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

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.

This has been our favourite spot on Samui! The sand is really soft and white, there's picturesque rocks that make for lovely photos and it's great for snorkelling! We even found some coral reefs when we swam out a bit further! The only negative point were the number of fishing trawlers in the distance. We counted 16! Guessing that's why... More

Unlike other beaches in the area the silver beach is small (a couple of hundred meters long). What makes it special are the large rocks, soft white sand and shady areas. The water is shallow and there are no waves. It's really pretty. There are however many rocks and corals, which makes it a bit tricky to swim. I cut... More

Great Beach that has something for everyone. To either side of the Horseshoe shape bay are small coral reefs - nothing outstanding but certainly with exploring. Nice and sandy bottom near the middle with on a few rocky outcrops. No strong tides were experienced during our visit. Plenty of eateries along the length of the bay, all very similar. There...
