“Lamai is nicer!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We just went to visit Chaweng Beach but wherever we seemed to go the beach loungers belonged to private resorts. Perhaps we were in the wrong part. There were a lot of jet skis around so I imagine it gets very noisy.
We returned to Lamai which is quieter at the Southern end. Bliss!

“Best beach on Samui but not perfect at all”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

It's Thailand, so don't expect a super clean beach. Hotel stuff are doing a good job cleaning up the beach but that doesn't make the water any cleaner.

Also, dozens of jet skis are running through the water ask the time, often quite close to the beach. If you'd go snorkeling you'd but your life in danger (not that there's much to see under water).

“Samui entertainment at its best”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Anyone staying in Samui should visit Chaweng for shoping, dinner, a late drink. The New York of Samui....

“Oil Spill on Chaweng Beach”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

There is an oil spill in the waters between Surat Thani mainland and Samui. The oil is washing up on Chaweng and Lamai Beach for 10 days and getting worse. It gets on your skin and doesn't wash off and is photosensitive--it causes skin rash.

There is so much garbage on Samui beaches and now this oil spill. We will not go back.
I hope the Thai people learn good business requires good stewardship.

Thaivisa.com has many current threads on this topic.
