Cherating peels forever, up tp 1.5km along a sandbar. Surfable even on small 1 ft swell it just keeps peeling. Barrells at top of point and throughout on longer days. High quality wave. Some locals and a couple of expats.
bigger and just as perfect sand point is situated just north of Cherating (visable from water)always a few feet bigger with rides up to 1.2km.
Other beach breaks around the area.
Cherating only breaks during Monsoon season (Oct-April). Surfed up to 8ft.
Water is often brown and muddy from rainforest run-off.
