Great beach. Warm waters about waist height. Sand is coarse but beautiful! not too busy and great to explore the whole stretch for a big walk! If you find Mr. Jack on the beach it is well worth buying yourself some of his freshly cut-to-order fruit! mango, pineapple, coconut you name it! you wont find it better than Mr. Jack's!... More

the beach is very nice, but of course there a lot of tourists. though, there are no big hotel complexes which spoil the view. every travel budget will be met with a suiting hotel/resort. the walking sales men and women at the beach are generally kind and dont try to push you into buying something. but still it could disturb...

While staying on Chaweng Beach, we decided to hop on a scooter taxi and spend the day in Lamai. A lovely scenic ride to a much quieter "village" than Chaweng. Beautiful beach- very quiet and stopped in the Main Street for a drink and snack- a bit cheaper than in Chaweng but definitely less of a touristy vibe!

I love this beach. We normally go there at night for dinner. There are some nice restaurants right on the beach. After dinner you can walk the streets of Lamai and visit some nice bars.

Fantastic place. Great long road with heaps of shops and bars. Excellent in the Wet Season when the heat builds up and it pours down, you can just duck into a side bar for an hour and hang it out with a couple of cold beers. Not as hectic as Chaweng, much more chilled but heaps of good food to... More
