This attraction would, otherwise, be special, if it weren’t for all the trash scattered on the beach. The police were making an effort to clean up the garbage, but really why is there so much?

Beautiful and clean beach. The mermaid statue is the main attraction in Songkhla. Children would love the horse and pony ride at the beach. Plenty of street food offered.

I went to Songkhla all the way from Hatyai just to see this statue, because I was rated as #1 attraction in Songkhla. Other than the statue, there's nothing much to see in that area apart of from the beach.

Located at Samila Beach, this statue is immensely popular with tourists and visitors queuing to snap photos against the background of the Gulf of Siam. Beware of the slippery uneven black rocks especially on drizzly days!

I suppose this is worth seeing but you'll be lucky to take a photo of the mermaid without crowds sitting on it. It's a poor copy of the Copenhagen mermaid but I'm sure it's made money for the shops and street sellers next to it...More

Not too crowded and the beach is nice. Plenty of things to do there. Have great seafood, or picnic on the beach under shady trees. A lot of hawkers selling street food.
