The beach is super quiet, we are staying at a villa a 100m by the beach for a week and hardly see anyone around. The downside is that because it's not a popular beach there are not many bars/restaurants. Very limited choices, nobody will bother you or try to sell you something as well. You can enjoy the whole day... More

IMO the esatern part of the island is over crowded and yes although it is beautiful I personally don't like all the hussel and bustle that goes on in Chaweng. This part and specially the southwestern part of Ko samui are the best.

This beach is usually very quiet as it is located by several residential and small resorts, plus it is protected by an offshore reef, so the waters more often than not are calm. Not quite as soft/ sandy as some Samui beaches but the peace and quiet outweighs that! If you look you will find a restaurant or two to... More

For me this is the area / beach you go to get away from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng, Lamai and even Maenam. You can spend a day on a quiet beach, not being hassled by vendors, eating lunch in a local beach side restaurant and generally getting a feel for the real Samui, not the commercialized one. Bang...

My partner and I lived in Bang Por for 5 months in 2013 and used this beach regularly. From Jan - Mar it's a great beach that's rarely used and sea level was great for swimming. After March the sea levels dropped and there were rocks that made swimming difficult. If you walk for 3-5 mins you'll feel like it's... More

This is the nearest beach to our hotel and while it has sand, sea and palm trees, I think it is not among the best beaches on the island. It is a bit scruffy, there is not much sand (perhaps a few feet at high tide) and the waters are not crystal clear for snorkelling. There are the usual pleasant... More

A lovely, quiet beach facing the North side of Koh Samui so it is shaded by gorgeous Palms on shore earlier in the day day than most of the other beaches on the island which I found too hot for running on. Many runners I see including ourselves use this beach because it is cooler and more shaded perfect for... More
