  • Most boring beach on the island. Only girl bars and mid range hotels. Recomend to find other alternatives.  more »
  • Seaweed and scattered trash... Fine sand and beautiful stretch. Small waves friendly but not for young children. Prefer a hotel with pool.

  • Definitely-Lamai beach, this is the best thing to eat on the island. And so, speaking about it, I would like to say your opinion about the island. Having visited almost the whole world understand that the island unnecessarily advertised and nothing outstanding on it not even sravnivshaja in Phuket. Lamai beach is not great, the total length of the river is about 5 km away. Narrow Sandy line, difficult to walk and exercise, sometimes messy. In January, the waves, so practically nobody in it is not awash, except Russian. The water is muddy, but certainly not crystal-clear. Apart from water scooters rentals is nothing. Call it an exotically beautiful, too impossible. So a strong 6 on the 10-point scale. Also everything else on this island-attractions not significant, except for excursions around the island have nothing to do: good little restaurants, massage parlours, good quality a little, good stores there. So choosing between Phuket and Samui is to choose between Moscow and Michurinskom of the Tambov region and there and people live there, but the quality of life. Go here for the winter, but reason to live in such conditions, I don't see. If you want to spend the winter in Tae or decent rest, Phuket is not comparable, though there's nothing outstanding. The cost of meals, accommodation, taxi fares, quality hotels, entertainment, Russian diaspora, infrastructure, air-post-all in favor of Phuket. Summary: the sense of visiting Samui does not see at all, there is nothing that would be better. Pure marketing and justification for their link wives husbands))) Although one advantage is-there is no Puketskih auto traffic.

  • Great sandy beach with clean water. A lot of bars and restaurants along the beach - however I liked more local joints along main street (much cheaper and real Thai food). Good Thai massage stands. I've been there in September 2016.
  • Not bad beach but we weren't impressed. Maybe because it was a bad weather for two whole weeks. Commercialized-you are paying for beach chairs. There were a warning for jellyfishes while we were there, so not for swimming-make sure to check that. Have a lot of restaurants on the beach.
  • Nice beach!
  • nice beach
  • Hotels and even hotels everywhere. Surely not the best beach in Thailand.
