White Sand Beach Overview

A breakdown of White Sand Beach

If you want to sunbathe, swim or play volleyball, White Sand Beach is wide enough for such activities, especially when the tide is low. Try to avoid the south end of the beach, though, as it tends to be on a rocky side. Most recommended areas are in the middle and the north end of the beach. Don’t expect parasail, banana boat or jet-ski, though. These are prohibited due to the island’s national park status. White Sand Beach is most beautiful towards the end of the year – from October to around April/May.

Beach Vendors

A very common sight, beach vendors can be seen treading the length of the beach offering all sorts of knick-knack from silk, clothing to costume jewelry. A polite ‘No, thank you’ and a friendly smile will almost immediately stop the nagging. However, there are some determined vendors who will literally stalk you until you buy their goods, the best tactic is pretending to be reading or sleeping, and just ignore them completely. If you want to buy something from them, make sure to bargain to the best of your ability.

Facilities in White Sand Beach

Deck chairs, although not many, are provided by hotels and resorts, and usually available only for guests. Some fee may apply if you wish to rent it. Restaurants and bars are plentiful along the beach. Don’t miss fresh-from-the-sea seafood dinner served amidst the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore. Feeling achy? Not to worry. Many beachside open huts offer massage services from 200 baht to 300 baht. Public toilets are located alongside beach and the road in most restaurants. If you’re not a customer, prepare to pay a fee of around 3-5 baht.

What to eat in White Sand Beach

Unlike beaches in Pattaya, Phuket and Samui, Koh Chang’s beaches don’t have many vendors selling and serving food on the beach. Most of them just sell the usual mix of souvenirs and Thai crafts. However, since most hotel’s restaurants and bars on the island are located near the beach, getting food and drinks while working on your tan can easily be done. One thing to keep in mind, though, in order to keep the White Sand Beach as white as it is now, anything left from your meal, including plastic wrap, paper etc., should be properly disposed of.
