Beautiful beach but very shallow

Came here pretty early in the morning and it was very peaceful, water was beautiful and calm. Got very busy later on in the morning with everyone setting up under the trees... read more

We read from other reviews that this is among the best beaches on Koh Samui, and so naturally wanted to check it out. Silver Beach is way nicer than Lamai Beach (which we hated due to the coarse sand filled with lots of small broken shells). It's a small stretch of beach, with waters so shallow you can easily walk... More

We caught a boat here from Lamai Beach (which we weren't happy with) and thought it would have been awesome to have stayed here at Silver Beach - the beach was clean and great sand and the water was clean and clear and really comfortable to swim in. Definitely a great day when we went there by boat!

Big wide beach lots of shade trees, accommodation and restaurants. Didn't feel crowded but busy. Gets you away from the craziness of Chewang Beach I'm told.

White sand, beautiful clear water, and beautiful views. Surrounding rocks in the water make this beach more unique than others. We have been to Samui twice and always visit this beach more than others. I would highly recommend to beach lovers wanting somewhere relaxing and beautiful.

Came here pretty early in the morning and it was very peaceful, water was beautiful and calm. Got very busy later on in the morning with everyone setting up under the trees. Water and views were beautiful but very shallow, water was knee height at best unless you trek really far out and navigate the rocks.

We found the beach to be pleasant but crowded. Beware of some of the stones/rocks that can be found as you enter the beach. Overall a small, nice but crowded beach. Would recommended for a visit.

We came to Silver beach after being disappointed at the beach in Bophut Fishermen's Village area) were we stayed, which looked amazing in the pictures but in fact the water were very unclear and not good enough for swimming in our opinion. Silver beach was everything we looked for - beautiful quiet beach with clear turquoise water and white sand.... More

Nice small beach. Nice views but not so good for swimming. Be careful with the stones under the water

They are rebuilding parts of the area which is creating a lot of noise. In front of our room they were demolishing another room which was rather annoying at 8am. The beach is nice but crowded. The staff is friendly and helpfull, the room is basic but has all you'll need for your daily routine.
