    Rawai Beach lies around Cape Prom Thep from Nai Harn and is a working beach. Here you will find traditional long-tail boats and modern speedboats for hire. Also along here are many Thai beach restaurants where you sit on mats along the water's edge eating grilled chicken, fish, clams and mussels, whatever's the fresh catch of the day.

    On the weekends many of the local Thais come here to picnic and vendors roam up and down selling everything from sausages and dried squid to ice cream, fresh fruit, sodas and shaved ice treats. At the east end of this beach there are a number of shops selling sea shells and other tourist items.

    A sea gypsy village is located here also but it is not recommended to visit these people who are in the process of being supplanted by tourism. A couple of hotels and bungalow resorts are found along Rawai with their accompanying restaurants.
