Lamai Beach is Quiet and Peaceful area in Samui. I've been there 3 times for long periods (2 + weeks). Great water sport activities and good restaurants.

Lamai Beach is nice but not my preferred beach on Koh Samui! It is touristic place fool with restaurants.Restaurants on this beach look very romantic and nice, but you can find much better ones inside Koh Samui. My tip, avoid eating there and discover more authentic places on this wonderful island; as for relaxing on the beach, go more south... More

Lovely beach day time for sun bathing and recreation with food sellers along the beach cooking fresh cuisine at very reasonable prices with variety of food and fruits. In the evening it comes to life with sea front views from bars to bean bags on the beach and always a show or entertainer to watch. Great for families or couples... More

Wonderful swimming beach, we stayed in Chaweng and made a day trip to Lamai, wish we had this beach outside our room. At Lamai we lay on a lounger & umbrella from one of the many bar/restaurants that offer them. Had a massage, swam, drank, read, a wonderful relaxing day at a beautiful location!

A nice beach more quite than the one in Chaweng. At this moment there are mostly families and couples that rule the beach, for more party a like bars you better move to the more busy Chaweng. I personally love the relaxedness of Lamai, its a little more friendly and it has a little bit more the feeling of a... More

Not the best beach in Thailand but still good. The sand is quite coarse and heavy so hard to walk through it. But it's still a Thai beach so quite nice! The beach is also not too crowded.
