Don’t Miss Out on the Coral Cove Bay of Koh Samui

The private Coral Cove Bay is serene and tranquil all year round (Photo courtesy

If an over-worked individual were in the process of deciding what place can give him/her the best opportunity to unwind in unparalleled tranquility, the Coral Cove Bay would be a sound choice. This Koh Samui beach is extraordinarily serene, since it only gets a small number of visitors annually.

The fact that it’s peculiarly quiet and relaxing at this beach is ironic, mainly because it’s situated in between two very popular spots in Koh Samui: Chaweng and Lamai. Even with numerous vacationists choosing to spend their holidays in the adjacent getaway spots, the Coral Cove Bay does an excellent job of maintaining this beach and keeping it private.

There are many chairs and tables with umbrellas placed on the powdery sand near the shoreline for guests to dine or drink on. Visitors to this beach get the chance to enjoy long swims at the beautiful ocean and can even go snorkelling – since there are huge boulders located near the beach, an abundance of corals and exotic fish can be found extremely close-by.

This Koh Samui beach is only 200 meters in length, so it’s not surprising to know that there are only a limited number of beachfront accommodations, which is a good thing since it helps keep the beach private. However, there are additional places to stay close to the beach such as the ShaSa resort, which isn’t located that far from the Coral Cove Bay.

A key advantage to the ShaSa hotel is the fact that they’re nestled on elevated surfaces, thereby giving vacationers stunning views of the vast ocean.

On Coral Cove Bay there are many commercial establishments such as a restaurant, which serves fusion cuisine, and a private pier where visitors are offered free usage of fishing plus snorkelling equipment.

However, spending a holiday around the Coral Cove Bay might be surprisingly expensive. If the premium amenities and accommodations on the Coral Cove Bay can be quite pricey, however there are a few cheap options on the beach.

Whether an individual is after superb or mediocre accommodations, this Koh Samuibeach has a range of commercial establishments to cater for both needs and more.

Koh Samui beaches: Phangka and Thong Tanote

Need a quiet retreat? Check out the Phangka and Thong Tanote beach (Photo courtesy

Out of the many beautiful Koh Samui beaches, Phangka and Thong Tanote are two of the least visited vacation spots, which make them excellent places for tourists looking to experience unmatched peace, privacy and relaxation.

Nestled within the southwest peninsula, these two private getaway spots are one of the few places not yet tarnished by industrial development, which explains why the traditional wooden dwellings can still be seen throughout the area.


Also known as Emerald Bay, Phangka is unquestionably one of the most remote places within the island, granting vacationers superb tranquillity and privacy. The natural beauty of the surrounding environment is well preserved in comparison to other places on the island of Samui nearby. As a matter of fact, a small fishing village is located within this beach – a bonus feature that guests at this area appreciate to a great extent.

For those who choose to, visitors are given an once-in-a-lifetime experience to submerge themselves into the island lifestyle by observing or even participating in their daily routines, such as fishing out in the open sea, they must give it try.

In addition to this, guests may feel free to hire a long-tail boat going to Koh Tan and Koh Mutsum - two deserted islands that are great for doing a little exploring. Moreover, there are plenty of coral reefs in nearby, making it ideal for snorkelling.

Like other Koh Samui beaches, accommodations at resorts close to the Emerald Bay are top-notch. One resort in particular, namely ShaSa Resort, boasts lavish pools and suites.

Thong Tanote

In comparison to Phangka, Thong Tanote offers even better privacy for its guests. The open, beautiful white-sand beaches and clear ocean water further enhances the feeling of tranquillity vacationists get whenever they spend their holidays here.

Not many people like going to Thong Tanote since it doesn’t have any shopping malls or huge parties, however it does offer visitors a chance to enjoy a romantic stay with their loved ones, away from the hustle and bustle of other tourist traps that are crowded and loud.

Aside from offering a mystical island atmosphere that people from all over the world so badly crave for, the accommodations presented by resorts are outstanding, yet affordable.

Breath-taking Lipa Noi

Mesmerizing sunset at Lipa Noi (photo courtesy of 

Your stay at a Koh Samui beach is bound to be very memorable and exciting. One of the most popular beaches is Lipa Noi. Located at the west coast, this Koh Samui beach is known for its unspoilt beauty, crystal clear waters, and breathtaking sunsets. People from all over the world go to this magical place to relax and enjoy some water activities such as snorkelling.

The uninhabited beach of Lipa Noi makes it seem like a private Koh Samui beach. The beach stretches without obstruction---no rocks and corals, just fine white sand and clear turquoise waters, making it a safe pick for families to bring their kids to. The water is also very shallow.

This beach is very easy to get to. Lipa Noi is very close to the pier, so people who are coming in from the mainland consider this area as the point of entry to the Island of Samui.

The resorts surrounding this place exert lots of effort to preserve the beauty of the area, all the while catering to the needs of their patrons. One such resort worth staying at is the ShaSa Resort. This place is the perfect venue to watch the breathtaking Samui sunset  and enjoy some of the most amazing foods offered on the island.

Lipa Noi is a tropical paradise. Aside from actually being in the water, one can just unwind while doing other things. The beauty of the place is enough to make one forget about the problems in your life. One can take a peaceful stroll at the shore, sip tropical drinks while gazing out at the water and shop for souvenirs.  If you came here for wellness and spiritual renewal, you won’t be disappointed. This is a place where the best spas are located. Have a traditional Thai massage or some native body scrub.

Lipa Noi also boasts about its food. Being surrounded with water, one can expect top quality seafood at this place. Taken fresh out of the water, your taste buds will surely enjoy all the island’s offerings.

Laem Sett

Stunning view of Laem Sett beach from the ShaSa hotel. 

If you’re planning for a vacation that is full of fun and adventure, consider a Koh Samui beach location. The third largest island in the country, Koh Samui beach is actually a part of an archipelago that forms the Ang Thong National Marine Park. It is the biggest of more than 80 islands, which are mostly uninhabited. And it’s strikingly beautiful. You can explore it by yourself by circumnavigating it by motorbike or car.  It will only take you a couple of hours.

Sometimes having too many people around reduces the fun of exploration for the traveller. You may choose to stay at the largest Koh Samui beach (Chaweng) or go to the smaller beaches in Samui South Coast. If you think that you can only find the best accommodations in the most populous Koh Samui beach areas, think again. As you will probably learn when you’re already traveling to exotic countries like Thailand, the hotels only get better the farther you are from the usual destinations.

In Laem Sett, you will find that Koh Samui Boutique Hotel or ShaSa Hotel – Samui Boutique Hotel will make you feel lucky for going south to find the right place to stay.  Immediately, when you arrive at the airport or wherever you come from, you will get the special treatment you fantasized about when you planned your vacation. Consider your ride from the airport (courtesy of trusted driver) to the hotel as your first taste of an amazing Koh Samui beach vacation. When you get there you will understand why it is a five-star beach resort. You will instantly enjoy the scenery: a scenic hillside resort that is complete with awesome cascading pools and flower-scented landscaped gardens.

Fly to a Koh Samui beach for a honeymoon, a company-sponsored pamper-me-kind-of-treat or just to have a home away from home as you take a big break from the hustle bustle of city life. Here, you can book for a stay at a luxurious private beachfront villa or one of the 32 suites with spacious sea view balconies.  Choose from among the many facilities and services available to complement your day: hydrotherapy pool, spa treatments, a large swimming pool and lots of outdoor activities (meaning, in the water or just under the sun).

ShaSa Hotel is where you want to take off from and go home to everyday. When you’re done taking advantage of the best that it can offer, you can explore the limitless possibilities in Koh Samui beach areas. Ask for travel and tour assistance from the hotel staff and they will happily tell you about where to book for snorkelling and diving, elephant trekking, golf, island tours, temples and historical sites in Laem Sett and the rest of the breath-taking island. You can also take advantage of the shuttle service to Chaweng and Lamai if you want to meet more travellers and local people. In the evening, you can enjoy the night market or the bars and discos in Koh Samui.

Taling Ngam

Taling Ngam Beach Photo from

If you have seen an ad about Thailand showing a romantic beach lined with gently swaying coconut trees and peaceful shores, you may have seen a Koh Samui beach. True, Phuket is the more popular destination especially during peak season but if you want the sandy beaches to yourself and just some people, then to this island 700km south of Bangkok you must go.

Now among Koh Samui beach destinations, Chaweng and Lamai are the most famous but why choose the same spot as the rest of the travellers if you can go to a more exclusive spot in the island? Taling Ngam offers quaint landscapes in a peaceful hideaway with fishing boats offshore. Take a picture right away and like travellers of old send it back home (though this time we modern folks do it on Facebook) to prove how good life is when on vacation. Have you been always fantasizing lazy afternoons on a hammock or on the beach staring at the sky like it’s the first time you’ve ever done it? In a Koh Samui beach, especially in Taling Ngam, you will surely have a space to do it.
If you’re coming for slow pace vacationing, this is the best place to be. And when you feel like flexing your muscles and take a break from water- and sky-gazing, you can also have all the fun with diving, snorkelling, and cruising. You will find that water sports don’t have to done like you’re going to Formula One race.  Of all the Koh Samui beach destinations, Taling Ngam is the most serious about exclusivity.  Except for the presence of a few travellers, the area gives you the space that you want for quality time.

Equally serious with giving the traveller a royal treatment at the ShaSa Resort, a hill-by-the-sea hotel near the Laem Sett on the Gulf of Thailand, the southern region. Why not stay the night at Taling Ngam instead?  Well, you are on vacation and have time on your hands to explore Koh Samui beach resorts with a ride by taxi, bus or motorbikes around the island. After a glorious day at the remote Taling Ngam, you can go back to your boutique hotel and spend the rest of your waking hour, reading in the book at the garden or getting a good massage at the balcony of your suite.

Thailand is a great place to claim a week or two of peace and quiet that you have always dreamed of. Be ready with your camera because the “oohs” and the “aahs” need to be documented in pictures. Come to Koh Samui beach, specifically Taling Ngam, and feel like a celebrity who wants to be anonymous.

There are so many gorgeous beaches in Koh Samui for you to enjoy. 

If you’re going to Thailand, it’s not at all possible to stay dry for long anywhere you go. Even if you skip Phuket and head to other islands like Koh Samui, your stay in the country will be just as satisfying. At the heart of Koh Samui attractions are the white sandy beaches fringed with coconut trees and everything you can possibly do on water.

Initially, the warm weather will make you feel gloriously lazy especially if you’re staying at ShaSa Hotel – Samui Boutique Hotel where you can have the best of two worlds – a view of the sea from the hillside while staying at a luxurious hotel. So actually, you get a taste of Koh Samui attractions right away, without going places yet. Check with the travel and tour assistance staff if they can make arrangements for watersports activities.

Of course, you couldn’t just stay indoors though it would be tempting. You just have to explore the island beyond the ShaSa property because it is what you came here for. There are two main Koh Samui attractions that would come highly recommended by locals and other tourists.

Chaweng Beach is the largest beach in the island. Here you can arrange for sea kayaking or canoeing, snorkeling and diving in one of the many resorts or diving shops because the island is near to Ko Tao and the Angthong National Marine Park where hydrophilics or water lovers go. Though the best time for diving is between June and August, it is definitely possible to enjoy this activity all year round. These activities are highly recommended Koh Samui attractions even for first-timers. In Lamai, you can expect the same thrills though you are likely to have less company here because it’s next in size to Chaweng. There are other beaches for those who need a place to reflect on the beauty of Mother Nature. For instance, there is the Laemset beach is one of the most relaxing beaches on Koh Samui and it's located only a few steps from the ShaSa hotel. This private beach is quiet and beautiful. 

Of course, you can’t just stay in the salty waters admiring the corals all the time. Relax and go sailing on one of the charter boats. Or you will have to walk on the island again. You will admire breathtaking waterfalls (one of Koh Samui attractions you must not miss) especially Namuang near Banturian. And there are other must-see places like the infamous Grandmother and Grandfather rocks and the sacred temples.

At the end of the day, back at the ShaSa Hotel you can rewind memories of Koh Samui attractions in the past hours and resolve to get more of them the next day.

With views like this one, no wonder the Big Buddha beach is one of the most popular Koh Samui beaches.

A Koh Samui beach list wouldn’t be complete without inclusion of Big Buddha Beach. Situated between the islands of Koh Farn and Koh Sam, this Koh Samui beach lies on the northeast tip of Koh Samui island. It is strategically located a mere 15-minute-road trip away from Chaweng, a popular nightspot for night owls, and just 25 minutes away from Nathon, the capital of Koh Samui. The village of Bophut also lies nearby.

What to Expect

Anyone out looking for a great time at night doesn’t have to look very far once they’re in the vicinity of this Koh Samui beach. Nightlife has never been more glamorous with the network of bars, nightclubs and restaurants that cater to various clients with the most discriminating tastes. The captivating peace in this Koh Samui beach provides a great place to hang out in, have a long, unhurried stroll on, or simply enjoy the soothing smell and taste of seawater to dispel those cobwebs of care from the confused mind. Big Buddha Beach offers tranquility in the right doses, as well as a healthy helping of nightlife noise to individuals out for a rocking good time.

Who Will Enjoy The Big Buddha Beach?

Practically anyone can treat themselves to the fascinating sights and sounds of this Koh Samui beach. With backpackers making up a good majority, Big Buddha beach also has much to offer to families, children and tour groups. The famous statue can be beheld in its magnificence towering at twelve meters at the highest point of a wide flight of stairs, with intricate dragon details characteristic of the brilliance of Thai art ingenuity. An added attraction is the array of art shops surrounding the temple of Wat Phra Yai, which houses the statue. Hunt for handcrafted silver jewelry in these fine shops.

What Can You Do at Big Buddha Beach?

Big Buddha Beach is a Koh Samui beach that has so much to offer. Go swimming with the entire family on this safe area where the water doesn’t run too deep and the current isn’t too strong. Get that much- wanted tan while engrossed in a great book. Go kiteboarding, snorkeling, and rock-walking. Immerse yourself in Koh Samui beach village culture by visiting the surrounding areas where a variety of services and shops from cybercaf√©s, supermarkets, diving instruction schools, car and bike rentals, travel agencies, gas stations, a post office, can be availed of. This is Koh Samui at its best—at Big Buddha Beach.

You go swimming in one of the ShaSa's many beautiful pools (pictured above) or at one of the popular beaches nearby. 

Whether you want salty or fresh water, Thailand is still one of the best countries in the world for swimming. You may have heard of Phuket numerous times but it doesn’t mean Koh Samui beaches will give you less value for your travel money. Samui’s hotel resorts are also one of the best finds in Thailand.  Case in point is  ShaSa Hotel where you don’t need to be forced to get initiated in Thailand swimming in one of the hotel’s cascading pools overlooking the sea.

Swimming may sound like a lazy tourist’s activity as opposed to kayaking, jet skiing, and other watersports. Yet, it gives you the best chance (on the boat you are more likely to be looking offshore) to look attentively towards the shore to admire the coconut palms slowly waving, the powdery sand, and the spellbinding landscape. Actually, your mind is the best camera for taking photos of beautiful Koh Samui beaches.

Where do you get wet in Thailand’s third largest island? Almost everywhere because you can only walk on the streets looking for Thai stuff to bring home, sleep on your bed at one of island’s best resorts or look at mysterious rock formations. Probably ninety percent of the time, you’re in Koh Samui beaches giving your feet a grand vacation on the sand and then before you know it you will be surrendering your body again to the sea. Swimming is the most natural thing to do in this island for every member of the family.

If you like places with a more festive mood, go to Chaweng and Lamai, the biggest Koh Samui beaches. While waiting for the night market or the bars and discos, you can take a dip into the sea and rush to nearby drinking and dining spots to re-charge. Changwe is also the island’s departure point if you want to go swimming and snorkeling in Ko Tao and Angthong National Marine Park. For true-blue backpackers who would like to pretend keeping the sea for themselves, there are Koh Samui beaches that won’t disappoint. Check out Choeng Mon on the north coast. It offers a series of bays and the clean waters are absolutely great for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. If you want to check out  a quiet private beach you should head to the Laem set beach located right next to the Shasa hotel. 

The amazing thing about a few days of life in this island is that you can go to the sea in all directions. Koh Samui beaches have everything to offer whether you like socializing with a crowd of beach folks or contemplating on the vastness of the sea by yourself or with just a few people.

Comparatively more upscale than neighboring Big Buddha Beach, Choeng Mon beach is one of those Koh Samui beaches that promises to live up to its higher class image.  Nestled on the northwestern edge of Koh Samui, Choeng Mon offers exclusivity to the more discerning traveler who prefers a more private setting for a holiday at any of the popular Koh Samui beaches. The elite handful of resorts that offer either three- or five-star accommodations attests to how individuality is nurtured on this side of the island.

How To Reach Choeng Mon

The serene setting of Choeng Mon is reachable by proceeding east past the airport turnoff. In similar fashion to most other Koh Samui beaches, the area is primarily a coastline setting and lies barely 15 minutes north of Chaweng. This captivating bay expanse is characterized by sprawling and pristine sandy beaches. Rock formations capture the imagination, and a small island on the other side mesmerizes with its own beauty. Choeng Mon, as many other Koh Samui beaches, offers much in the way of making more discriminating travelers feel they are truly away from the hustle and bustle of a very public world.

Resort Regulars

Beguiled by the relative seclusion offered by Choeng Mon, patrons who choose this beach among all other Koh Samui beaches belong to the older, package tour crowds. Frequenters are visitors from France and Germany, which is why entertainment and food selections are mostly geared toward this group. The spiciness of typical Thai cuisine is normally tempered down this side of Thailand. Most of the resorts have been designed to be self-sufficient within themselves, offering in-house entertainment to clients who do not wish to go venturing out for such. Western pop tunes are given expert covers by a good number of Filipino bands; traditional Thai dancing is also a staple in this upscale element of Koh Samui beaches.

Where to Stay

Choeng Mon beach naturally has several coves and islets just waiting to be explored by visitors out for some exploring to do on Koh Samui beaches. Luxurious resorts have been erected in a number of these islets and coves. The unbelievably two-level traditional teakwood Thai boats or barges and spectacular villas that make up The Imperial Boathouse provide breathtaking views of the surrounding areas, which have no villages but abound with tour counters, restaurants and minimarts. The White House,  considered by many as possibly the most romantic spot on this part of the island, offers exclusivity coupled with Thai hospitality. The Nara Garden offers captivating views and ultimate pampering to visitors out for a good dose of Thai warmth.

Mae Nam Beach

The Mae Nam Beach is a great place to go with the whole family

If you have been thinking about coming to Thailand for a few or weeks but hesitant to rub elbows with the rest of the million or more visitors to this country, don’t give change your mind yet or find another destination. If you know where to look, you can find a Ko Samui beach that is just right to bring out the backpacker spirit in you.

Mae Nam Beach could be one of the places you’re looking for. It’s a district in Ko Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand that is more known for its Chaweng and Lamai beaches. The island is next to Phuket as the most popular island destination in this Asian country. Because the largest beaches can get overcrowded in peak season, some visitors stay away from the island’s populous areas and look for their own Ko Samui beach destination.

For starters, stay at the ShaSa Hotel – Samui Boutique Hotel where you can get your first taste of Ko Samui beach view and breeze from its large terraces and pool bars. Kayak and water sports are also available. With the perfect hideaway to go home to at the end of the day, you can confidently explore the rest of the island. Go to Mae Nam Beach via the hotel’s shuttle service bound for Changwe. From there, you can ride a songthaew (some sort of a minibus) to Mae Nam which has a 7-km stretch of beach with white sand and coconut trees. Most of the time, the sea is calm and soothing to see.  Its shallow water is also appropriate for swimming and sunbathing especially for families with children.

Of course, a Ko Samui beach is not all there is in Mae Nam though the beautiful sunset from the east end is worth the time for coming here. Though many people would rather run to the nearby Changwe for its discos and a-go-go bars, there are a number of visitors who come to Mae Nam instead if they’re looking for a night of fun. There are some excellent pubs in the area where you can share some drinks and chat with a loved one or friends in Ko Samui beach venues. If you’re passing through Mae Nam on the way to Chaweng, you can drop by Mae Nam’s classy restaurants by the sea and in the village by the pier. You can also find a quite popular bakery and caf√©.

Everybody seems to be eyeing on Thailand but that doesn’t mean you have to look the other way if you want some peace and quiet.  Don’t forget that there is a quiet Ko Samuibeach accessible from pristine boutique hotel awaiting you.

What To Do While at Chaweng Beach

View from Chaweng Beach located only 15 minutes from the ShaSa Resort. (photo from

Want to relax, while sitting beachside sipping on fresh coconut juice during the day and go partying at night?

Sounds like you want the best of both worlds, but you are not sure which KohSamui beach you should stay at to accomplish this. Well, if you want to stay along a beautiful beach with plenty of entertainment options then you should consider Chaweng beach. Whereas if you want to stay somewhere quiet and more family oriented you definitely think about staying at the Laem Set beach instead.

Although it isn’t the most tranquil Koh Samui beach, the Chaweng beach makes up for it in other areas, specifically its nightlife.

Chaweng is home to the Koh Samui’s bubbliest nightlife, various malls and a scenic beach. The area is light years ahead of other Koh Samui beaches in terms of malls and nightlife.

There are numerous pubs, dance clubs and girly bars along the Chaweng strip. Green mango is the most renowned nightclub in Koh Samui.  The most popular meet up spot in the area is Tropical Murphy’s Irish Pub. Please note that all the nightclubs in the area close their doors at 2 am.

Clubbing and drinking not your thing? Then you should go to Petch Bucha Thai Boxing Stadium and watch some Muay Thai boxing matches. Matches usually take place from 9 pm until midnight.

Another popular place you should check out while you at Chaweng is the Moulin Rouge. Some of the most gorgeous lady boys perform here daily. After the show you can take photos with the performers, then when your trip is over you can even ask your buddies if you think this “chick” is hot.

The Chaweng beach is the longest Koh Samui beach and stretches over 5 miles. Along the beach you will find masseuse offering beachside massages and vendors selling fresh coconuts and cocktails.

If you are looking for some action packed water sports then you won’t have to look far. Chaweng beach is full of areas where you can go parasailing; jet skiing, water skiing and banana boating. Individuals who are more adventurous can also go out for a scuba diving 1-day trip from this beach.

This Koh Samui beach probably isn’t the beach of choice for families, but if you are single, young and looking for some fun then you definitely consider visiting this beach before heading to somewhere quieter to sleep.

Don’t worry about booking a hotel in advance, you won’t also have problem finding a place to stay. There are many hotels along Chaweng, however most of them are loud at night and won’t provide a great sleep. A close boat ride away is one of the top hotels just outside Chaweng, which is the ShaSa resort.

Three Best Koh Samui Beaches

Koh Samui is an island full of numerous gorgeous beaches. However, some of these Koh Samui beaches are better than other ones.

You settle for anything other than the best, so make sure you book a hotel where one of these top beaches are located.

Without further ado depicted below is a list of the top Koh Samui beaches.

1) Tranquil Laem Set Beach

The best Koh Samui beach is without a doubt Laem Set beach. Laem Set beach is situated along the southern coast of Koh Samui.

This private beach is serene, quiet and peaceful.

Large smooth boulders, surrounding palm trees leaning from all kinds of angles make this beach look spectacular. Simply put you won’t have to be a professional photographer to take a breath-taking photo at Laem Set beach.

Laem Set beach is also located close to beautiful reefs where you can scuba dive at and other attractions such as the Samui Tiger Zoo and Samui Aquarium.

2) Party animals flock to the Big Buddha Beach

The Big Buddha Beach has a complete opposite atmosphere from Laem Set. Laem Set is the quiet family oriented beach where you go to relax, whereas Big Buddha beach is an action packed beach where tourists go to have fun and party.

There loads of inexpensive bungalows and budget hotels located on this beach.

This is the beach of choice to go to and relax before going to Thailand’s most popular party, the “Full Moon Party”. The beach is only a short 5-10 minute speedboat ride from the Full Moon Party beach on the island of Koh Pha Ngan.

3) Thrill Seekers Prefer the Chaweng Beach

Perhaps the most famous beach of all the Koh Samui beaches is the Chaweng beach. It’s a popular place to play water sports such as jet skiing and kayaking. It’s also situated close to many attractions such as shopping markets and temples. 

Chaweng is the longest beach on the island and it contains radiant beautiful sand along its coast. 

Remember, the reason that Koh Samui beaches are second in popularity only to the beaches of Phuket is because of their quiet ambience. Phuket beaches are typically jam packed with tourists, which some people like but Koh Samui is more for people who want to enjoy a more relaxing getaway.
