Pratumnak Beach in South Pattaya is another of those hidden gems, like Cosy Beach and Asia Beach, Pattaya’s Pratumnak Beach nestles in one of the picturesque little bays between Pattaya and Jomtien.
Pratumnak beach is quite spacious (see photo above), it is one of the cleanest beaches in Pattaya and it has a gentle laid back atmosphere. One big plus of this beach is that there is a well maintained footpath shaded by the trees, the path links the beaches of Pattaya Park and Dongtan and extends all the way to Jomtien Beach.
Pratumnak Beach is one of the best Pattaya beaches for children (see picture above), there is room for them to run and play, and allocated safe swimming areas.
