  • For 1 month on the island with a car rental is the beach of Chaweng, which I recommend because it is the traffic jam. Beautiful beaches are to the West and North of the island. Good discovery

  • At this speed, Koh Samui will lose what should be its strengths, the beaches and the sea. Already the beach from the Lamai beach road, access is problematic, except for those staying in a residence or a hotel that has access to the sea. This privatization of access is a problem, but not the only one. It must be recognized that some institutions have access on the beach, clean their front, but not enough. Cleanliness of the beaches and the sea is worsening visibly and soon we will more than eyes to cry. If the Thailand does not take radical measures, she's going to lose his precious advantage already unfortunately well compromised. If you are travelling in the vicinity, you will find clean what is seen, the rest becomes trash. I come here often and I see these degradations and especially the disenchantment of many visitors.

  • Beautiful beach but a lot of waves when we stayed in lamai. Do not come with children because the sea is deep with the first steps. Quieter than chaweng but nothing exceptional Beach

  • 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.
