Someone call it Silver Beach - others say Crystal beach. Anyway - on some special days this is the only one open beach, where you can go for snorkeling with an acceptable underwater view. The restaurants offer good Thai & European food. Have fun with your children over there.

Hard to find but worth the effort. A beautiful quiet and private beach that a few resorts have access to and anyone else who can find it. A beautiful little beach and a perfect way to spend the day

This in our opinion is the best beach on Koh Samui.We came here twice during our stay as parking is easy and with warm clear water to swim.Swim to the left as you face beach...Less rocks.Not as busy as other beaches and not as littered like we seen on some others.A couple of beach restaurants and bars close by too....

We were staying down the road at Lamai Beach and were told that Silver Beach was a nicer beach, so decided to check it out. Yes the sand is soft and white, and it is a popular spot with protected areas to swim, but accessing the beach was either through resorts or a restaurant, which was a bit strange.

White sand, gently sloping beach, protected sea, Coral formations, fishes, good visibility, no current. Good for sun bathing, snorkeling, beginning diving, rock jumping. Just go in, buy a drink, laze on the beach. Approach is through a restaurant of the same name. Good crowd, no hassles.

It's without a doubt for me, the most beautiful beach of the ones I visited in Ko Samui. It's not big, but it has lovely views with it's round rock formations. There are no waves and it's perfect for kids. We had lunch in the Silver Beach Restaurant, and both the food and drinks were very nice.

I come here every trip for a swim and relax at the local beach bar. Silver Beach has several nearby resorts, so staying here is not a problem...just book ahead, a few massage beds are usually busy. The water is fairly clean and you can snorkle here, just be careful when you walk in to the water as quite a... More
