Na Jomtien is the stretch of beach that continues on from Jomtien southwards towards Bang Saray. There is a natural break between Jomtien and Na Jomtien due to an inlet that is used as a marina for the houses that front onto the waterway.
You can see from the north to the south of this slowly curving bay, and out across the Gulf of Thailand to Koh Larn and Koh Kram Yai islands.
Access to this area is primarily from the Sukhumvit Road that runs from Bangkok all the way down the coast through Pattaya and further south east.
The beach is clean and sandy and the water is clear. The first stretch is called White Sand Beach. Here you will find some great direct beachfront restaurants including; The Glass House, Bacco Beach Italian and “The View” restaurant. The world famous Café Del Mar of Ibiza fame has also opened a beachfront resort which boasts a huge lagoon pool, sun deck, access onto the beach and all else that goes with the Balearic house beats that made it famous.
It takes about 15 minutes from Pattaya to the Na Jomtien area. This area will also benefit from the newest Pattaya Motorway extension making it easy to bypass Pattaya on the way to Bangkok if needed. In fact this area is seeing the complete reverse, in that now the motorway link has been complete, many families are heading out of Bangkok and arriving on this shoreline in less than 2 hours.
Na Jomtien is one of the only places that have the opportunity for direct beachfront properties and businesses. There is a good range of high-rise condominiums here with panoramic views over the Gulf. These include; Water’s Edge, Whale Marina, Golden Sands, Baan Somprasong and Movenpick Residence to name but a few.
A little further down the beach is Ocean Marina Yacht Club. This is one of the largest marinas in Asia and offers full facilities and services for luxury yachts including mooring and maintenance services. It’s possible to hire boats from here for excursions to the islands for the day or for a few days. Directly on the marina are 2 more high-rise condos; Ocean Marina and Ocean Portifino.
There are many leading international hotels and resorts at Na Jomtien. These include Dor-Shada Hotel, Movenpick Siam Hotel, Ravindra Beach Resort & Spa, and the Ambassador City.
Finally there is also a small village called Baan Amphur which has a large children’s playground, easy parking, a fresh food market and several great little Thai beach restaurants.
