Locally known as Paradise Island, Koh Samet is a white sand island near Pattaya mainland. The island can be reached by a ferry ride from the fishing village of Ban Phe. The stunning beauty of the island is amplified with its sparkling sand, crystal blue water, and pristine beach-front.
Soaking in the sun and enjoying the beach-front are among the favorite free things to do in Pattaya for couples. Colorful beach umbrellas, rows of relaxing beach chairs, and bustling shacks further enhance the charm. Sunbathing, swimming, strolling, or simply relaxing in Hat Sai Kaew (popularly known as Diamond Beach – longest beach of the picturesque island) are other things to do in Pattaya when on this island.
