Beaches in Narathiwat

thailand beach, beaches in Southern Thailand, Songkla Narithiwat has a great coastline that beach lovers will find uniquely attractive. Too bad the water of Narathiwat isn't as attractive as Pattani and Songkla.

Rock jetties have been constructed to prevent storms from eroding the land along the coast. Strong seas driven by the Southeast Monsoons are not cut off by the land mass of Cambodia and Vietnam so they punish the beaches further south.
