Maenam Beach, Mae Nam

(4.2/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • The beach isn't exactly for the groupies, nothing particularly at night does not happen except absolute peacefulness and nature. Even just walking on the beach is not so easy to find. However, the beach is not lonely as it might seem. Here is a pretty good infrastructure, a choice hotels both luxury and budget. In one of the hotels there are evening Yoga (sorry don't remember the name, but it is!))). No garbage, as on a nearby beach with dock. Bottom of the shore here gladen'koe, no stones. The depth starts almost immediately, through 1.5 meters. The water is clean, not polluted nor natural debris (leaves, sticks, etc), no gasoline scooters, no regular garbage. Here is a really nice swim, and then lie on the fine sands, obvolakivajas' waves)))
