Puek Tian beach is a popular photographic spot with many sculptures from characters created by Thailand’s most famous poet, Sunthorn Phoo, rising from the sea.
The poem, Phra Aphai Mani, depicts an Ogress who disguised herself as a beautiful temptress to win the love of the hero and imprison him on the beach. But he discovers her true identity (and ugliness) and with the help of a mermaid, he escapes.
As a location, there are better beaches nearby if you are actually looking for a beach-based activity. However, the true attraction of this site are the statues, which are not too far away from the beach promenade. There are also a few restaurant/cafes here, so you can enjoy a drink or snack under the spell of the Ogress!!
