Small beach.lovely views.

Silver beach is a small stretch of beach, but the views around the beach are lovely. There are a few restaurants around where you can sit and hang out on a hot afternoon.

Easily the best of a bad bunch on this island. Come for the day or stay in one of the resorts, prices start from around 1300 1400 baht. We used to go the bikes from Lamai and it takes no time at all to get there. Hit the market first and pick up lunch and you'll be picnicking on the... More

I found this again and again in Koh Samui: The location looks good on photos, but the atmosphere is not so nice. This beach is OK. But I did not even choose to take a swim. Not really beautiful and clean. About 5 restaurants on that small beach.

If you enjoy rules and regulations from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you will love this resort. Accomodation is average, but comfortable. The Shower was a shocker. The manager is like a sergeant major ruling over her troops. Don't step out of line as the list of fines are long. If you want to stay in... More

Very nice, calm water, not windy, not strong currents. We took a cab from Chaweng Beach for 300b (about us$9). There is a public access to the beach from the Crystal Bay restaurant. The left side of the beach is nicer and you won't find as many rocks compared to the middle/right side of the beach

No beach in Koh Samui is idyllic. This is one of better ones as quite small, cove like. No beach selling and only a couple of bar restaurants so felt a bit quieter and more natural.

As other reviewers have said the view is stunning but the litter is a big problem. The tide seems to wash it in on a daily basis. There was only one guy with a rather rustic looking rake patrolling the shoreline and raking up small piles of seaweed and debris. This beach is in need of a major litter management... More
