  • The dirtiest, ugliest beach we have ever seen. Also partial total run over (with crimped & chair seats, it is side by side like sardines) and full of annoying, intrusive masseurs and seller. The waste, the whole mess on the beach seems not to bother the people responsible... Disgusting! Can not be fooled by images. I wonder how such an overall assessment has been reached.

  • Lovely stretch of Sandy beach. Peaceful and pleasant except for the foot massage services being forced upon you. Be firm and say no if not keen. They will ask you to test but then make it difficult to say no after that. Kills the fun here.
  • 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
  • Heaven on earth everyone's is friendly
