Maenam Beach, Mae Nam

4.2
#1 of 7 in Beaches in Ko Samui
Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Not too impressive because there are many streams towards the sea and you can see rubbish floating out.  more »
  • Long quiet beach with great swimming - unlike other beaches you get deep enough to swim close to the beach. Maybe not so great for small children - they would need to be watched. The sand is not as so...  more »
  • The beach is nice to swim and we do different water sports but it is classic and is not the most beautiful of Kho Samui

Where to stay in Mae Nam

The quiet, laid-back nature of Mae Nam often attracts couples and families, leaving fewer budget-friendly options catering to backpackers. The town center still manages to retain a liveliness despite the relaxed atmosphere and offers a modest selection of self-contained bungalows. However, the main concentration of accommodations here lie (unsurprisingly) along the water. Beachside hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses offer understated luxury and clean rooms close to amenities such as restaurants. Don't fret too much if air-conditioning is not offered, as the gentle sea breeze usually precludes the need for AC.
