The sunset Archives

Every evening the sunset in Rayong is a surprisingly colorful ending to the day — and even better if you are watching it from one of these amazing viewing spots.

  Ao Prao on Koh Samet

Taking the gold is Ao Prao! This small 200 metre stretch of sand is the only beach on the western side of Koh Samet, making it one of the most beautiful — and popular — places for viewing the sunset on all of Koh Samet!

  The aptly named, Sunset Point

Also on the western shore of Ko Samet perched atop the cliff is a great viewing area, not just for watching the sunset but also for getting a glimpse of the mainland and the other half of Khao Laem Ya — Mu Ko Samet National Park.

  White Rocks & Mae Rumphueng

On the mainland, Mae Rumphueng Beach is a great place to watch the sunset over the Gulf of Thailand, one of my personal favorite spots. White Rocks Courtyard is also great for sunset viewing, plus if you climb up on the large rocks you can get some stunning photos 😉

About The Author

In early 2016 I came to Rayong for one week. I’m still here. My name is Derek Freal, a cubicle escapee turned professional travel blogger who spent almost 8 years as a nomad before discovering the beaches of Rayong on my fourth trip to Thailand. Although I still travel the world for work, you can find me here anytime I have a few weeks off work, exploring, eating and drinking my way around the Rayong 😉
