5 Beaches in Koh Samui You Need to Visit – Wonderful Coastal Escapes

For those seeking a getaway on the island of Koh Samui, there are several must-visit beaches, including Maenam, Lamai, Chaweng, Choeng Mon and Bophut, as described below.



For those who desire a beach where they can escape from the stresses and strains of the modern lifestyle, Maenam would be a great choice. You will encounter long picturesque pathways that extend to the beach; on the beach itself, you will notice attractive beach huts positioned between the pretty palm trees. You will find that the sands are an inviting shade of yellow with the waters being as you might expect at this lovely shore, shimmering and clear. At sunset, you will have the opportunity to take some beautiful photographs here too after which, you could enjoy a pleasant drink at a nearby beach bar.



Another fine beach in Koh Samui would be Lamai. You will see that this beach forms a broad expansive crescent and will be an idyllic location at which to spend quality leisure time. The waters here would be good for swimming and you will also have the chance to engage in several water sports. This beach also happens to be a scenic sight, with lovely palms swaying gently above the inviting sands. You will notice several huge granite boulders which are located slightly offshore as well. Although this beach is not as lively as some others, it still offers an interesting selection of spas and restaurants and will be an agreeable location at which to spend time.



Visitors to Koh Samui who seek a lively vibrant beach will find it at the popular Chaweng beach. It is also regarded as being one of Samui's finest beaches, impressing visitors with its splendid natural features. Here, you will encounter expansive white sands that stretch towards rocky headlands, creating a picturesque sight. Although this beach is fairly busy, you will still be able to locate a quiet spot at which to place your sun lounger. An accommodation choice to consider on a lovely spot at this beach would be Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort which is an appealingly located Koh Samui family resort.


Choeng Mon

Choeng Mon is an interesting sight as it is made up of a series of small bays rather than being one expanse of sand. Choeng Mon is another laidback beach where you could enjoy tranquillity and seclusion. Visitors will find that the biggest bay here features pleasant fine sands and some of the locations offer access to great places for snorkelling. You may also engage in kayaking at the bay's opposite side.



Bophut will be another fine beach for the leisure seeker, featuring pleasant sands of a slightly darker colour. At this beach, you will be able to enjoy striking views over the waters, which happen to be blue, perfectly clear and picturesque. There is no doubt that this beach would be a wonderful location at which to spend quality free time. Should you desire to enjoy a meal whilst relaxing here, you will have the opportunity to choose from the array of excellent cafes, restaurants and bars which you will find nearby.
