Better beach for swimming than Chaweng

I have been staying at Chaweng Beach to the north of this beach and although Chaweng is nice it is more susceptible to the low tides and makes it difficult at times to swim... read more

The beach itself is extremely clean, never crowded and the sea is pristine. There are numerous resorts along... More

The staff at the resort warned people not to walk in the water without some kind of foot cover because of the amount of broken bottles and debris.I was so surprised at how dirty it was and most of...

Lamai Beach, was right out in front of our Resort the Samui Jasmine, great during the day for a swim or just a relax, there are ample spots along the beach to have a drink or perhaps a meal

Today we went to lamai beach by motorbike since we wanted to shop at tesco and the place was on the way... We first stopped at the beginning and the water was greenish and smelled, but later during the day we decided to see grandma and grandpa rocks, and by mistake we stopped on a strip of beach before the...

What a nice quaint beachside community. With lovely shops and the most awesome café, KHUN CHAI CAFE. Owned and operated by Moo sand his family, this café offered lovely fresh seafood Thai dishes along with an entire menu of choices. A wonderful experience. Thank you.

One of the calmer and more peaceful beaches in Koh samui. Its a good stretch where one can jog, with a lot of hotels and restaurants lined alongside. Its clean for a major portion and the waters are very good.
