“Much cleaner than Chaweng”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

The beach was quite long and had nowhere near the amount of rubbish as Chaweng (this condition would be similar to the beaches located in Patong and Kuta where most of the concentration of tourists are in those areas). Our resort which fronted Lamai beach had its own little roped off off area for swimming and loungers. The water was clean and warm, and great for a swim at any time of the day or night. The sand is much coarsert than we have in Australia, but is not unpleasant to walk on. Overall a very relaxing and safe beach for all ages.

“Relaxed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Beautiful beach, chilled out atmosphere, nice people, good food. Not as busy as chaweng beach or as loud and partyish but only 20 minutes away in taxi which costs about 200bht. Wish we could have stayed in koh samui longer!!!!

“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

We stayed at Cheong Mon Beach for 12N but visited Lamai one afternoon/evening. Lovely to walk along and the water looked clean. Friday market was good - not as big as in Bophut. Wouldn't stay in Lamai as Cheong Mon is a better area.
