Most Beautiful Beaches in Koh Samui – Splendid Attractions for the Sun and Sand Lover

The island of Koh Samui is one of Thailand's most attractive areas and a popular visitor destination. In Koh Samui, you will find a host of lovely beaches that will delight the leisure seeker.


Chaweng Beach

This popular beach can be considered to be Koh Samui's most well-liked stretch of beach being frequented by a steady stream of visitors lured by its many attractions. Chaweng Beach is noteworthy for its appealing scenery and also features interesting shopping opportunities. Chaweng is also renowned for its splendid nightlife with plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants to be found in its environs. In Chaweng you will find everything from classy cocktail bars to pulsating dance venues where you can party the night away. The well-known strip known as Green Mango is the focus of the revelry with a host of nightlife venues available.


Lamai Beach

Lamai Beach is an appealing stretch of sands situated in a cosy nook of Koh Samui's southern area. This beach is less lively than Chaweng but is a pleasant locality in which to spend leisure time. As befitting a recognized tourist destination you will find plenty of shopping and dining venues here in addition to appealing spas and other visitor attractions. On the whole, this beach is rather laidback and relaxed with less intensity and activity compared to some of Thailand's bustling tourist highlights. In addition to the lovely beach, Lamai also features other natural attractions such as unusually shaped boulders and rocks in addition to pagodas, temples and various parks.


Bophut Beach

Bophut Beach offers an attractive stretch of sandy seashore fringed with palm trees that is always a delightful place to spend quality free time. A well-known feature at this beach is the Fisherman's Village which is an agreeable locality to stroll around and explore. Here you will find a host of quaintly charming Chinese-style shophouses intermingled with several more modern constructions that match the ambience of the location. In fact, this spot features a distinct rather Mediterranean atmosphere. Amongst these buildings, you will also find a number of engrossing boutiques offering quality apparel and jewellery. An accommodation option that you may consider whilst enjoying these attractions would be a Samui resort situated in proximity to Bophut like Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort.


Maenam Beach

If you desire tranquillity and seclusion rather than excitement and activity, Maenam Beach is sure to appeal to you. Maenam Beach is also rather downmarket when compared with some of Koh Samui's other beaches, drawing a steady stream of backpackers travelling on a modest budget. As you might expect the facilities for tourists at this beach fall towards the less expensive categories. However, Maenam Beach also has other attractions, including splendid views of the island of Koh Phangan. You will also have the opportunity to indulge in activities like golf and water sports as well as a number of cultural and eco-friendly pursuits.


Lipa Noi Beach

During weekdays this pleasant stretch of beach is comparatively quiet, providing a great place to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of some of Thailand's more popular tourist attractions. This place is also a great location to watch the splendid local sunset. Lipa Noi Beach offers plenty of soft sand and appealing waters for the visitor. This beach will suit visitors who desire to spend tranquil quality time rather than party seekers desiring to dance the night away. Accordingly, Lipa Noi Beach typically attracts an older, more mature and sedate visitor when compared with some of Koh Samui's popular tourist attractions.
