“Great Beach”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I love this little beach tucked away between the hills. The sand is soft, its never crowded, the view is great, there is no boats to really worry about, you can walk out a ways yet its deep enough to swim, and to top it off there is some nice rock formations. The only problem is parking. Its non existent. Either you stay at the hotel or you park at the restaurant have breakfast then head out to the beach.

“Relax calm waters”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Nice relaxing clean sandy beach. Good for kids. Clear water but need to be cautious when walking in the sea as there are sharp corals around.

“Gorgeous relaxing beach with everything you need.”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Our hotel manager in bophut recommended this little beach and we are so in love with it! It has everything you need- beautiful view, soft sand, crystal clear water, the best (and cheapest) massages on the beach, modern little cafe (open 10am-5pm) for delicious drinks and tasty food (also one of the cheapest even though it looks expensive from the modern decking and layout) for lunch with the best view ever and the friendliest manager. Beach + massages + food = perfect. We spent many days scootering here just for the relaxation and peace- makes you feel miles away from the busy side of samui. A must for anyone travelling to samui (we read hotel reviews for silver beach and crystal bay and wouldn't recommend staying in them , just visiting the beach there) oh and there's also an outdoor shower for anyone visiting the beach at the bottom of crystal bay resort.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Lovely little beach with a cheap restaurant run by a local thai family. Worth a visit if you are zooming around the island on bikes and need a stop off and a swim.

“NOT the best beach”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We found this small beach very disappointing and rather over crowded. Nothing special! Best beach on koh samui is by the Nikki Beach resort as it has no rocks at all, it's huge, has v pure sand and was completely deserted when we visited.
