Beaches of Koh Samui

Chaweng Beach

The most popular section of beach in Samui is Chaweng Beach. Its close proximity to the airport and the main shopping district makes the pristine, 6km section of white sand quite busy. There are many beachfront restaurants and bars along Chaweng beach. Once the sun goes down, Chaweng transforms into a trendy night spot with packed clubs dancing to international DJ’s.

Lamai Beach

Just south of Chaweng Beach is Lamai Beach. While it tends to be quieter than Chaweng, it still offers many activities, restaurants and accommodation. Lamai Beach is great for family holidays. At the southern end of the beach are the famous Grandfather and Grandmother rock formations called Hin Ta - Hin Yai. 

Bophut Beach

The area around Bophut beach still has that small fishing village feel. While there are newer accommodation and spas popping up in the area, many of the original buildings still remain. Scuba lessons or day dives to sites in the famous Ang Thong Marine Park, Sail Rock or Koh Tao Island are also available from the dive shops in the area. 

While there are beautiful beaches in the main tourists areas there are many more that are well worth a visit.
