Top family activities to enjoy in Koh Samui – Make a treasure trove of family experiences to cherish!

Koh Samui offers not only the beautiful beaches she is famous for but many other unique attractions of nature as well as sites of historical, cultural and religious significance. Exploring these will provide hours of entertainment, learning and will build a reservoir of quality time spent together.


Discover the beauty of Na Muang Falls

Have a day out with your family visiting the two cascading beauties of Na Muang about 18 km from most Koh Samui resorts. Have a picnic lunch packed and make the most of the day exploring the lush greenery which is the backdrop of the falls. Let the kids enjoy the cool waters of the pool at the bottom of the falls. Thereafter walk uphill with them to discover the second equally charming Na Muang 2. For a round of photographs with the falls as your backdrop.


Be awed by the majestic elephants

Your children would love the experience at the Elephant Sanctuary at Koh Samui which has been created to provide their natural habitat of water bodies for bathing, frolicking in the mud, foraging for their food to protect them from overuse for other activities. The sanctuary supports ethical elephant tourism so you would also become a part of that worthy cause too. Enjoy the day with elephants for company, top it off with a vegetarian traditional Thai buffet and capture memories for a lifetime as experienced by guests from Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort.


The Big Buddha Temple or Wat Phra Yai

This huge gilded seated statue of Lord Buddha looks majestic from afar as it beckons visitors to the colourful Phra Yai temple. At 12 metres height, it has become a popular attraction and is one of the unique sights visitors note as they land by air at Koh Samui. Explore the temple complex, walk up the steps to get a closer view of the statue and enjoy a glimpse of the breathtaking view from that position and capture images.


Immerse yourselves in sun, sand and the sea

Spoil yourselves thoroughly at a total beach day. Enjoy the sound of waves, let your feet sink into the almost satin sands, acquire the beautiful tan that you were dreaming of as you build sandcastles, play beach volleyball, do a treasure hunt and do a family swim together. Your kids in screams of laughter and fun, the feeling of excitement and energy, the togetherness will keep you happy and engaged for a long time. Add the inviting coconut water and wedges of fruit to hydrate and keep you revived. A day that the whole family will remember for a long time.


A sea kayaking experience

Set off early and paddle your way through the cluster of islands to the spectacular Ang Thong National Marine Park. Discover the naturally secluded caves, unique rocky formations to go under and hidden lagoons adding colour to the smooth gliding experience on clear water as you approach this popular destination. Your family would love this novel way of experiencing this amazing National Park.
