Naklua Beach is immediately north of Pattaya Beach, just beyond the Dusit Thai Hotel, and extends all the way to Wongamat Beach. Since Pattaya Beach was re-nourished you can now easily access Naklua Beach from Pattaya Beach.
The photos of Naklua Beach (below) are in order of south to north, starting just behind the Dusit Thani Hotel, and finishing at Wongamat Beach.
The photo (above) is the most southern area of Naklua Beach, with the retaining wall of the Dusit Thani on the right of the photo. NOTE: if you are staying at the Dusit Thani, you can also reach Naklua Beach via soi 24 which is on your right at the entrance to the hotel, or to your left as you are exiting the hotel.
As you can see from this photo (above) the beach is quite rocky here, so mind your feet once you get a little further out.
Heading north (photo above) much of the beach is covered by a footpath, and there at least 2 condominiums and and the Cape Dara Resort, LK Emerald, and Ban Rimpha hotels on the beach front.
There’s lots of nice little shaded areas (photo above) along Naklua Beach, and there’s even 2 or 3 little beach bars.
At the northern end of Naklua Beach there’s 2 very popular stretches of beach separated by a rocky outcrop, the first of which you can see in the above. They are both popular places to bathe or just chill out.
The most northern stretch of Naklua Beach (photo above) is probably the most popular area for bathers. Although this beach is just a very short distance from Pattaya Beach, the water quality appears to better.
This nice little shaded area (photo above) is the northern end, where Wongamat Beach begins.
