Five Star Vagabond

Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Wongamat & Cosy Beach Pattaya

October 14, 2013 by David Herd

Wongamat skylineWongamat & Cosy Beach Pattaya  are located north & south of the main Pattaya beach and offer far better conditions than the very busy and noisy Pattaya beach. There are no noisy speedboats taking people para sailing and to the islands so it is much easier to relax and enjoy the warm waters of the gulf of Thailand.

Hi rise condos at Wongamat.

Cosy Beach Pattaya

There are some huge condos and hotels at both locations, so if you want a more peaceful environment pick one of these relaxing places. I prefer Wongamat as it is much easier to visit the the Pattaya action plus there are many more restaurants and bars close by.

Many new condos at Wongamat

There is an explosion of new high-rise condominiums overlooking Wongamat beach.


Centara Grand Mirage hotel Wongamat.

Centara hotel Wongamat The Centara is one of the many luxury five star hotels in Pattaya, the grounds here are like the lost city of Atlantis.

Centara is perfect for families as there are lots of pools to keep the children occupied.

My favourite bar is the Beach Club at the Pullman Hotel in Wongamat, here is my Australian friend Nathan Corbett relaxing with a cool drink. Nathan has held 10 World titles for Muay Thai kickboxing in 3 separate weight divisions. He likes to come to Pattaya and train at Fairtex gym on Pattaya north rd.

I think this is the best spot in Pattaya to watch the magnificent sunsets while sipping a half price cocktail at happy hour, between 5pm and 7pm every day.

Cosy Beach Pattaya

As good as any place in the world for beautiful sunsets.


Nice view at the Beach Club.

There always seems to be something nice to look at when you visit the Beach Club.


Excellent view at Cosy Beach also.  😎

Russian girl at Cosy beach There is no doubt about it, these Russian girls at Cosy Beach Pattaya have given us guys more incentive to go to the beach.

Cosy Beach Pattaya is beside the Royal Cliff hotel.

The Royal Cliff was the hotel I stayed in on my first visit in 1980.

The Royal Cliff has an elevator to take guests down to the beach.

Cosy Beach Pattaya gets crowded in the high season.

Things have changed somewhat in 2016, firstly the Russian tourists are not coming due to the crash of the Rouble, and secondly the food outlets have been removed due to orders from the Navy who control the area.
