what is spectacular is the beach here .... in the evening the beach chairs are put away and it transforms into a dining and entertaining area. i haven't been staying up late because i'm still jet lagged but trying to get onto a Thailand sleep/wake schedule.
each beach has developed it's own atmosphere and they are all connected to a path that runs along the coast. the zen beach has an area where the stones have been piled up. it's pretty hot - like in the 90s with high humidity but it's not so bad when you can pop into the water and cool off. the snorkeling is good but not as great as down in the lower island chains.
