Maenam Beach, Mae Nam

4.1
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.

  • Clean and neat but quite narrow. Was there in January and the Sun went down behind the House and palmer fairly early in the afternoon.

  • As already written in the title of the Mae Nam beach is a beach without waves. Quiet calm and pleasant enough. If you came to Koh Samui and want to visit several beaches, the Beach must be logged on to this list.

  • Most of the beaches are dirty, trash.. .not bad of dirt in the water. Cleanliness does not exist! The sea is a trash! Plastics bottles and some times you end up with flip flops and feet stained as a kind of tar. Scraps of boards with rusty nails. It's almost the same on all beaches
