  • Great beach to go with kids - can play in sand and swim in low water. Water temperature is amazing. Water is not white crystal clear because of sand. On main beach and water in front there are no issu...  more »
  • The beach has its positive and negative sides. It is good that it has good depth and need not be long to go in the Sea 3-4 meters and already deeply enough. The sea here is not always quiet, some days the waves were tangible, although most of the time small and visited in the morning calm. Accordingly, when the waves water unclear-bottom is sandy, when calm is almost transparent. Fuel oil not noticed-can are lucky. It seems to me that this is from some polurazvalennyh boats, which are sometimes used to entertain tourists. One day as the kursirovala such wreck-stunk like all coast and some people noticed traces of oil, then when it has not been all returned to normal. Generally on the beach many normal personal watercraft for. The purest place in the heart of Lamai to the North after the river-Skunk sea is becoming more and more bolotoobraznyj look for clean water and smell, as people remove there housing and living is not present to the South begin scenic boulders-beautiful, but there's an even worse. swim beyond the beach very close fit to the cult place of "Grandma and Grandpa", but getting there on the beach is nearly impossible. Here I noticed in a sea of duckweed-i.e. bathing worse. Still one drawback-the jellyfish, but rarely encountered. In the heart of Lamai stand panels with instructions how to act in case of a burn mark and stand the bottle with vinegar. Us at the very beginning of seared jellyfish, safe-burn as from nettles, but I've heard and the more dangerous cases. Then we swam in Lycra. Don't know to put this disadvantage specific place-now everywhere began to have problems with jellyfish-a few years ago I got in Khao Lak burn from more serious jellyfish-leaf as boiling water, I was in a lajkrovoj t-shirt and suffered only the public part of the legs, but There generally did not know what to do, and here are the instructions and acetic acid. Most of all I liked the water temperature could not come out for hours from the sea and it is compensated for any inconvenience.

  • Nice clean beach. Not too many vendors. Really like this place
  • Not as nice as expected, with a fair bit of rubbish and the like. Definitely nicer beaches in Koh Samui
  • Not the best beach, not a blue clear water at all. Much much much more quiet and relaxing in some part then other beachea
  • Perhaps the best beach in Samui.
  • White sandy beach.. Love it
