The popular beaches are spread along the bays of the island's west coast. The beaches along the east coast, facing Pang Nga Bay, are mostly mud flats. All of the main hotels and resorts are on the western beaches. Each of the beaches and bays has its own character, which in turn is generally built on by the hotels and resorts.
