If your after a quiet, 'real' Thailand beach feel this is the place to go. The whole island is perfect but Sanom Beach especially is an oasis in the bustling tourist trap of Thailand.

Stayed for 5 days and enjoyed it . Was so pleased not to be on Pattaya Beach which is too busy and so noisey at night. You get a bit of 'old Thailand' here. Well worth the effort if you don't mind the bugs. Go to Sunrise and Sunset beach for variety and avoid Pattaya. Also avoid the snorkelling tours as they are very disappointing if you after good coral.

Sanom Beach is one of the places i would recommend on Lipe which becomes more and more like a target for package tourists, families and the rest of the travel circus. Most of them settle on Pattaya Beach which is by now filled with drinking stalls, massage places and the longtal boats in front of the coast waiting for costumers are giving you the feeling you sleep next to a parking lot. Sanom instead is a bit secluded but still perfectly reachable by a ten minute walk. dont expect to much for the huts though, very simple huts with a bed, moskitonet, running cold water and electricity from 5pm to 9am. yes, there are animals (frogs, rats, sometimes snakes) but the staff takes care of it when you alarm them. some of the (bungalow 1-4) have great seaview and stand directly over the stones of the beach, perfect for a hammock on the veranda. the bar at the place is ok for what you need during the day, for a propper breakfast though a little walk to Lipe Cafe or so might be better. From Sanom (as from all places on Lipe) you can always catch a longtail to other parts of the island or snorkeling trips and so on. the staff runs a bbq twice a week which is much nicer than the other bbqs at the larger beaches.

We stayed on Koh Lipe for 8 days in beginning of November. Initially booked other bungalows located on Pattaya Beach, but had to leave them after first 2 nights as we could not sleep because of rats. It was biggest surprise for us as rats are really serious problem for Koh Lipe and most of bungalow resorts have problems with them. So after 2 nights we had to change our place and went for a short walk around the island to review other bungalows. Sanom Beach was absolutely amazing. This place with its perfect location, small and peacefull beach and friendly and warm owners was our choice and we could not make better decision.

Bungalow was very simple, but clean and cosy. Terrace with its view definitely made our stay. We had Bungalow #3, it is the one located closest to main building just few meters from water and sandy beach. We enjoyed it very much and had great time during our stay at Sanom Beach Resort. Lack of hot water, electricity during day hours and wifi was not a problem for us as we were not looking for 5* resort on Koh Lipe, but experiences and Samon Beach with its location and surroundings is very unique and highly recommended travel experience on this island.

Room tip: It is possible to order boat to pickup you directly from Sanom Beach

Sanom beach is a short walk from Pataya beach, it's small, pretty with some nice trees for shade at the back of the beach. You reach it either by boat or there's a woden walkway around the rocks at the end of Pataya beach (you walk under Pataya Song Bungalows)
The setting for the bungalows is pretty idyllic and you are spared most of the noise of longtails that can blight some parts of Pataya... also the music from late night parties at the bars on Pataya beach seems to not quite reach here.
The bungalows are basic, but if you just need a bed, a deck and a bathroom then are fine for a stay on a tropical beach, they are expensive for what's on offer, but then most of Lipe is and the setting makes up for the huts. The owners are really nice, very helpful as are all the staff. Food here is fine, mostly traveller staples, although they do do fish BBQs if enough people are interested.
