The beach is a great place to spend the day. If you want swimming, jet skiing, sunbathing and having fun in the sun then this is the place to visit. Lots of eateries along the length of the beach. Food is reasonably priced.

Yes this beach is beautiful, with its warm, shallow blue waters and soft sands. But for me, it is way too crowded to truly relax or swim. We came during "off season" and there were still hundreds (thousands?) of people swarming the beach and water. You have to rent the chairs if you want to sit in them, and people... More

Lovely white soft sandy beach with so many different water sports to choose from or just chill in the sun with a cocktail from the long row of bar and restaurants along the whole length of the beach, well worth a visit

Since it's so shallow the water is heated up! very much fun for kids and 'adults':) nice restaurants and cafes where you can rent sunbeds. Also some veeery good bars! I highly recommend Elephant bar where they have amazing drinks and shakes! If you order anything you get to use their pool, free sunbed and also complimentary towel. The staff... More

Whole stretch of beach with all different resorts and restaurants. You need to turn in to the small alley or to resorts in order to get to the beach. Clear water and friendly vendors. If you are not staying at one of the beach resort, please bring your own towels.

Crowded people. As in the title, the beach is not clean as there are some local people remotely selling drinks and there are some leftovers. Maybe is a good place if you want to chill around, but not snorkelling.

Everything is in the title of my review : Just like all the beaches in samui : dirty and crowded. My conclusion is : avoid samui it's overcrowded and dirty now just like pattaya. You can not even swim as you can see the typical blue pipes rejecting used water in the sea and right on the beach. Disgusting. We... More

My family loved this beach. Best place for family is probably at King Prawn restaurant. We have 3 children at 9, 10 and 14 years old.
