Chaweng beach is beautiful and very crowded some places, some hotels have a "private beach" for hotel guests only and those places are alot more quiet. I would recomend a stroll on the beach so you can see how beautiful it is. You will also find alot of restaurants and bars, if you see a couple walking the beach selling... More

This is one of the most beautiful beaches that I have seen in the world and I've seen a few. It is certainly one of the best on Ko Samui. The sand is brilliant white and fine - a perfect place to pass the day: sunbathing, swimming or just walking along the surf.

Its a pretty nice place, at least it was in the past - except if you are looking for party nights out, or bathing in the sun. You must be aware that on every step you will be hassled by local business man or woman to buy something, if you refuse they night and will abuse you in many occasions,... More

The Chaweng beach is the closest beach of Ko Samui Airport and closest of the shopping area. From one side we have the commercial activity and on the beach side the hotels. The island was very crowded of tourists. There are plenty hotels, the majority are cheap hotels. The beach is very clean, there are a lot of bars and... More

Nice enough but when we went (March) there was a lot of rubbish on the beach that wasn't cleaned up. The water was very murky with lots of weed and scum on the surface, it just felt a bit tatty.

The Chaweng beach definitely is the best beach in downtown Koh Samui. The sand is white and clean. The water is shallow, what is excellent for families with small kids. Sometimes there's a lot of seaweed in the water and during the low tide there are some exposed rock/coral that can hurt your foot if you step on it. One... More

By far the nicest beach in Samui. There are the relaxing parts and then the parts to hang out if you want some drinks and entertainment. Something for every beach goer.

It's an assault on all your senses at once. Good shopping and loads off nice places to eat at. Very cheap. Lots of places to stay at, and a very big range to chooses from. Busy night life. Clean beaches and loads of activities to choose from. If you wants suit made this is the place.
