Pattaya Beach is parallel to the city centre and stretches from South Pattaya up to the famous walking street. Along the Beach Road are value-for-money shopping malls and market stalls, a huge variety of restaurants, endless sports and leisure activities, and of course, the bars and nightclubs. There are a few islands that are accessible by speedboat in less than 15 minutes but taking 45 minutes by ferry. The main island is 'Ko Larn', known as the 'Coral Island'. Many of the islands have public beaches and offer scuba diving activities.
