Maenam Beach, Mae Nam
(4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Laid-back and private, Maenam Beach mainly draws a backpacker crowd. The beach offers excellent views of the island of Koh Pha Ngan, and its resorts are set much farther away than at other beaches, allowing for a quieter atmosphere. Stretch out on the soft golden sand, in the sun or under the canopy of palm trees, and then cool off in the calm sea. Amenities include many restaurant options along the beach, as well as massage kiosks offering Thai massages. If you fall in love with the spot, consider staying in one of the affordable bungalows dotting the shoreline. With our online itinerary creator, Mae Nam attractions like Maenam Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Luckily, there's still these beautifully quiet beaches on Koh Samui that the mass-tourism have overlooked. Mae Nam is one of them. I would stay here any day! 
  • Here we have 14 days of relaxation spent. Here it is not so crowded as at Chaweng beach. Paradise Beach Resort is recommended.

  • The dingy Beach (affected by nearby Pier) with quite a large number of stray dogs. The sand is not the smallest. Recommend a drive to a nearby beach.
