This is a great area: beach, restaurants, variety of hotels and bungalows to choose from. I stayed at the Sea Breeze Place ....more modern and upscale than their bungalows. The pool is great and the service from all the staff is Excellent. I looked forward to a return visit.

Lamai beach is as 'tourist's you can get. Full of backpacking tourists, some woo-woo travellers there for yoga and other programmes and a bunch of low end Thai eateries, souvenir shops and massage places. It has a large Tesco Lotus Department store not far, a big temple and the Lamai village is further South. If you are vegetarian - there... More

I'm personally crazy about Choengmon Beach, but Lamai's a close second. Great for swimming, walking, shopping, and eating...slower and quieter than Chaweng...and, well, just lovely!

It takes about 45 minutes to walk from one end of the Lamai beach to the end. Nice coarse sand, emerald blue waves which lap at your feet, a beach filled with endless number of resorts and sun decks, but clean. There are two places which offer you water sports and during the day many vendors with their coconut water,... More

The sea is so clear however there are jelly fish warnings so didn't fancy going to far in, also the beach is very... More

It is a busy beach with water sports activites to keep you engaged. Range of water activities keep you busy here and with trained professionals to guide you through the activities, the fun quotient is quite high. This beach is also secluded at places for spending some quite, alone time.
