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

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.

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.
