the pebble beach is quite pretty, but is it really a beach?
Some people call Kai Mook a beach, but by many people's definition the stony shore here would not be called a beach. It has the slope and shape of a beach but is comprised of pebbles and rocks. There are a few tiny patches of rough sand between. While the pebble beaches are not easy to walk on, they are quite attractive, and it is interesting how neatly the waves have arranged different sizes in different locations.
However, Khai Mook – which translates as Pearl Beach – has a tranquil atmosphere of its own that many people like. Peace and quiet, with a short distance to the attractions of Sai Khao are perhaps the main attributes here.
There are many big trees along the shore of Kai Mook, and some hotels have created very pleasant beachfront areas for relaxation while absorbing the sea views. It is indeed possible to swim here, and some resorts have built pathways among the rocks to allow guest to find deep water comfortably. The photos of each hotel in its member gallery show each individual beachfront.
