The beach was not good, water to shallow in front of Chaweng Regent Beach Resort, but if you walked a 1km down the beach then the beach was absolutely beautiful and you could swim too

The attraction in this island is the beaches, Chaweng is a good beach, only problem are the jet skiers, they control areas of the beach, restricting the swimmers to certain areas. In my opinion, there are too many vendors and they detract from the great beach that it could be.

It is a great place to relax. Can take a boat and go into the sea or play around with the water scooter. People are awesome...amazing food and cafes. Very de-stressing and loads of fun!

Great mix of relaxing as well as lively beach. Central place at Samui. Was our basecamp so we spent most of our time there with no regret

Chaweng is east coast party central on Koh Samui, with miles of shopping, bars, restaurants (selling the same stuff as everywhere else we went in Thailand), lots of traffic, and a decent (but not great) beach. The day we spent on Chaweng beach, the longest on Koh Samui, was a bit overcast at first and the waves were fabulous crashing... More

We went twice to Chaweng beach in the evening to do some shopping on Koh Samui and get some nice dinner. I would especially recommend on of the place to buy some nice paintings.

We spent 8 nights in Koh Samui and visited Lamai, Fishermans village and every other corner of the island using a motorbike. We kept returning to Chaweng for shopping and eating, not the beach. The beach is average, not much swimming but nice to walk along. However, there is good shopping for purses, watches, shirts, and everything else that is... More

Chaweng and Koh Phangan beaches are some of the nicest in Asia, nicer than brown beaches of Bali and other places. I like the spectacle of life on the beach at Chaweng with plenty of beachfront bars and cafes.
