“We loved Silver Beach or 'Crystal Bay'”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were confused as to the name of this beach, is it Silver beach or Crystal Bay? One of the staff at the hotel we were staying in said it was actually called hat ton takieng in the thai language!

Anyway we stayed on this beach at Crystal Bay Resort and it was superb. This beach is like something from a postcard. The sea is crystal clear and the sand is the really white soft type that comes from coral. We went to all the major beaches on Samui and this was the most beautiful and our favourite by far!

“Have seen much better”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This beach was highly recommended but to be honest we prefer Chewang, this was a little dirty and not as impressive as described. It really depends on your expectations, perhaps ours were a little high,

“A pretty sandy beach and cove”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Just outside Lamai (on the road to Chaweng) Silver Beach is a pleasant beach served by two restaurants attached to small hotels/resorts.
The sand is good, the water seemed clean and it is a a lovely place.
The Silver Beach Resort restaurant offered the standard Thai choices at very good prices and reasonable quality. Service was a tad slow, but it is a very laid back type of area.
Well worth a visit if you want some quieter beach tiome away from the bust Chawend and Lamai beaches.

“quiet, friendly, family safe beach”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

There are 4 or 5 small properties along this beach with inexpensive restaurants and beach massage places. Sand is nice and water is swimmable. We enjoyed passing a good chunk of a day here as a family.
