Hin and there were loads of jelly fish on that beach. I didn't see any swimming there- only sunbathing on the beach amongst the horse poo.

I swimmed at both Cha Am and Hua Hin but you can't compare with south Thailand! Cha Am feels more Thai than Hua Hin and both are decent option from Bangkok. However Koh Mak and surrounding islands are much better.

 

If it's for living then south thailand is much better for beachs! However some spot can get crowded and they did not figured out how to put a muffler on their boat.

 

I plan to go to Koh Phi Phi for the first time next month since it's probably a once of a lifetime chance to visit without tourists.

Maybe it depends on the season or the beach. Never saw any. 

 

Edit: I remember the hotel staff fumigating the beach... After doing some research it seems like a common problem in this area including Koh Chang.
