Amazing waves and clear waters...a great beach to relax and take in the sun and enjoy the day or nite. Lots of restaurants around and shopping places.

One of the most popular beaches in Samui. The fine white sand was soft to the touch and the waters ideal for swimming. The downside to this beach area is the huge crowds of people. If you want peace and quiet, this isn't the beach for you. There are plenty of bars, restos, and hotels along the beach, you have... More

Chaweng Beach is a great place to relax, have a massage, go for swim or just do nothing. Bit of everything for everyone. Grab a scooter or just walk and you will be amazed at what you will find just a bit further down each road. Top place to relax.

You can tell this is the main beach on Samui as soon as you get to it. The beach is full of water sport rentals from jet skis, banana boats or flyboards.Beach vendors carrying around all sorts of stuff and snacks. The beach itself is beautiful and the sand is a fine powder. You can get everything in and around... More

We just loved Chaweng Beach it was so peaceful, relaxing and great swimming. It reminded us so much of Bali before they stopped the hawkers on Sanur Beach. We loved the people and the bartering and being able it just lay back with drink in hand and do some market type shopping.

Have been too Samui many times and also did stay in other quite beaches on the island, but Chaweng beach is still the one I will keep coming back and stay close to. While you know how to choose a good resort location, you are able to keep both busy and quite life together on Chaweng beach.
