Wongamat Beach is the beachfront part of Naklua in the northern part of Pattaya City. This stretch of beach is widely recognized as one of the best in the area. It has a beautiful bay with palm trees shading the sand and some impressive views back across the Pattaya City skyline and across the to Koh Larn Island, shimmering on the horizon.
As this crescent shaped beach is so picturesque, there are now lots of five-star branded hotels and condominiums spread across this section of coastline. The most recognizable of these is the Centara Grand Mirage It has a unique pyramid design, theme-park style tropical pools, with beach and poolside bars and restaurants. Even if you are not staying onsite, their restaurants are open to walk-in bookings. The Pullman Hotel chain have also moved into the area, and again they welcome beach patrons into their bars and restaurants which can be a great relief from the midday heat.
