Layan Beach


Layan Beach is none other than an extension of Bang Tao Beach.

The area is quite beautiful and the beach is almost deserted.

I had not been back here for a few years, and I must say that I was quite surprised to see the change: dozens, even hundreds of recent constructions have sprung up like mushrooms.

Luxury homes, in the style of the country, a superb golf course (Laguna Golf Club), all guarded by guards with fences at the entrance of each subdivision.

It's beautiful, very beautiful...

Fortunately, in addition to all this, we can still find typical and traditional places.


Layan Beach is a little lost just north of Bang Tao Beach.

A view of this magnificent deserted beach,
with the beach of Bang Tao above and the whole Laguna site...



Almost magical landscape, and so relaxing...



Some people have a lot of imagination to make small and practical boats....
and defying all competition....





Beautiful place, very peaceful, well shaded.
Thai people like to sit on the grass and snack











We have just left a place that has remained typical with fishermen sitting on a stone wall, well-used boats,
very poor houses and some geese.... to cross the Laguna golf course...
This road that leads us there, existed long before the golf course
but the buildings that have been built there are quite luxurious and magnificent...
Striking contrast that makes you switch from one world to another in a matter of seconds...

A partial view of the Laguna Golf Club....





and a whole series of buildings with a direct view of the Laguna golf course



Whether you are passionate about golf or not, you have to recognize
that a place like this is always beautiful to see



At this point, golfers cross the road,
and that's where I find this old man lying quietly on a wooden board
next to his car, in the shade...
Seller of fresh coconuts and other soft drinks
to quench the thirst of these golf gentlemen....

... he even offers golf balls on an old board deformed by rainwater.
Such a contrasting image with the surrounding luxury...
