Kai Bae was once a quick pass through on the way from Lonely Beach to White Sands or back, but it is growing quickly and yet retains a lot of charm. The ongoing rumour is that it will rival White Sands Beach in a few years for tourist development.. and it is well on its way to do doing that… but not yet. It is more scenic though than White Sands with less concrete and more trees, a bit easier to walk per se… Smaller restaurants and smaller clubs, a more intimate feel and perhaps a bit of the reason why so many families come here.
The beach itself is great, located in a bay with stunning views, great sand and shade. The beach is a great place to spend the day and with all the roadside services just a quick walk away it is a very handy beach to be on.
Kai Bae is becoming more popular with families and as such it slowly turning more into a couples and family friendly area with good restaurants, excellent couple based nightlife and a lot of services. At night the road more or less becomes a walking area with lots of small shops and places to see. If you walking around though please remember that there are vehicles here also – watch your step. Walk facing traffic.
With good services, a decent beach, lots of accommodations – this can be a great area to stay in.
