If you head to the East the road through the mountains and jungles will take you to a small but amazing Than Sadet beach. Rocks on both sides of the lagoon, couple of restaurants and resorts. Also water here is pretty deep – so you can go diving.
Crossing the bridge I got into the jungle. And there between the rocks I saw wooden huts. No windows, some had locks on the doors, others were open. Inside you could see even mattresses, bottles of water on the tables and rolls of toilet paper. As if people left this place at once.
I kept climbing up the rocks to see the view. And there were more and more huts, covered with graffities (one even had the date – year 2017) and completely abandoned, some half-destroyed. But all of them had an amazing view overlooking the sea. So why people left this place, I wondered.
And then on the highest rock I saw a breathtaking panoramic view of the small beach - Haad Thong Reng. Truly a secret beach – as no one was there. Only the sand, the sea and signs saying that was the private territory.
I did some digging on the Internet. And found an article about this place with photos of the time when the resort was still operating – and believe me, that place looked amazing. That was known as JS Huts. But then I found a lot of complaints about this place back from 2010. How the owners of the hotel were scheming with rented bikes, harassing those who wanted to leave earlier and even attacking them.
