Lamai beach

Good beach with lots of activity and good restaurants where you can dine right on the beach. A bit rough seas for swimming at that time.

Great beach for all. Many places to eat or have a massage and close to shops. Good sandy beach and clean. Close enough for taxi drop off from other beaches/areas.

Quite rocky underfoot and a sudden dip can cause problems getting in or out of the water. Plenty of good priced eateries along the beach but be careful of the higher end places that put 17% taxes onto your bill. Lots of debris around today but it was quite rough yesterday so it it is to be expected. sun bed... More

I see this beach every week and its very nice . Not so bussy and most of the time very good for a swim ... You can come with young children if the sea is calm . Some restaurants where you can eat some food and lay down ....

We did not discover the northern part of the beach until day 5 of a 7 day holiday - much more swimmer friendly - our hotel beach front was like a washing machine and collected all the beach trash every day - shame!

The difference is obvious when compare Chaweng beach to Lamai beach. Lamai beach is smaller & has lesser crowd. The beach somehow is not as beautiful. The shops in the surrounding areas are less lively even at night. The daytime activities in Lamai are nothing much, boring even. The facilities, road & sidewalk condition need uplifting. My preference goes to... More
