As there’s been so much work done on Dongtan beach we thought we’d resurrect an old Property Trader classic “Location Spotlight” a feature in the magazine where we shine the Trader torch on an area around town.

For those of you who haven’t been to the Dongtan beach lately , which is a continuation of Jomtien beach that carries along into the Pratumnak area, you should really have a look. When all the diggers went in a tore the area up there was much shaking of heads and a worry that the beach and surrounds would be ruined. However, what has in fact transpired is the fact that there is a rather good paved walkway for any or you wishing to stay fit with a pleasant stroll by the beach. Then continuing in the keep fit vein an open air fitness place right by the police station. A little farther down, opposite the Pirate Bay Café there is a large sign illuminated at night like the one announcing Jomtien beach. Then for those of you who are not so keen on walking a well appointed car park but beware if you decide to take your motorbike down this stretch you can only access up to the gate between the hours of 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and if you try to travel past there between these hours you will be fined. So get off your bike and try a stroll along this rather pleasant part of town,
