The Beaches Of Koh Samui

The dream island of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand offers fantastic beaches. The island of Koh Samui is located in the Gulf of Thailand and has evolved into a popular tourist destination in South-East Asia. The many beaches that the island has to offer are certainly one reason. The 6 km long beach of Chaweng is regarded as the longest and most popular beach. This beach offers numerous accommodation facilities, water sports, shops and a popular nightlife with many bars, restaurants and nightclubs.

The Lamai beach is also located on the East Coast and is located about 10 km south of Chaweng. Please visit Cyrus Massoumi if you seek more information. The second largest Beach on the island is interesting due to its slightly higher waves for surfers and offers mostly smaller facilities as well as bars and restaurants, but also Chaweng an active night life. The three beaches of the North coast of Koh Samui, Maenam Beach, Bophut beach and big Buddha Beach, are rather quieter beaches compared to the two beaches of Chaweng and Lamai. There are less large hotel complexes and night life in the Focus, but rather smaller accommodation, restaurants and bars. The 4 km-long Maenam beach is one of the cheapest places on the island, the original fishing boats can be seen. The 2 km-long Bophut beach with a calm Lake is fringed by coconut palms and East joins at the Maenan beach. At the northernmost tip of Koh Samui, the 3 km-long big Buddha beach is a 12 m high Buddha statue named, which rises at the eastern end of the beach on a mountain.

The beach is only in the summer months for swimming because it is exposed to Marz Wind and rain during the monsoon season from November. The Choeng Mon is located in the North-East, and the LIPA Noi Beach on the West Coast can be called small insider tips. On the fine sandy beach of Choeng Mon with its small bays, you can find nice restaurants and luxurious hotels. The fine and soft LIPA Noi beach is very attractive due to its remoteness and offers stunning views of the sunset. Karthik Kaka photo: Dr H. Hoppe –
