  • This was our go-to beach, not only because it was closest to our hotel but it was less crowded and quieter.

  • This beach is lovely, long sandy beach with a few restaurants and bars (highly recommended pavilion resort). Sea is clear and no seaweed, access is really easy.

  • It’s an unexplored beach with very few travellers. Mostly locals and expats visit this beach and this is kept very well one of the best beach of koh samui, if you like some calmness and peace. *Crystal clear water *low tides means perfect for water sports *very peacefull *scenic views It could have been better with a few shacks around but the market is nearby and you can grab your booze or food if you wanna spend a long time here!
  • The beach is surprisingly empty, even on a Saturday afternoon when I went. There are some couples and family members strolling about, but it's very quiet overall. The quality of the sand leaves much to be desired, as detritus, seaweed and other litter scatter along the main stretch of the beach. You can't picnic or bask in the sun there with such a condition, although some parts are cleaner than others. The waves are pretty strong coming in so it's not possible to swim too. That said, some patches are ok. The best thing is to stay at one of the hotel or resort lining the beach and lie there where it will be cleaner to relax.
