Sea Beach Rampueng is in Thailand.
This is a popular tourist destination for Thai people, and some Foreigners.
It is located in Rayong Province in Thailand, a few kilometres from Rayong City
This is not a place popular with foreign tourists - mostly Thai people come here, and also some "Farangs" with Thai girlfriends/wives.
The place is much calmer and more laid back and peaceful than the bargirl scene at Pattaya.
There are two ways to come here without your own transport -
1) By a light blue songteow from Rayong bus station - it is out the front across the road.
They go regularly and cost B20 per person.
2) An aircon minibus from the bus station, which actually is going to Ban Phe, but goes through here on the way and back.
Cost is B40.
The beach itself is several Km in length, and you can either walk or wait for the above light blue songteow.
Along the beach road are several hotels, most appear to be about B800 per night judging from the signs outside.
There are also street eats and restaurants.
It is not crowded as is most other tourist destinations and is really laid back. There is also no bargirl scene here.
The beach itself!
Regrettably, Thai people are not always as litter conscious as many of us Westerners, and there tends to be some debris on the beach, much from passing shipping apparently.
Lie on the beach!
Nice and peaceful - you will not be assailed with large numbers of touts offering massages etc.
You can hire a deck chair for B30,and order a large bottle of beer and one of water from the same person for B90 (this includes a bucket with ice).
If you have kids, an innertube will cost B30.
The sea is not too rough (in August), and the beach slopes VERY gradually into the sea.
- Chomwiu Restaurant (ชมวิว). This restaurant is at the end of the beach coming from Rayong, before the road turns inland. Just walk directly ahead from the turn about 100 metres. The sign is in Thai only. When the Writer was there (Aug 2014 )there were only five tables occupied. Three were already served. The fourth was in the process of being served, and took a further 30 minutes. Table five (ours) took a total of 45 minutes, despite this being quite a large restaurant.The food was OK, but nothing brilliant, and rather overpriced for the quality and service. Four dishes, rice, a bottle of beer .,water and soft drink were B520. Your hotel would be a better option. edit
There are plenty of other restaurants along the beachfront as well as some street eat.
- Laemya Inn, ☎ 038 653633, . This hotel is right at the end of the beach near where the road turns up into the hills. Instead of turning, go directly ahead and take the second turn left. Turn right at the end and you are there. Hotel is a few hundred metres back from the beach on the hill. Upper floors have a good sea view. Hotel is run by Dutch people. Has a decent restaurant and food is quite reasonably priced. English is spoken. Rooms are aircon, with hot water, bar fridge, TV, balcony, as well as a rack to dry your clothes on. No lift. Double/twin B800, family room with two double beds B1200. Breakfast not included. edit
- Fah Talay Resort  located on the end of Mae Rumphung Beach, and only minutes away from Ban Phe Pier. This is a great place for families and a nice authentic Thai Tourist experience. Each room has cable and AC. Prices between 1,500 - 3,000 baht per night.
Along the beachfront are many other hotels. A couple advertise their prices, and these (at Aug 2014) were around the B800 mark.
- Rayong - the same way you came in - just wait for a songteow/minibus on the main road.
- Ban Phe - a minibus comes from there along the beach and presumably also goes along the beach in the opposite direction.
