Top Attractions Near Chaweng Beach – Koh Samui’s Best

Chaweng is the most popular area in Koh Samui. The beach is a huge expanse of golden sand, which is hugely popular amongst tourists. The crescent-shaped beach is 5km long; boasting an offshore reef. If you've booked a Chaweng resort, here are the top attractions near Chaweng Beach to explore.


Chill on Chaweng Beach

The 5km stretch of beach is Chaweng's biggest lure. And Chaweng beach resorts are the most popular on Koh Samui. Staying at a popular resort is an excellent choice because you get to enjoy area attractions of swimming and water sports. Popular options like Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort make a good base to explore area attractions and for enjoying luxurious comforts plus activities of diving and snorkelling, deep-sea fishing, boat tours, and island-hopping tours.


Have Fun at Aquapark Samui

Enjoy a fun day on Chaweng Beach at Aquapark Samui. So easy to reach from your hotel in Koh Samui, the theme park is located opposite the Monkey Bay Bar. The water park is located about 40 metres off-shore from the beach and is ideal for the entire family to enjoy safe fun in the water. The activities at the water park are spread across inflatable structures, which offer a range of thrills for people of all ages.


Take Part in a Local Cooking Class

Thai food is popular across the world and in Chaweng there are several cookery schools where you can learn a thing or two about recreating those iconic flavours. Spice Spoons, for example, is located at a top Chaweng resort. And there you can savour a range of activities from visiting the local markets to buy your produce, learning to cook gourmet Thai dishes, and even making merit packs for the temples. The experience includes visits to coconut farms and is your best chance to learn how to recreate your favourite Thai dish back home.


Play Football Golf

Yes, there is such a sport in Samui and it's loads of fun! The sport is so popular that it's spreading to destinations outside of Thailand. To play the game, you've got to sink a football in 18 holes with the least amount of 'kicks' because you use your feet to manoeuvre the ball instead of a golf club. In Chaweng you get to play Football Golf at a sunny coconut plantation. Choose your course from easy to hard. Plus, it's a marvellous plan to spend a day out; especially since your game includes refreshments and a small souvenir ring with your score engraved in it.


Watch a Muay Thai Boxing Match

Thai style boxing or Muay Thai is huge in Koh Samui; especially since the Phetchbuncha Samui Boxing Stadium, which is the centre for Thai boxing, is located on the island. Watching the sport is quite a treat because Muay Thai boxing is one of the most strenuous sports out there and is very entertaining. Fights take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Matches start at 9 pm on Saturdays and 6 pm on the two weekdays.
