What to eat in Lonely Beach


Well, what do you feel like eating? Seafood comes highly recommended as it’s caught fresh off from the sea and is usually available on the beachside restaurants with grill station. Many popular Western dishes are also served in most eateries in case you’re missing the food back home.

Going completely local with locals’ favourites like ‘pad krapao gai’ (spicy stir-fried chicken with basil leaves), the world-famous ‘pad thai’ (stir-fried noodle with tofu, dried shrimps and bean sprouts) and a variety of spicy papaya salad. Several stalls offer a variety of ‘roti’, a Thai-style pancake (banana being the most popular recipe) which makes a great and fulfilling snack in case you’re feeling peckish between meals.

Flanking the main road and fringing the beach is a bevy of small and large restaurants with a choice of local and international food. The beach offers a mix of local and resort restaurants as well as banana pancake (roti) and ‘som tam’ (Thai spicy papaya salad) stalls.
