Maenam Beach, Mae Nam

4.2
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. Put Maenam Beach into our Mae Nam trip itinerary app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Mae Nam.

  • The beach is situated with the nicest on Koh Samui, somewhat quiet, very well maintained. We definitely come here!

  • Beach is gravelly and not as white as in chaweng. For us, a nice beach but is definitely more beautiful on the island. The Lamai beach is unbeatable
