Peaceful stretch of beach along the north coast of Samui. The waters are calm yet very nice in colour on a good day with really great view of the neighbouring Koh Phangan. Quite pleasant to take some light stroll along the beach leading up to some of the island's large resorts, albeit the sand is a little rough compared to the likes of Chaweng or Lamai. Overall, nice breezy spot for some peaceful stroll; although I'm sure it is like that for most places with social distancing / breaks enforced. Definitely great spot for photos with scenic island views.

I really like this place because of Koh Samui. Considered to be the second largest island in Thailand that is still full of charm. Spending time in Bophut is a great way to experience the local culture. The village's beachfront restaurants and pubs are the perfect place to watch the sunset.

Beautiful sandy beach with hotels and little bars to stop at. Not crowded and great for swimming and walking with your family. Highly recommend staying here if you want an uncrowded beach but still want to dine out or have a drink at a beach bar.

Maenam Beach is my favorite place in Koh Samui. If you dont know where to stay, you should definitely try this place. The village is local and lively . We stayed at Khwan Beach resort and we really enjoyed our stay

Clean , beautiful. One of the best beaches in Koh Samui imo. Sun rise is especially beautiful. Definitely a must visit when on the island. Private access if you stay at Santiburi resort.

Clean sandy Beach, many resorts and restaurants. The beach is long enough for a run or a walk. Pets can easily roam. Reallt great sunsets every night. Water is safe to swim in, no rough waves. Usually a nice constant breeze.

I clearly do not understand those that say that this beach is beautiful. The only thing that I found nice was that it was quiet.
Apart from this it was a deserted beach, left at its own luck, full of garbages, plastic bottles, many dry and cutted trees and the sea completely foggy and dirty.
A total dissapointment for the area although I understood that everything should be good long time agao but now not.

I am always of the opinion that Maenam Beach has much to offer. There is no contest. It is never crowded and you can enjoy some solitude away from the maddening crowds of Chaweng and Lamai beaches. It's easy to keep an eye on the kids as there are fewer people about and the water is mostly calm.. Looking out over the ocean to Koh Panyang and the small boats passing in between is a very pleasant and soothing sight. In the cooler part of the afternoon there are some fishermen trowing nets and catching some small fish. The kids have fun wirh this as it is basically shoreline fishing and Thais love kids so the fishermen allow them to see what is happening. We like to take a little picnic and plenty of water and just lie out on the sand occassionally going back into the shade of the coconut trees. No need to worry about going hungry as there are little bamboo eateries dotted about. In any case old ladies straddle up and down the beach and sell their cooked chicken and deliciously prepared papaya salad. Am going for a quick splash in the water. It is all very nice and the feeling is as if you have the beach all to yourself.
