Another smaller beach area, popular for those seeking to get away from the larger beach areas. Several resorts and restaurants located here. Another beach for those looking to get away from the bar areas of Chawang or Lamai.

What an amazing beach. Breathtaking, small, great snorkeling, good restaurants and awesome beach massages while you check out the sea. This beach has it all. You could spend every day of your holiday at this beach and have a great vacation.

This is the most perfect beach I've ever been to. I truly questioned why the movie The Beach wasn't filmed here instead of Koh Phi Phi. Not much else to say - it's postcard perfect.

Gorgeous shallow beach, perfect for kids but just watch out for the rocks under the surface. Nice vibe here.

We went to 5 different beaches on Ko Samui and found this one the most beautiful. Small, beautifully curved, with soft white sand and clear water. On the right side you can climb the stones and take some great pictures. There is lots of coral...More

you really need to get on a boat and visit the islands. generally there is no good off-beach snorkelling in Koh Samui. same goes for Kao Lak - you need to go to the Similan or Surin islands.
