Located at southern end of Chaweng and before Lamai. Only shade is under a few trees which keeps numbers down! Softest sand on earth. Really easy lovely snorkelling. Highly recommended!

We loved Silver Beach... So nice to find a spot that isn't full of tourists. The beach is swept clean each morning and the snorkeling is great! Spent almost every day on this beach.

Such a beautiful beach, hard to park (thankfully) making it normally pretty quiet. The setting is very much what you imagine as Thailand!

Great beach, well sheltered so good if you have kids. Beautiful clear water and white sand. There are few loungers on the beach so trying to find shade can be hard.

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor we had to visit this beach. Travelling with 2 kids - 3 and 5 - we wanted to find a beach where they could safely swim and relax as well.. Silver Beach is all that.. Besides great white sand...More

you really need to get on a boat and visit the islands. generally there is no good off-beach snorkelling in Koh Samui. same goes for Kao Lak - you need to go to the Similan or Surin islands.
