Pretty good. A bit small. One of the better beaches on Samui. Good for all ages and people. Id reccommend it to everyone. Gets a bit boring (and i love beaches and never usually find them boring). Make this one a short visit - max three nights!

This beach was filthy with trash. It is not a good swimming beach as there are big waves. Most of the hotels are shanty shacks and do not do much to clean the beach. The need to start working on cleaning it up or tourists will go away! I have been to many beaches in Thailand and this has been... More

Truly disgusting beach -- when the weather was good - the locals worked hard to clear the trash as it came onshore -- and generally do a good job pushing it back off the sand as the tide recedes. -- however after two days of storms the beach was COVERD with garbage -- truly disgusting garbage.

Nice and not very crowded as Chaveng. Long and sandy. Easy to get to Chaveng by motorbike or tuk-tuk.

Lamai beach, the second largest on Koh Samui, jostles for attention with Chaweng. The beach has a different appeal; during the day, the restaurants and bars hum with activity and at night it transforms into a wildly exciting place. Many health spas and meditation centres, a monastery and museum among other places to see transform Lamai into a happening beach.... More

Very nice beach in Lamai. Not overly crowded and there are still spots where you can get away from the crowds and vendors. Also several good restaurants along this beach and beach front massages.

Lamai is the best location to stay if you are planning to spend your vacation at Koh Samui with your family. One can get almost anything at the local night market near Lamai beach. The beach itself is quiet & filled with peace and is far (~15 km) from Chaweng beach.
