For the travelers, visiting Koh Samui, Lamai Beach is a must go... The color of the water in a sunny day is breath-taking... Hin Ta and Hin Yah rock is also a popular spot to visit... here, the road side shops can be a good option for purchasing memento and gifts, but bargaining is required... Most of the day trip... More

Stretching for more than a mile along the eastern coast of Samui, Lamai is great for watching sunrises and is very good for swimming. It has good depth close to the shore, but still has some place for children to play in the water. It's extremely clean and offers some great walks and good for jogging. Lamai offers a great... More

The beach is clean.There is also an interesting rocks which they call Grandma and Grandpa Rocks. There is nothing to do here except to just... More

Lamai is one of the major beaches on Ko Samui. It is on the east central part of the island and so offers a great sunrise view. Less crowded than its sister Chaweng, Lamai has some upscale resorts and is more family friendly without the bars, nightclub scene. 10 minutes scooter ride away from Chaweng & Bophut, it is an...

We visited all the beaches on Koh Samui and I liked this the best. 15 mins from our hotel in Chaweng - this beach isn't as big but it is a lot less crowded than Chaweng. Lovely beach. The sea shelves away quite quickly but having nearly drowned in a rip tide at Chaweng, we stayed in the shallows. Lots... More

Beatiful people parading down a beautiful beach in the beautiful weather. What more could you ask? Sit on the red sunbeds/chairs of the Bamboo bar (I think that's right) and you may get the odd person trying to sell you something, but they soon pass you by and you can also get good drinks and decent food, too. The sand... More
