If you are living or on holiday in Pattaya and water sports are your thing, Jomtien Beach is definitely the beach you want to be the closest to. The beaches in Jomtien are of a similar layout to Pattaya Beach Road. One side of the streets is accommodation and businesses and just across a beautiful beach for visitors to relax and beat the heat with a dip in the blue.
Many different water activities can be found right from the beach to include parasailing, windsurfing, jet skis, speed boats with water toys and much more to suit whatever adrenaline rush you need. Jomtien Beach also hosts a variety of events and festivals throughout the year such as the annual International Fireworks Exhibit, the Jet Ski World Cup and several boating/racing events for the water sport fans.
Jomtien Night Market
Jomtien Beach is hope to the Jomtien Beach night market where visitors will find all manner of odds and ends, trinkets, fresh food and seafood vendors and inexpensive, weather appropriate clothing. The night market runs from around 4pm until about 11pm daily. It can be very easy to get lost for a couple hours wandering the local vendor stands on your quest.
Restaurants & Street Food
Jomtien Beach is also home to a variety of restaurants that line the street. Many of these establishments sell quality seafood and Thai food but it is not hard to find some tastes from back home as well. The beach also contains a variety of food vendors that wander around and sell their wares. We highly recommend the fried or grilled squid with spicy sauce.
Quieter Then Central Pattaya City Beach
Jomtien is slightly quieter than central Pattaya and is generally frequented by visitors that have been to Pattaya several times and do not need the glitz and glamour of Walking Street or Soi Buakhao. Jomtien is more for the matured and/or retired that want to live out their lives by the sea.
Although, said retirees can still get a little wild every now and then and the services required for a good time can all be found within a few minutes walk.
