Most beaches are alike in koh samui, but I would say the closest to chaweng beach is lamai, the waters are deep but clear. Not too bad a place to swim

I used to spend more or less half of the year in Samui. Lamaï is for me the best in this island. Between Chaweng the most noisy and touristic place and the quiet of the south. After you chose 😊🙏🏻
