“Clean beach, good food”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The beach is fairly clean and there are several great restaurants to dine at during your stay. My wife and I got massages each morning at a parlor on the beach, then had lunch and spent the rest of the day sipping cocktails and snacking. We were approached by many vendors throughout the day. My wife succeeded in bartering with them considerably, and we got some great deals on sun dresses. Also, rent a sea doo if you're into that. It's super fun, cheap, and they give you a whole lot of freedom to ride all over the place (By U.S. standards, it would be really unsafe)

“stay at bungalow directly at the beach”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Even if there are no waves you can walk about 200 m into the sea. It is inexpensive compared to chaweng Ort Mae nam . It is a good and quiet place for families and kids.

“Very busy - good place for watersports”
Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

This beach is very cramped and not the cleanest but if you want to do water sports this is the place. There's lots of people offering them so check out the prices to et the best deal.

“Is kinda quiet there but there's a big Tesco for grocery if you are staying in a villa with kitchen as you can cook.”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Heavy traffic on the road plus a lot of slow driving (around 40km/hr ) taxi around there to hunt for customer.

“One of the best beaches in Samui”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I'd say, if you want beach chairs, restaurants, shops right at the beach - this place is for you. It's not as busy as Chaweng, but the convenience is still there. But be aware that there are many completely deserted beaches in Samui that are worth checking out.
